  57. Fantastic news and well deserved, saw you and your stand today on the PaperArtsy periscope blog. Looked great, made up for not being able to get to show as car broke down last week in middle of nowhere in pitch black. It's still in garage, feeling it's going to be an expensive repair. When are you on Hochanda with Ken Oliver, I remember you saying you would be doing a master class with him after the show. Don't want to miss it. Safe journey home and well done. Much hugs Karen xxx

  66. Congratulations Barbara, well deserved awards. I so glad you and the Clarity team's efforts have been recognised yet again, it must give the whole team inspiration. Sounds like they are going to need it to cope with all the new orders.

    Posting this from my hospital bed as I was admitted again with pancreatitis on Wednesday night. I was at the Sage concert hall in Gateshead just 2 songs into the main band's song list when the pain became too much I handed my wife the car keys and went to find a taxi to take me to A&E. Well, I didn't see any point in her missing the band she's been following for about 30 years. Well I was admitted again. Had my first food today since Wednesday. It was most welcome!

    BTW, she did meet me at A&E when the concert finished. :-). xxx
