I woke up this morning with a strong craving for liquorice. I staggered out of bed at 6am quickly putting on yesterday's clothes, got into the car and drove to the all night garage, just for a bag of Liquorice Creams. My maid Carmen was baffled by my early morning saturnalia. Why Liquorice? she asked, when I told her about the craving she said, and with a serious face "I hope you're not pregnant."
