- The rather posh office of our new house agent is a few steps up from the post office so I popped in to make the acquaintance of the two very nice young women who will be front-ending our sale.
- I'd have gone back to bed if I could - I had a lousy night - but the new house agent was due to come to talk to us this morning so I had to prop my eyelids up and do the best I could.
