Congratulations to Michael Swan and Angelica Edora Congratulations to Michael Swan and Angelica Edora who celebrated their marriage in The Seychelles on 21 January. They brought their wedding forward to ensure that they did not breach UAE (United Arab Emirates, where they live) rules re unmarried couples spending time together.

Knit & Natter On Tuesday a lady brought us two boxes of luxury biscuits from a friend to say 'thank you' for our Christmas Angels. This friend had picked up one of the angels and sent it to someone who had just lost their sister; she loved the angel but sadly in the Christmas hassle it was lost. However our message on the label was remembered and although a replacement angel had been made, it was our original that had brought her comfort and the biscuits were just to thank us for that.
