Yes. Exactly. Both Catherine and her sister Teresa are actually quite good-looking in an annoyingly perfect kind of way, but they ruin the whole thing by standing in ballet poses and clasping their hands together and looking as though they're about to burst into song. Holly and I look like a pair of baby elephants charging about next to them. And they are always dressed beautifully. They never seem to make any shopping boobs. Their jumpers always sit perfectly on them, none of their clothes are ever creased (maybe because they wouldn't dare to) and their tights never ladder.

It was such a brilliant idea that one week later I found myself on a plane to Singapore.
