My frankly smashing fiancée Jules completed the Cancer Research Race For Life on Sunday, and I am, unsurprisingly, very proud of her.

I know the readers of this blog are generous as well as well-read folks, and so I hope you won’t mind if ask you to click here and sponsor her (it’s after the event, I know, but I can assure you she completed it). All donations welcomed, and the link’s one of those secure ones, so you don’t need to worry that your money will be purloined by miscreants such as a TV company running a phone-in competition or similar. Honest.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and the heart of my bottom.
