    'Yes, snails - they track you for years and attack you in your sleep.'

    And you wake up with blurred vision. Or is that caused by something else? Cheers!

    (It's gin o' clock here in the hills of Andalusia).

    As my elderly granduncle used to say: 'The sun is always over the yard arm somewhere in the world, darling.'

    I think the original idea was that gin o' clock starts when the sun dips below the yardarm but as a square-rigged ship has several tiers of sails it can be a very flexible concept. Former neighbours of ours here in Al Andalus would start quiz each other ('Isn't it time for a little sundowner, darling?') at about 10.00 am.

    School's who have several heads/principals come and go throughout the year, and still somehow survive, and still somehow recruit staff...

    I bought a hardback copy, and then chuckled through most of a beach holiday a couple of Christmases ago.

    Many thanks, Mermaid and yasf. For the first couple of years after it was published I lived in daily expectation of libel writs from Messrs Sue, Grabbitt and Runne but it appears that the goodies in the book liked it and the baddies either couldn't read or didn't recognise themselves.
