Earlier this morning Ann called me into the garden, where the washing was blowing briskly in the sun. "Isn't that a lovely sight?" she said. It was . It didn't feel a bit like February.
About ten minutes or so later Ann called me back into the garden.
"Isn't that a tragic sight?" she said.
"Partridges!" we both said. Partridges is our old established (1829) hardware shop in town. Ann's just come back from town with the good news that Partridges did in fact have a similar replacement washing line in stock. Must go upstairs and effect the necessary replacement.
Went upstairs and Ann had already done the necessary replacement. Should have known!
