    Thanks for your Tweet… I tried to reply but got pop up message that I “cannot message you because you don’t follow me…”

    Twitter works well one way but two way traffic is fraught with crashes! like the M25.

    I like your new website!

      Thanks Fran – How brilliant that you got here. You can always message me via ‘Ask me a question’ too.
      I’d (wrongly) assumed that if I messaged you, you’d be able to reply, sorry. BW Cathy
