The younger members of the Blog's family are unimpressed by the photo of my sandy toes framing a view of palm trees and turquoise seas, which I thoughtfully but unsuccessfully tried to text them to celebrate the end of their university exams.

Maybe I will suggest it to my friend Terry at the Solvents Industry Association (SIA, now in conjunction with the CBA) for when they are next raising funds for the solvents abuse charity Re-Solv.
