Sorry, been out of touch
Thanks to "Orange" our internet has been off so I have not been able to keep up with your adventures, I am now up to date and vey impressed. Wonderful writing and illustrations, very exciting, glad your mummy was not there during the dog attack - any way well done, your idea of living in a ger might be a good idea after I have seen pictures of what has happened to your house ! Lots love and keep safe x
