There are some real advantages in having young children to take away on holiday with you – priority boarding on the plane, an excuse to go on waterslides, being allowed to squeal out loud with delight when you spot a crab – but travelling a deux without juvenile accessories does have its upsides, too.

I’m not brilliant at remembering what temperature different things should be, which is why, if my husband takes a thermometer out of his mouth, shivers violently, wipes the sweat from his brow and says “aaah… 40.3 ….” he might as well be reciting limericks in Urdu for all the sense it makes to me.

I refer to the article on Chippenham RFC seeking permission from the Rugby Football Union to allow their second team to be promoted to Southern Counties (level seven of the RFU league structure) should they finish top of Dorset & Wilts 1 North (level eight), (Gazette & Herald, February 28). The most interesting aspect of the article was actually what was not said by the club’s representative or was not mentioned. − Colin Brockhurst, CorshamSet up reserve league »
A newsletter hit my doormat on March 2 from ‘Nick Watts and the Lib Dem team’ headlined: Freeze Wilts council tax say Lib Dems. This document goes on to tell us that: “hard-working families cannot afford unnecessary council tax hikes in these difficult times” and so “Nick Watts and the Liberal Democrats have promised not to support any attempt by Wiltshire Conservatives to hit families by increasing council tax this year”. − Peter Kemp, ChippenhamDon't believe claims »
