I may have mentioned before that Sheila and Theo had considered a more intimate relationship, in the early days of their being in the house, but neither was quite ready for it. Like all good friends, they still love each other and, as Sheila has already pointed out, a chaste snog is an expression of fondness and warmth. Would that such an attitude were more universal. Not that I’m hinting about for such things…     *clears throat nervously*
