  Yes, I’ve heard of it.’

“Is it Italian? ‘Asked Harry who knew nothing about women’s fashion.

“Yes, ‘it is based in Rome, I travel there during the week and fly home at the weekend. Poor Norman is left to run the farm all by himself.’

“One of the crosses I have to bare I’m afraid said Norman.’

They sat chatting until after ten o’clock then Harry said that they had better be heading back.’

They said goodnight and headed for the car.’

“What a nice couple said Susan as she got in and fixed her seat belt.’

“Yes, I hope that Audrey drums up plenty business for me; she seems to be in the know.’

“She will be a multi-millionaire for sure.’ La Vita Notturna is a world renowned brand name.’

“I noticed the big rings on her fingers they must be worth a fair few bob.’

Susan turned right onto the main road and headed back the way they had come.

“Those pearls she was wearing were real too.’

“Norman is a lucky man indeed.’ A woman as rich as her could have any man in the world.’

You must admit though that Norman is a nice bloke.

“Very charming I thought; you can see that he loves Audrey.’

“I hope you’ve enjoyed your day out then Susan?’

“Oh yes, it has been marvellous, I’m sure that we will do it again.’ “So much that I will look forward to next weekend.’  Maybe you can take me to another fishing venue.

“Yes, there are a few good venues in the North East. We could try Milk Hope, or the QE2 in Ashington weather permitting of course.’

One day we will go to Ireland and fish for pike now there’s a good game fish.’

“They look vicious looking things don’t they?’

“They can be aggressive, they have very sharp teeth and can snip a finger off if you’re not careful.

“We use surgical forceps to remove the hooks and wear a chainmail glove just to be on the safe side. “My mate got his arm bitten a couple of years back, he ended up with a few stitches. He tells all the girls he was bitten by a shark. We just sit there laughing because if a shark bit you it would take your arm clean off.’

“Now that is one fish that terrifies me.’

“I think the Peter Benchley book Jaws that was made into a film scared the living daylights out of a lot of people.’ Actually crocodiles and hippopotami are responsible for more attacks on humans than sharks.’
