Hello treacle,

Tis me Shanga. I’m writing to thank everyone that supported ‘The Wootton Project’ at the Drill Hall earlier this year. Also, I thought I should let anyone half interested know that as a result of the show those nice people at the BBC have commissioned a six part series due to air next year. It’s going to be reasonably funny with a couple of funnier bits in it to spice things up. I’d also like to send warm wishes to the nice lady what runs this blog spot thing. I like it. Well I would wouldn’t I? It’s all about me. Anyway – big monkey face licks to that Lady girl.

I miss you.
