My very clever mother-in-law, who was the editor of the Sound Telegraph when I started writing the Balancing Act column, suggested I scan my old columns rather than risk RSI and type them all. Not only is she clever, but a very special, wise person. Before Blue Eyes (her son) and I met, she gave me a chance at the newspaper – I was an unknown: a university graduate and children’s curriculum writer with no newspaper experience. Luckily, I am a quick learner.

Sadly, I am not as good at 14-year-old boy grunt-speak. That story is for another day.
