Dear Theo and all - a question about references and a quick one about the E.S

    Q1 I would leave out things that are too personal, unless you can say something like: parents wrote to thank me for being supportive to their son.
    Q2 Once someone has written a reference for you, it's dead easy to write another - just get it off the computer. It's writing it the first time that's hard. So don't worry about over-doing it. They would appreciate a Thank-You from you,mind - a nice card saying that you really appreciate the support that they are giving you, and you hope soon to be successful.
    Q2.5 Yes, that would be better, as it would refer to MFL.
    Best wishes
