I forgot to mention this
Christian telephoned a couple of evenings ago, full of enthusiasm. He’s decided he’d like to move to Manchester. Manchester??? He thinks he stands a better chance of getting a full job with the travel agents if he moves north. He’s even got somewhere to live lined up. He thought I didn’t sound too pleased. It wasn’t that. I need at least 48 hours to get used to a new idea. After all he’s still my baby really.
He was amazed that I knew that there is an excellent Chinese supermarket there. (I’m still full of surprises)
He hasn’t started driving lessons yet. He didn’t know that in England you need a provisional license to learn to drive.
