Over the sound of the vacuum cleaner, the Gorse Fox realised the phone was ringing. It was Cousteau-cub calling from Thailand. It's always nice to hear from her; this time more than most. She was calling to us that she and the Coventry-Hobbit had got engaged yesterday.
This was just wonderful news. They plan to have quiet wedding on the beach some time, yet to be determined.
Now that has brightened up the whole year. C-c deserves a good partner, and the Coventry-Hobbit has proved himself over the past few years. We will be happy to have him as part of the family.
