Heart, lippy and Fenella at 30.

1. Sun at a low angle reflects off a puddle in the drive and makes a shining heart on the garage wall.

2. Andy is at work in the kitchen when we arrive. I ask if the lipstick is part of his costume for Fenella de Ville's 30th birthday party. He smiles and says: 'It's the weekend.' Later he reappears as an unwilling dalmatian in a furry suit.

3. When the time comes to cut the wonderful chocolate cake, Fenella is swaying slightly, but as proud and as happy as any woman should be at the age of 30.
