      (((Saskia))) you will love the book! Chatting on the phone to my best girlfriend Julie who has known me since we were 21 years old, I said, “I reckon we are all allowed to make at least one folly in this lifetime” and she said, “Mo you have made plenty already!” …my whole life has been an absurd folly in many ways but it’s been worth it for the laughs!
