  1. Dear Sarah,
    What a marvellous photo, the name Mary Brooks and Dinah Eastop rings masses of bells but it is a long time since we met so I cant pin a face to them!
    I so enjoy all these Posts, many thanks for keeping us on the list!
    Happy New Year to you all, DAWN and SIMON

  2. What a shame you missed the photo opportunity, – if I was better with technology I would offer to photoshop you in!
