So I'm writing on Ailz's computer. I've had to reset all my passwords because they were saved on my computer and I'd forgotten what they were.
I hope to live to see a day when the computers of 2020 will seem as quaintly clunky as the manual typewriters and boxy black and white TVs of my youth.
Odi has sent us pictures and a video of Pickles. (In spite of everything they've kept her old name.) She looks sleek and fat and is clearly a general favourite. Even Odi, who has never had a pet before and was resistant to having one now- has fallen in love with her. So that's a satisfactory outcome for all concerned.
