I wanna be a Debaser....

I spoke to Helena last night - she asked me to thank everyone for their kind words, with a special mention to Mary for her lovely message.

Helena, I hope these words bring comfort to you:

In a baby's castle just beyond my eye
My baby plays with angel toys that money cannot buy

Who am I to wish him back into this world of strife?
No, play on my baby, you have eternal life

When all around is silent and sleep forsakes my eyes
I'll hear his tiny footsteps come running at my side

His little hand caresses me so tenderly and sweet
I'll breathe a little prayer and close my eyes and embrace him in my sleep

Now I have a treasure I rate above all other
I have known true glory - I am still his mother.

OMG, you didn't tell me you did this, aw, Carol thank you!  Just a quick message, I leave in the morning (if they will let me on the plane, seriously, the kitchen sink?  I'm tempted, who knows what I am facing when I get to Oz (sorry HeavyD!)  Bags are more or less packed anyway, I just wanted to say a small bye, not a big bye bye, and to thank you all for your help and support over the last few months.  This is a GREAT forum, I love Mr B's books and actually he's a damn fine fella in real life, as are all the 'fiends' who I have met, both in person, or just talked to.  I tried to ring you-know-who but he hung up on me, I just wanted to say similar, no agenda, and no fight in me at all, I just want to go on holiday and see where it takes me.  If anyone does talk to him, that's it.  Love to Jo, an incredibly lovely girl, I text you honeybee, and a special virtual cuddle to RC, who I could not have done without.  I love you Carol, it's that simple.

I'll check in when I can everyone, but for now?  Let's ROCK - onward, upward! x
