Thank you for all the messages about Sooty. I'll try and reply to the ones with an email address later (am meant to be heading for station to get the train to London!)
But, I've just heard this on today's Woman's Hour. It's about a woman with breast cancer who decided she needed a diversion and ended up breeding alpacas... There's "listen again" in the right hand sidebar and it's the Thursday programme, about 20/25 minutes into it?
