If there is a remote chance that you read this blog ( sadly not as entertaining as that other one written with the benefit of cancer) -  I have an urgent and desperate message for you. Sorry to be so public about this request but i have no other means of contact and I hope the disguised version of your name is sufficient to minimise the distress that this difficult and direct request will no doubt cause. Could I please have the recipe for your mum’s garam masala powder??? I have had that stuff for 8 years now…and I am about to run out of it.  You could post the recipe for the world to see in the comments box or you can use the contact page to send me the instructions. Gracias companera.
