Sorry to use the blog as a personal communication tool! But to all of you who usually contact me on my mobile phone, please don't do so for the time being. As I took my jeans out of the washing machine yesterday, my mobile phone fell out of a pocket with a sad, wet thud. The SIM card has survived, but the phone has joined Osiris, and is no longer of this world. The replacement won't be with me for a week or so (the number will be the same). All the more embarassing given that I worked for Carphone Warehouse for several years and used to hear hard-luck stories about drowned mobiles regularly :-).All the best, Andie.
