Introduction I never intended to marry an accountant. I never intended to live in England. So quite how I managed to be dragged up to the coldest, greyest, rainiest part of the country in the midst of babies, builders and a black depression is a mystery which I’m still trying to fathom. My question is this: does the southerner become a northerner; do you ever go back south? And do you rebel from a life in the wake of a husband’s career, or do you stick with it, for better or worse? Only time will tell...

Which is easier to make a model airplane out of and why: a banana peel or a wet sock?

Doh, banana peel of course. Isn't that obvious?
