Just a quick update to my post here from a couple of days ago - I got a reply from the other person I had contacted at the sanctuary (she had been on leave for a few days) and she would love to accept my offer of greetings card and a portrait as a prize!!
Thank you to everyone who left comments on that post - it looks like you were all right and it just took a little patience on my part (something my mother and S will tell you I am sadly lacking in!) and for the right person to read the email!
Anyway, I may be the only person ever to say it but I am delighted to be in the dog house!!
