Conversation on the Eurostar to Brussels between husband and wife:

Him: Our train’s slowing down.
Her (reading from the paper): Social stereotypes, social assets – dogs.
Him: Ashford, do we stop at Ashford?
Her: Ours is, ours is our social asset.
Him: Really…. our train’s slowing down now.

    What on earth are you doing? It is currently 16.37 on Sunday evening and we are sitting having had dinner with Ma & Pa. Roast port, preceded by celery & blue cheese soup, followed by apple pie and custard. Your mother looks well and your dad is amused by your latest entry re German lady. I hope you are not trying to escape creditors!!! Very best of luck. Will keep checking blog to see how you’re getting on.
