The Week of 3 January 1999

Those of you who received our Christmas letter/photos this year (both of you) will have no doubt pondered  my rhetorical question concerning why our boys were now so reluctant to visit home. You will also have seen the photograph of the chores to which they are subjected whenever they are foolish enough to visit.

Recently, we unearthed the following photograph which perhaps explains all....

Adam, aged about seven or eight, being forced to rake the Pernicious Penelope Parsnip's vegetable garden in return for his meagre board and lodging.

Adam, aged about twenty, being compelled to spread 40 cubic metres of mushroom compost for the Pestiferous Penelope Playchute.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose!
