    Hay Zoe, nobody around here considers your antics to be crazy at all, everyone took it very seriously and plans may have been hatched – though for me the thought of unpacking the bookshelves left me feeling somewhat week at the knees. You are braver than I am what can I say. I hope you all have the best week!!!
