:-D I think that's good news!

Little Ada is 8 months old now. I suspect you may be able to guess the
inspiration for her name. First (and I plan, only) child at 51 has
been quite a shock to the system.

Some years ago I think I managed to identify who it really is but have forgotten now. 'His/Her' satirical/sarcastic sense of humour is right up my street. This is one of my favourite articles:

As it happens, yes, I do, although I've only met them once in real
