Sad but true.
Sad but true. Madame Bay''s love affair with the swivel headed, lithium battery powered hoover is over. Finished. Kaput. '' C'est ridique ! Une connerie " she tells me with a degree of passion that one wouldn't expect when discussing hoovers. There then follows a lengthy list of its faults . These seem to boil down to two key issues. 1) - It holds its charge for no more than ten minutes and 2) - it has the vacuuming power of an asthmatic gnat. Her final parting comment " I can't work with it " .
The electrician comes to wire up a light above the table in the small downstairs library. '' No need to bother yourselves. We know where everything is " they say matter of factly. They're gone in less than twenty minutes. Later ' the font ' notices that the light has been installed above the table ( as requested ) but not as you might expect above the centre of the table .
