First of all, I have to say how sorry I am that I'm not around much at the moment. There's still loads going on around my work, I don't exactly know which way is up and I don't know how long it's going to take to sort itself out. So, I'm very sorry if I don't read all the entries I should and I'm also sorry that I haven't been able to post. I appreciate you all very much and I'm very grateful that you still want me around. I'll be back, I promise.

Having said that, I couldn't let today go by without marking it in some way. Today is the fifth birthday of a young lady who is incredibly important to me. I can't believe that Alice is already five - where does the time go? Happy birthday, I hope you have a wonderful day. I will be sending some gifts soon, and I hope to see you towards the end of the year.

These pictures are not mine, and now they're not recent, but they show perfectly how beautiful Alice and her dear mother are. I'm proud of both them, proud to know them and to have a small part to play in their lives.
