I decided to take this post down. It served it's purpose last night, but today is a new day!
However, Steve made this point which I think is worth keeping:
'We need to train the whole world that, 'Hello how are you?' is a fine question to anybody, whether or not you know they have been ill and regardless of what sort of ill they've been.'
PS when the radio alarm went of at 6.30 this morning, what was playing? 'The only Way is Up' - Yazz and the Plastic Population. Honestly! How about that then
