One thought on “more of Gillian’s writing

  1. Hello Gillian, very happy to have discovered your blog. I’m a very slow reader (just need a lot of time to understand and process thoughts etc.), so it will take some time to explore your posts. I have just clicked on ‘Doing Family Photography’ and found that the link is not working. Kind regards, Rosa.
