Another year and you, my darling, have missed so much in the last few years; both girls getting married, selling up in Florida and moving house. I know when you became ill one of your deep regrets was that you would not be able to walk your girls down the aisle. I hope I was a reasonable substitute and did you proud. Needless to say, you were in our thoughts every step of the way. It has been difficult making decisions regarding our properties but I hope you would have made the same choices.
PPR still occupies me but hasn't taken up as much of my time due to the events above. However, we ladies are still endeavouring to raise money for vital research into this underfunded and neglected disease. We are well over the half million pound mark now and have various initiatives in the pipeline for the coming year.
Again it is my intention to contribute my Christmas card money to The PPR Foundation Just Giving page to help our charity raise these vital funds for research. Family and friends have always been extremely supportive of PPR so instead of sending me a Christmas card if you could spare a few pounds in lieu we would be very grateful. I have endeavoured to make it simple for the technophobes among you (me included) and this year you can donate from your mobiles by texting 70070 and typing EPAR49 into the message body. You can, of course, donate in the normal way on this website.
Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry and peaceful Christmas and health and happiness now and in the coming year.
Lots of love
