Reading so you don’t have to

Best Beloved is determined that I will one day write a bonkbuster filled with politics, diplomacy and intrigue and sex. She will feed me snippets gleaned from her time as an au pair to a diplomatic family in Saudi, where the shenanigans and goings-on would not meet with approval of the mutaween (which is a pretty good reason for doing anything) and we will retire on the proceeds.
Therefore, strictly for research, I must report that the next title on my reading list is Edwina Currie’s A Parliamentary Affair. There, I said it. A report may or may not be following. Likewise the proposed bonkbuster.
Now off for a week for our annual Sweden pilgrimage where Internet connectivity will almost certainly not be forthcoming. To fill the void in your lives, here are some things you probably didn’t know about me. Why not look yourself up too? You may be pleasantly surprised.
