Just a quick comment regarding PenPals. Last year I applied to BLF for a PenPal. We are all in the same boat one way or the other so to have an understanding correspondent is an excellent idea. I hope those of you who do not have a PenPal via BLF will take a look at it. For me, it has proved a fantastic experience. I have a REAL friend. He is from Norfolk, I am from South Wales. We sometimes text each other too if there is something important health-wise. Emails are so regular between us that we really have become true friends. Please just take time to have a look at the PenPal scheme. It has worked well for me.
