Day 239

Mrs Payne still banging away in garage, went to see what destruction had occurred, at which found fearful mess of paint tins on floor, evidently having fallen over.  Most annoyed at this as had carefully stacked them.  Mrs Payne explaining with surprise,
"These paint tins just fell over!  They were terribly stacked!"

Having stacked paint tins with some annoyance, bound to say looked rather carefully at work bench to see what Mrs Payne was making, as was awfully curious.  This altogether impossible as Mrs Payne exclaimed,
"Don't spoil the surprise!" and carefully laid her tiny handkerchief over the items.  Have judged them rather small.  Mrs Payne explained were a fearful lot of work.  Looked over work bench, covered in quantity of tools, carelessly cast aside.  Said I was sure it was, queried was it altogether necessary to use a hammer-drill?  At this Mrs Payne said earnestly,
"Oh yes!  What if one wants to hammer and drill at the same time?"

Quite ignoring this, came out with it that had not the faintest idea what to get for Christmas.  Thankfully Mrs Payne altogether unconcerned with this, thought rather carefully as one might if given a crossword clue, after which said brightly,
"I say, I should like some tins of turkey mince like last year!"
Had to check myself from mentioning existing tins in cupboards, at which I said carefully,
"Oh yes, I suppose I could get you a couple of tins."

Went to get some tea and retrieve tins of turkey mince from kitchen as Mrs Payne exclaimed in delight,
"We haven't had turkey mince for an age!  What a treat!"
