Then half an hour ago or so there was an email:
"I do like a coincidence. Just standing by my mirror in the kitchen last night after I got back and just pulled this out from behind some other postcards... The date, the Poirot reference ..... Xxx. "
It may be a new year, but some things don't change as much as we might like to think. I'd still like a check dress like Molly's; and I'll still be writing post cards. Do add it to the list of resolutions.
