Wild passionate sex… did not feature.  It was a friend’s birthday drinks.

‘You’ll never guess who was there!’ I say. Andrew Maclean!’

My first real – in every sense of the word – boyfriend.

‘It was fine actually.  As in – we chatted a bit – but – well – I can’t help feeling, with an ex, there’s always an element of competition…’

‘What’s he doing now?’

‘He’s a management consultant!’ I say, laughing.  ‘So – yeah – not really a competition!’

‘I was going to say…’

Thank you Mother.
