Having celebrated my 91st birthday at Dairy Barn, I must say, that it
was my happiest ever. Sorry that I didn't meet you in person Sally but
I must tell you how perfect your " housekeeping " is. We constantly
said....." they have thought of everything"---. During Sunday before
going out for my celebratory meal, I needed to wash some crockery, but
thought about splashing my dress--- wished I had a pinney.... then
thought" they have thought of everything" but surely not a pinney.
There in the cupboard was a brand new pinafore!! You are incredible.
Having spent 20 years on the Island, never before have I found it such a wonderful place to be.
Thank you Sally
