I have opted for another day at the races next month, because I am still desperately skint and need to gamble to win some money. And with logic like that, I can't lose.
As I mentioned to Clare in my response, having sent out almost half of my letters now, I attempt to guage in my head the reaction of each person who receives my strange request. I was always of the opinion that Clare herself would be accommodating because she just comes across as that sort of person on TV. And lo, I haven't been dissapointed.
the only other thing that I want to touch upon today, although I should possibly re-phrase that, is one of the emails that I received this morning, this one from a lady called Brandi who lives in El Paso in Texas. I'm not sure if she lives in the 'Old' part where the meat sauce comes from. I'll simply reply by saying that I disagree entirely with you, Scarlett couldn't be "Frumpy" if she tried. Obviously you've never watched 'Girl with a Pearl Earing'.
