Telephoned council and explained about mistake regards visit. This taken most reasonably, said they would visit again shortly. Very pleased with this.
Positively furious however at breakfast this morning to find bag of rubbish thrown over fence by builders! Went outside to give some rather sharp words and found for once builders altogether absent. As such promptly threw bag back over fence and stormed into house.
Mrs Payne altogether disinterested in this over breakfast, and asking the matter explained she had got a bit of cheese stuck in ear. Thought this positively frightful, said to watch out for any nearby mice. Mrs Payne quivered at this, held her ear and looked around with worry.
