Although I have both the last chapters of this story available, I was not intending to post for another week or so because I have a house guest arriving today. For those who know of him Papatoad.
Finding myself at a lose-end last evening I posted chapter 3 with the hope I'd be able to get Chapter 4 up today. However our power has been off all day and has only just come back on again. (Yes we had been warned in advance but this silly old bugger forgot about it until everything died this morning.)
Regretfully I now have to leave to collect our guest from the railway station and as he will be using my study/guestroom for the next few days Chapter 4 will have to wait.
I'm sorry I will not be able to reply individually to all those nice emails I've received in the last twenty-four hours. DC
