Further and Further Away

"I told my parents I was going to the Grand National... I sent a postcard from London, 'Come up to have a look at London for a few days'. Then I sent a postcard from Paris. So I gradually attuned them to the idea that I was moving further and further away. Eventually they got a postcard from Spain."
