Also, lydaclunas, I got your parcel three days ago, but what with all the hospital stuff going on, it rather got lost in the shuffle. I opened it last night and was delighted -- thank you so much! Dinotopia I read today for the first time, and it is indeed very nifty. Simon has already fallen in love with "Froggy" and stolen it from his brother temporarily (along with Liz's stuffed wombat), but I'm sure it will make its way back to its rightful owner when Paul is old enough to appreciate such things. And the olive oil was a very nifty touch, too.
In short, you guys are the bestest. Thanks so very much.
stmarysalice, I will reply to your e-mail soon -- thanks!
