And to Aileen - Happy Birthday! I agree with all the posts above and feel that MW is never quite the same when you're not around. I hope you are having a great birthday (which you share with my son, 24 today - yikes!) Wishing you all the very best
Happy birthday to your son, Elena! So far I've only met two other people who share the same date.
By coincidence though I was born in the town of St Andrews, purely by chance. It should have been a home birth but there were complications, and the hospital there (now no longer) was the nearest to where we lived.
Many thanks to you and other later posters for your good wishes.
