I was certainly not looking for a relationship at the time, and even more certainly not with someone nine and a half years younger than myself. Chris already had O-level Russian, but I was doing the language from scratch. It was not long before the group realised that Chris was very good at Russian. I marked him out as a possible for helping with ‘homework’ when I became stuck, which I was sure would happen – unlike Chris, I am not a natural linguist. I remember that after the lesson in which Chris first shone, I approached him and congratulated him on his accent and relative fluency – relative to my painful syllable by syllable torturing of this beautiful language.

As an aside, I have often found that alcohol, in moderation of course, helps to loosen a few social inhibitions, although I think in excess it just makes me loudmouthed and uninteresting. ) Now that I can look back, not only with hindsight again, but also over a distance of several years, it seems remarkable that I felt both that I had improving prospects and that I managed to forget about how things seemed to start going especially wrong after I left school.
