1965, the year that changed my life
Holiday in Scarborough — Day One

 2. Any hopes that Chris and I had for a change in the girls’ attitude — “Perhaps they’re just tired; perhaps they just need time to settle in” — were quickly disappointed. But Mary, I noticed, had constant access to their friendship and attention. I got the notion that Mary was working to put Pam off me; and back in the chalet, my consequent feeling of loathing for her expressed itself in an enraged outburst to Chris and Peter. “I know it’s un-Christian,” I said between clenched teeth, “but I hate that woman!”
