In this uncertain world it is wonderful to discover that people can take 30 seconds to send you a congratulatory tweet on the arrival of your first grandchild.
As you may recall, I run two Internet blogs for two UK actors and various people follow them. The blogs are:RUSSELL TOVEY - A STAR IN THE MAKING and CHARLIE CONDOU CONFIDENTIAL.
In the course of a year I have come to know many of the nearly 2000 people who follow my Twitter accounts and here are some of their much appreciated good wishes.
I'm sorry I didn't put every tweet here, these are just the ones that arrived within two days of my granddaughter's arrival 18-8-2011.
