The “waterworks incident” perhaps requires a few extra words of explanation for those of you who do not know Christine. Stephen knew that she was feeling tired when we arrived at the campsite but was surprised that she was so far gone as to burst into tears as she is an arch feminist and not a “girlie girl”. He was even more stunned to find that it was largely an act as he cannot recall her playimg the damsel in distress before in more than 32 years together! She is just delighted that she can still surprise him!!
