What luxury! My bone china "cat-mug" and my speciality shortbread ginger flavoured biscuit, a cup of excellent Indian tea and the News at Ten on BBC Radio 4 before tucking down into my nice cosy bed: my books and electric light to read by.
What really thrills me is the recent discovery that all white Europeans have at least 2% of Neanderthal DNA! "Neanderthal!" is normally an insult neatly hurled across a field of anger at someone you think is culturally and intellectually inferior. (What a base instinct that is).
However, it's certain that Neanderthals lived about a mile away from where I am typing this. I've always had a soft spot for them. Now I can welcome them in to sit down and chat. "Come in cousin. I'm pleased to see you. Have a look around and feel at home. You've travelled a long way, haven't you! But please do wipe your feet and wash your hands first."
