The first blind man was the jazz pianist George Shearing.

After repeating this several times (called ‘trials’), the sound was made but no food was given. Fred and Mabel were both patients in a mental hospital. One day as they both walked beside the swimming pool, Mabel jumped into the deep end and sank to the bottom.

Paul swiftly followed my lead, and we convinced the children that some unpleasant person had hacked into his phone. We thought we’d done a good job but it turned out later that they had always had their doubts. Paul got into the car and I wondered if I had picked up the man I loved or a stranger that I didn’t really know.

As a child, I loved sitting on my grandfather’s lap while he read me stories.
