Hi Kate - at the risk of being totally condesending - my jaw dropped to the floor to read that you are 17. Thats not to say you are not capable of supporting to your sister - which you clearly are.

Late night ramble!

Hi Girls This side of the board has been a bit quiet lately - but from your posts it seems you are all trying to utilise the adrenaline of a New Year to make plans, look forward and generally stop this merry go round getting you down.
