The time has come for me to say goodbye forever I am not brilliant at expressing my emotions But in the words of ‘Sealion Dion’ …. ‘I will always love you’ If you check in the filing cabinet You will find my portfolio of shares I have kept the Woolworth's certificate it may be valuable They may resurface one day …. That’s the wonder of Woolies! If you ever need a new sofa…. don’t forget these immortal words The DFS Half Price Sale starts at 10am on Boxing Day!

I wrote it specifically to appeal to Viv's sense of humour ...I'm not sure other's will understand the very British humour here - I hope Viv likes it or it's another N/A for the ever growing collection:-) hugs Jan xxx
