Later that day, Rabbie and Joyce had their first look around Rabbie's new property, Agar Hall.
"Oh my goodness, Rabbie, it's so grand but it needs so much work doing to it too," said Joyce with a worried frown. "Aye, my sweet, there's nae denying it does tha' but with you by ma side, we'll dee it nae problem." "And what about the GASP aspect," continued Joyce, "that will mean a whole new career for us both." "Aye, a different kind of hostess from noo on lass, you'll be fine, we'll both be fine," reassured Rabbie and they looked at each other and smiled. The future looked bright and the truth was they were both looking forward to it immensely. "Now, I'll need to get on to that restoration wallpaper man and see if we can't get cracking soon," said Joyce happily, "and none of the furniture in my house will do for here so we'll need to go to some auctions," she really was bringing to warm to the whole idea.

Resourceful and willing to turn a blind eye - one false door and the world's your oyster, Brooksey! LOL (Actually, it might be more of a GASP day centre!)

When Ketterley was only the 81, I had a trompe l'oeuil corridor at the back of the hall and another off the half landing to suggest as many rooms as were necessary in the "rest of the house". This visual trickery was going to include the kitchen and bathrooms. Happily, I've been able to indulge myself with these since the (still incredible) arrival of the 82. (Well, I will when the "bridging building" arrives to link the two houses - that's where the family's bathroom is to be sited. Sam hasn't had time to construct the building, yet).

The wallpaper man is waiting on the printer, Rabbie. The Printer man is very slow apparently.

Ah, I see, Rabbie thanks you for that update, Valerie!

With having to accommodate all those resting and recuperating servicemen, plus the Queen when she visits, Rabbie and Joyce will be lucky if they end up with the two attic rooms as a flat! I can't wait to see how this will work out. (Presumably, it will be a piece of cake for the extremely resourceful HB who can fit a hair salon, plus a (very) full household, into a 53!).
