    Wonderful Manda, I'm surprised we haven't met before as a fellow citizen of Cornwall? (this is well you tell me we have, and I get all embarrassed!).

    Hi Miguel, I don't think we have met but we exchanged emails in the last month or so when you sent round a co-housing message across LiveWire! :) Great to be in contact again. :)
