Letters To Ellanor


Occasionally, it has helped me to write directly to my daughter.

Have you ever written to your child? How was it for you? Feel free to leave a comment on this page.

Seven, Ellanor. Seven!  January 12, 2011




  1. Kirrily,
    Great blog. I am Olivia Collette from linked-solutions.com where I work as an editor.
    I was hoping I could publish something on kirrilywhatman.com. I have several ideas which could fit well:
    1. Trips that both parents and kids enjoy
    2. How eating out with the family can be a great event for all
    3. The importance of taking time for ourselves in order to relax and regain strength
    Within the post I would like to include a reference to my client who offers daily deals. For putting the post online you will receive a remuneration.
    I look forward to hearing your feedback.

    1. Wow. What an exceptionally good example of a spammer who hasn’t really bothered to check the blog they’ve landed on. Congratulations, “Olivia”, your pitch on a page about letters to my dead daughter is amazing. Doesn’t really endear anybody to the company you represent…. And er, no. Thanks anyway.
