James Oswald Hi Zoe,

Heilan Coos (the correct spelling!) are damp, as is everything else. Otherwise fine. Still waiting for two to calve, but the rest are gambolling happily over the hill.

Still finding my way with Goodreads. Don't take this personally, but I think it friended you on my behalf because I linked to facebook. I'm a bit annoyed at that, not because I wouldn't have friended you, (and when did friend become a verb? I thought it was befriend?) but because I'm wary about personal data being traded back and forth without my explicit permission.

On the other hand, so far it's linked me with you and Clare McGowan, so maybe I can forgive it thus far.

Will you be at Harrogate this year? I missed it last time, so I've a lot of catching up to do.

Zoë Sharp Hi James

Thank you for Friending me. Lovely to catch up with you here. How are the Heelund Coos?
