Marianne considered all this as she stumbled along.
"A yacht!" Coming from a land-bound country , the sea was a novelty to Trans-Ruro-Austri-Grecons. The only sailing that she had done had been on the Lake Wertersee in a rather Swallows and Amazons' fashion. She wondered if Thomas would allow her one. She had better be a bit nicer to him for sure. She realised that she had been quite waspish to him since the wedding. Such a glamorous and exciting lead up - and then ppht.... I bet a lot of brides think the same - "a lot of sound and fury" and then not a lot. Well, actually quite a lot - the Mouse Skin Fortune was not to be sneezed at, and the wedding HAD been fun- all those old friends arriving from the North - she hadn't heard much from them since then. How was Ophelia and her new garden,- and Rabbi - handsome fellow- he seemed to have a yen for some air hostess.... She realised that they were nearing the farmhouse and a plume of untidy smoke arose from one of the chimneys. It had also started to rain quite heavily - one of the few times that an umbrella would have been really useful.

Love the coat, though Dare I say it's a little on the frumpy side Marianne?

Ophelia is enjoying her garden immensely and seems to get far better weather in I that I get in mine. No change on the Rabbie front, he's still resigned to being overlooked by his misguidedly love-struck air hostess. I recently heard rumours of a dinner party or soirée in the offing so maybe we'll be hearing more soon...

A yacht? Well, she has got big ideas, better play the sweet little wifey when Sir Thomas returns!
