Flibbertygibbet is so disappointed not to see my friends the wetas, I think you should go visit her, and commiserate.
Flibberty and I got single about the same time. It was tough times, but baby, just look at the pair of us now. 12 months on. We both have our own homes, she is spoilt for choice with jobs, she writes, she's still sewing, and wonder of wonders, she knits too.
Well done Flib, from someone who knows.
