Thank you! I really wanted to do something special for this one, that people could be excited about. To be honest, this wasn't exactly my original plan, but I really like the way things turned out anyway!

Well done Chrissy!

 

Also I can't believe it's already been a year since you took over Hayley. I can't imagine the amount of time and effort that must go into this forum - thank you for your dedication. This is one of the few forums I check up on regularly. The people are always so engaging to talk to and I always feel like I'm learning something new about the world of literature.

Thanks @Angury, that was really nice to read. Thank you for continuing to use the forum and being part of what makes it such a lovely place! The last year has gone really fast, I'm glad we're all still here :).
