Incidentally, meirion, you can blame me for the (obviously unwelcome) phone call from sion_a after you'd stormed off, too -- I suggested that he might want to try to patch things up with you. He wouldn't have bothered otherwise.
(See, I'm seriously running out of energy. So from now on I'm not going to try to keep sion_a's relationships going as well as my own. Which means, for a start, no more reminders every single Tuesday to phone/email simonb.)
