People often ask me, "Richard, where did you get your sophisticated sense of humour?"
I believe the following snippet from a post card I received this morning from my mum, who is on holiday with my dad and sister, goes some way to answering that question:
Greetings from Anglesey again. Weather not too bad, lots of wind, especially from Gill's direction.
That's my mum!
(I'm her favourite child, you know.)
