Dear So and So,
I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, I really like this as an idea. Once, I’ve started I may not be able to stop. Just warning you.
Ps. pop over to 3bedroombungalow I think you’ll find lots to interest you
I am not sure if you are aware but I am not a big fan of Margaret Thatcher. However, I understand that she could get by on 4 or 5 hours sleep a night. I would very much like this ability and I wonder if together we could adapt. Currently I seem to need 8 or more. The problem I have is short evenings and an early rising 3 year old. If I could get by on less sleep it would enable me to get more done and feel less tired at the same time. This I think could be a winning combination.
I do hope you will give my letter careful consideration, and I look forward to your early reply.
This is a difficult letter to write, I feel things have changed between us. We used to spend long hours together, there was so much to do and so many hours to do it in.
Maybe its me, not you. But one of us has changed, it’s not the same anymore, you seem to be less attentive, less available, just around less. I am constantly wondering where you went.
I know you feel that the 3 year old, work and sleep gets in the way, and I feel that too but hey, I need the first two and I am trying to reduce things with sleep. I’d love it if we could work something out, would you be prepared to influence a lottery win? That would take care of work. Please, think about it. You know where I am.

Ps. did i fool you?
The ring fence from my funding pot has been removed. This means that money that could be spent on vulnerable people, people at risk, the poor and the marginalized can now be spent on bin collections and pot holes, important to some and a vote winner for others, but by comparison as important? This pot of money for supporting the vulnerable has been reduced further by Cuts to Local Authority Budgets. Just wanted to say that projects like the one I work for haven’t been lavished with funding over the last few years, quite the opposite, all the funders want is more for less. Front line services are struggling, it can only get worse.
Please think about your priorities, and read again that letter that 90 Liberal Democrats and think on.
Yours sincerely, Ms Bee in her Bonnet
