THANKS, BRIAN. FELT A BIT OF DISLOYALTY DOWN AT THE HARBOUR, BEING THERE WITHOUT MY FRANCES, BUT I KNOW SHE WOULD HAVE WANTED ME TO CARRY ON, BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO BE EASY. MISS HER SO MUCH. HER SIX SISTERS WHO CAME OVER FOR THE FUNERAL RETURNED TO MALTA YESTERDAY AND TODAY WERE ATTENDING THEIR OTHER AUNTY'S FUNERAL WHO DIED THREE DAYS AFTER FRANCES, SO A DIFFICULT TIME FOR THAT LOVELY FAMILY.

I WONDERED IF THE SKYE CROSSING MIGHT BE ANOTHER TAYLOR ACQUISITION - SO WILL HEAR IN DUE COURSE FROM YOU WHAT HERE ROLE IS TO BE.

HOPE YOU SRE ALL WELL AND THAT YOUR WEE BOSS IS KEEPING YOU IN ORDER.
