In Case of Court
Please send all communications, questions, or offers of support to Lady Deirdre Grenewode. Please feel welcome to surprise me, I get a funny look on my face. ICOP: Please issue a writ. Those around me may explode otherwise. I prefer peerage awards to wait until we can gather together in person and those who care can celebrate in person with me.
