... iPhone and iPad were two of the better sellers apparently, but I went for the more traditional rose. Particularly as I still had a cold, and my sense of smell wasn't particularly good, and Martin didn't seem to have much to say on which one he liked the best. I hope it smells nice post woman flu.
