when the wrap is carried out I'm setting

w, h = self.text.wrap(aW,aH)

so the width of the para is w and it's height is w, but because we are rotating
those values are then set into the object's width and height in reverse ie

self.width,self.height = h, w

so if you want the original height of the paragraph in the draw method you need
