A Few Words of Explanation

In answer to a couple of the questions that were posted in comments to my Ten Things You Did Not Know About Me.

I swam in industrial waste in the summer of 1997 while on holiday in Iceland. The salt-water in the blue lagoon is used to heat freshwater for central heating and electricity generation. Once used in this way, the water is used as a health spa. I know that the image of industrial waste is generally one of foul chemicals, but this is still the left-over by product of an industrial process.

My father was working on ghosting an auto-biography of Svetlana Iosifovna Alliluyeva, the daughter of Stalin, whilst she was living in Cambridge in the early 1980s and she came to stay for a couple of days.
