Inevitably having moved Neighbourhoo Wat sticker had Miss Marple at the door, showing some disappointment at lack of prominence. Explained other half was less than keen, fell on deaf ears. Tried to smooth things over by inviting her in for tea, duly accepted. Noted suspicious old couple opposite looking out of window again, also noted lack of Neighbourhood Watch sticker and plan revealed itself.
Commented, quite casually you understand, to Miss Marple about suspicious old couple's lack of Neighbourhood Watch sticker, serving dual purpose of showing at least we had a sticker, even if lacking some prominence, and their blatant encouragement of the lawless.
Said she had had her eye on them for some time, also describing them as 'a rum pair'. (Really must ask other half meaning of this.) Said perhaps she could ask them to put a sticker in their window, by way of sussing them out? I thought this a very sneaky and clever move on my part. Luckily Miss Marple agreed, and having finished her tea was out on her assignment
Shook her head as she left looking at my Neighbourhoo Wat.
