But the ever-selfless Grimsdyke resolves to put the desires of others (and in particular his rather career-minded cousin) before his own, and settle down and make the best of it.

In short, nothing I could evolve by ten-thirty prevented the pair of us being ushered by Ma Wattle into my room, with two hot-water bottles in the double bed. ‘You dirty little stinker!’ started Petunia, as soon as the door was shut. ‘This is the meanest and nastiest trick – !’ ‘For Lord’s sake don’t make so much noise! We’re supposed to be a devoted couple.’ ‘I’d like you to understand, Dr
