Dear Favourite Son, thank you for the hours spent on Sunday trying to sort out the problems on my computer. For showing that it is not just me that gets frustrated with Google sign-in when it constantly signs-out. For managing my anxiety when you suggested deleting 8000+ photos from my hard drive. For patiently explaining that when I delete photos they sit in a Recycle Bin. I did not know I have to delete them from there also. Is this why my computer has been running so slow do you think? In high esteem, yours eternally grateful. Dear Heart, can you please explain the nails that protrude in each the corner of the door frame? Are they yet another unfinished renovation project, or a sign that you are releasing your creativity? Yours in admiration. Dear Brian the plumber, thank you for coming round so promptly to do the work in the utility room. I thought you had been excessively busy, or on an extended world cruise. Yours in appreciation. Dear Heart, when I said we needed to rein in our spending I meant with stocking the wine cellar and the fine dining. I did not mean with essential house renovations. Next time can we compare lists of his and her priorities? PatientlyYours. Dear Granddaughter, when I suggested we camped out in the garden I did not mean build a raised platform with a ladder, and covering the ceiling with stars. I admire your 7 year old vision, especially the bit about making planets and hanging them from the ceiling. Did I mention that room is my new craft space? Besottedly yours. Dear Alexa, I'm pretty sure food colouring would work a treat as an art medium. You could also try tea and coffee, preferably without the milk. And I hear red wine is good too, though I prefer to drink mine. Yours in understanding. Dear Campervan Builder, thank you for not running off with our money. No, seriously. I began to wonder if you were sunning yourself somewhere at our expense. We have a deadline and a holiday of our own planned. Please deliver on time. Trustingly yours.
