A dear, elderly neighbour has left the area to live nearer to her sons in Oxford, and we miss her!
Because she lived next door, we feel responsible for her cottage, and are keeping an eye on the place for her, until it's sold.
She has generously offered any of her fixtures and fittings for us to have if we want them, and apart from a couple of things, there's not much to want, or take now.
Except a complete set of Charles Dickens...
I must confess to be a bloke who has only ever read one Charles Dickes novel, and have long wondered if I could summon the desire to read them all at some stage. My old business partner did exactly that, and as there are only about fifteen novels, give or take the odd pamphlet, I should really give it a try, shouldn't I?
