Makes you realise what alcoholics and those addicted to illegal substances go through. When abroad I have been reduced to reading Agatha Christie in German with the aid of a dictionary. (I did do 6 weeks of a German course and I had read the book in English). I also borrowed my french penfriend's copy of a translation of Oliver Twist because I'd read all the English books I had brought with me twice and was really suffering from text deprivation. I can cope without OW when away from home but my fingers get twitchy when I'm back again.

Glad all is well.

When your aunt has one clue left to complete her crossword, and the answer is 'abeam' you can't imagine why she didn't know it  ;D
When the clue is Fox Islands native and you quickly realize that the answer is Aleut ;D
