ET moved south hoping for better weather. She was mistaken. It rained just as much there as it had in the north.
However, her living accommodation was now much grander. She had bought a large Georgian house with an extension out the front (albeit it was rather flimsy with its fabric ‘walls’ flapping in the wind, and thus not at all sound-proof). She was also much closer to the sea.
The time that I visited, I spent the afternoon on the pebble beach with MB and my mother. When we returned to the house afterwards it was unclear whether or not we would be charged for our stay.
