DEAR CLARE BALDING.......
Dear Clare Balding,
I'm sorry I stopped following you on Twitter last year.
I was reckless & stupid.
I'm also sorry I stopped following Emma Freud and Elly Olroyd.
I now understand how Twitter works, and I realise that you are an important part of the whole experience.
I felt I could cope without you, as long as we had our Ramblings on Radio4 and the odd horse-meet.
You even said 'hi' to me when Luke Wright (the poet, not the cricketer) was with you on Saturday Live.
Our relationship felt consummate.
It was when I topped 200 'Followings' on Twitter that I realised I had gone too far.
I should've unfollowed Frankie Coccoza and The Real Gok Wan, but instead I rejected you, and for this I will be eternally sorry.
I hope you will accept my apology and we can tweep-it-up together again soon.
I have a horse called Albie.
He is very young, and we backed him ourselves.
