Sample text

I truly think I’d stab anybody who did that to Charlie. And once I got over the initial shock of finding myself going solo, it worked out fine. My sister Lizzie was great, and her partner Matt offered to have a crack at the male-role-model thing because I went on about it so much: he even offered to buy an electric drill if I thought it would help. Mum and Dad were pretty thrown by it at first, but ended up being very reassuring, and Mum spent hours knitting.

Marvellous. I extend my sympathy to him, and say that my chair does that too, and maybe they have a design fault. Marvellous, marvellous. His face is a wonderful mixture of fury and suspicion. I go upstairs for my meeting with Barney, and run through the arrangements for the porridge shoot.
