Please xxx ... and just when the photographer is ready, conjure up in your mind a picture thus:- a green-walled bedroom, a small dark wood bed with a blue eiderdown and a five foot three inch green-eyed blonde in blue silk and lace 'jamas from the man she loves and with the most mischievous twinkle in her eye. ... But always there was a little wall of reserve... and we were never really lovers... but as Fate being kind we intend to belong to each other for good and always...”
