Present! Yes, I am here.
As a child, the adults sometimes used to say 'she's fighting the battle of the bulge'. I knew it meant that someone was slightly chubby and probably didn't eat biscuits. I didn't realise that the Second World War battle was so close in their memories.
So here I am, fighting the battle of the bulge. I am slightly chubby and I don't eat biscuits. Funny how the world goes round.
