You will recall that we had a very successful house swap last summer (successful for us anyhow, I’m hoping it was successful for the French people also). We are now on this house swap website and people keep offering us their houses. So far we keep saying no as it’s a bit early for us to know what our plans are. Sample conversation.
Mr. Waffle: We don’t want to go to Brighton, do we?
Me: No, I don’t think so.
Herself: Oh Brighton, I must go to Brighton, I shall die, if I don’t go to Brighton.
No more Pride and Prejudice for her.
Please tell me she added ‘A little sea-bathing would set me up forever’
No, I fear not.
