My darling Kay, I’m just in the middle of writing a fairy story, about a young knight “whose judgement left much to be desired” and a precious stone (or jewel) which turned into a beautiful maiden “who simply radiated love and warmth”. It’s not a long story but it’s more or less to the point. It’ll have its first private reading in bed, when we’ve time.

Your, Peter.
