'd just like to say thanks to purplerabbits (who again demonstrated her unerring ability to say the right thing at the right time), dennyd (who had to sit through a lot of tears) and grahamb (who, poked by the conscience fairy into ringing me, got the post-weeping sleepy kitten, so I'm sorry about that) for calling me last night. Talking to you all helped, a lot, so, thank you.
~hugs and many hearts and flowers~
And I'll thank Dominic, as well, though he's not reading this, for the lovely e-mail I got this morning.
And indeed everyone who's said lovely things to me. Thank you all.
