  • Hi gested43a3 thank you so much for commenting. This is my story, not Eleni. I have to ask Eleni to give her story and see how similar, yet different it is compared to mine.

  • Hi Robyne, Hope I have answered your questions without boring you to tears - the recording is much longer than I had planned, but you gave me quite a few questions to answer.

    If you would like any further information or want any points clarified, please write below here. What I am hoping will happen is that a conversation gets going here based around IDM09. cheers Sarah
