Cedric was fretting in his shop. He had got carried away in the auction house and bid very highly on some brown furniture items.
In the cold light of reality, he realised that it was going to be extremely hard to recover his money on re-sale.The funds of most families could not be squandered on such profiteering. There could be a big four figure gap in his bank balance....he certainly wouldn't be able to afford a hairdresser at this rate. Would he have to purchase a trilby to cover up those naughty little roots?

Brooksey - it actually got sold last week as it just didn't fit in anywhere and as such a "Period Piece" I felt that it was best left untampered with. I had had it for ages and it never found a place.

If the bridesmaids don't rescue him, is he able to do a bit of creative re-painting?

If he can't afford a hairdresser, I don't suppose he's even got enough funds for a decent hat - he'll have to buy secondhand!

(I really like that mid-century sideboard - what a pity it is I haven't got a suitable house for it! All my 1960s-set houses are 1:16).

Indeed Cedric has an unfortunate tendency to "blow hot" and then suddenly "blow cold" which has alienated him from many former acquaintances, including his sister. It will be interesting to see how their relationship fares within the narrow confines of the village. He would be more than foolish to fall out with the Bridesmaids. They have an appetite for some styles of furniture which would be spurned by some of the wealthier Grecons living locally and the mere thought of his roots should perhaps halt him in his tracks should he feel an urge to be inexplicably rude to them.

The bridesmaids are keen on this type of furniture.

Silly man - do you think he might be a sandwich short of a picnic?

I am sure the bridesmaids will help him out with the roots again if needs be - unless he has been rude to them and alienated them....
