Anne - thank you for the very kind comments for Rachel - I will make sure she reads it and posts some more of her piccies.
Also - don't be so hard on yourself - you look as friendly as you write. I hate seeing my own pictures - particularly the ones I tried of myself as the perspective was distorted (too close for portrait). Gotta get used to the fat that I don't look as young as I once did I guess!!
Bit busy over the next few days - on a course - but I will try to keep dippig in.
Everyone else - keep sending in those portraits...
