The World's Wife

Well, it turns out that Carol Ann Duffy and her friend Peter Benson thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant recommendation. And as a thank you, my daughter received a beautiful book with some kind and some very funny words from the Poet Laureate.

Mrs Icarus

I'm not the first or the last
to stand on a hillock,
watching the man she married
prove to the world
he's a total, absolute, Grade A pillock


Mrs Darwin

7 April 1852.

Went to the Zoo.
I said to Him -
Something about that Chimpanzee over there reminds me
of you.

- from The World's Wife by Carol Ann Duffy
