    I liked your competition entry a great deal, BellaM. Especially the last line, perfect. I wanted to read more.

    Thank you, Bella but it isn't my birthday - at this rate I'll have had more birthdays than the Queen.

    Schönbrunn, just looked at it online, jaw-dropping. Lovely to read about Walter once more. Beautiful descriptions of scenery - I was there with him in the car looking out of the window. Great comp entry, Bella.

    Hi Bellla. Just dropping you a line to say Hi, and that your advice about this time last year was really helpful. As you know, Milo arrived in our household last May and now he is about to celebrate his first birthda!. It's been one hell and one heaven of a journey this past year but we're all still together (self, daughter, cat and Milo-pug). He may have trampled my garden like a tank but ok.... Everything you said (and warned) was helpful. And he has given us all a new lease of life xxx
