I'll look out the book sounds interesting but as we boycott the Times I won't be getting that.

thanks all, adam is rather miraculously doing well for now, so we are enjoying the time we have together.

I read Pear Shaped earlier this year and found it incredibly funny and moving. I recommended it to all of my family and friends. I'm so glad to hear that Adam is doing well and wish you all the best for the future.
