Did manage to finish chapter 14 of the fic, though, and have sent it post haste to my super-efficient beta, bogwitch
MWNN has gone off to collect the car, so we may well be on the road to Italy if the wearther here doesn't buck up soon. I quite fqncy spending my birthday in Italy this year. At least I'd get a decent cappucino there.
ETA 3.20pm Chapter 13 of FAMILY is now up at FanficNet. Thanks a million bogwitch.
