For us her friends, she is a rock: I have called her in the middle of the night to ask her to do me a favour. "Are you asleep?" I asked. "Yes," she said. "Well wake up and grab a pen because this is important – I am boarding a plane shortly and you can't forget to do this." Such are the demands you can make on a true pal, who has made it one of her favourite stories! Happy Birthday and congratulations, my beautiful friend Val!
