CHAPTER TWO

 MY FRIEND THRUSH

Take for example Thrush -- and no I don't mean the feathered variety. I refer to that elusive itch -- the itch you can't scratch. The bane of women's lives. For you ladies lucky enough to have "escaped" the pleasure of this irritating gynaecological problem, that has the habit of presenting at the most inconvenient of times, lucky you! I say inconvenient but come to think of it when is it convenient to have a bout of Thrush? Try never and you'll be getting close.

In my experience, it has the nasty habit of sneaking up on you when you are on holiday abroad. Let's face it, who wants to try explaining to a foreign chemist in sign language what your problem is? Pointing at your pubic area and scratching in mid air can be very embarrassing and not one of your finest moments.

 

 

CHAPTER THIRTEEN

ON THE MOVE

In the early 80s we ended up in Helsinki, Finland and apart fom the impossible language the weather was cold enough to persuade penguins to emigrate. My mother, keen as ever, had bought a Teach Yourself Finnish book. And very usefully (not) the first phrase was 'He is a priest.' Now I don't know about you but when you are lost or hungry in a foreign country I'm not sure how useful that is. The local residents would probably think you were some kind of nutter rambling on about priests. My mother certainly caused some major confusion the day the removal men arrived to unpack our possessions. At the end of the task she stood there waving her arms saying "Finish, finish?" A distinct look of puzzlement crossed their brows and it was clear they thought the English woman was unhinged. Just as well she didn't try out her phrase book on them.
