To paraphrase one of the best newspaper headlines ever; Molly and I are… OFF TO PATTERDALE.**
By the time we were packed and ready to roll the sun was out and promising to provide yet another glorious day.

‘VIVIAN FUCHS OFF TO ANTARCTICA.’
I was reminded because the other day I posted ‘already’ instead of ‘all ready’. Nice to know I'm in good, if not literate, company. If I carry on like this you are reading Jeffrey Archer’s successor. An editor proof lack of grammar has not dented his popularity.
