    Advice I heard a long time ago, and which I passed on to Orchid Jr:

    There are two things that can get you into significant trouble - your penis and your signature. Be careful where you put them both.

    Tip passed on by husband.
    Want two months of rest over the winter six months after a knee replacement op? Spend a day yomping round the lovely streets of London, then run for the train home. The following day go up the step ladder to put up curtain poles ( be sure to brace yourself with the new knee). Finally practise karate on a piece of unwanted laminate flooring before it goes up to the tip. This will ensure the sharp pain in your knee will keep you mostly in and sitting down until the end of January.

    When you discover a forgotten tin of tomatoes which looks decidedly swollen, whatever you do DON'T cover the lid with a damp cloth when you empty the contents to ensure the tin can go in the recycling. This way the fermenting tomatoes can explode absolutely everywhere, covering you in red spatters and making the room look like a crime scene from an episode of Dexter. The joy of removing bits of tomato from one’s nose, hair, clothing and glasses cannot be described.

    In these difficult times it's lovely to be able to cheer your friends up. Splash Prosecco over your keyboard on a Saturday evening and spend an interesting evening wondering if you can zoom and do online Italian on your phone. In the morning confess to your techie friend what happened and ask advice. If this is 18 hours after your spillage you will find the laptop will spring back to life after you have brought a bit of joy into your friend's day.
