Two miracles

I experienced two miracles at the weekend:

1/ I went out in the garden to pick some greenery and a branch knocked one of my contact lenses out onto the muddy, leaf-strewn garden. I couldn't find it, but my friend Mally (basket- maker extroadinaire) came outside to look for it and saw it straight away.

2/ My north-facing study is next to the bathroom and Dave has had his eye on it for years. He wants to knock through from the tiniest-bathroom-in-the-world so that it is the second tiniest bathroom-in-the-world. So... we moved my study downstairs and now I have sunshine and space and I love it to bits. I keep sneaking in here and gloating. But my study isn't the miracle.

Dave helped me hang up my pictures exactly as I wanted them in exactly the position I wanted them. My indecision combined with my need for precision drives him up the wall. The miracle is that he helped without moaning.

So this is where I am going to write my international best-seller.

Actually, I think *our* bathroom is the smallest in the world. Your miracles reminded me of this news story, which I thought you'd like:

Ours is smaller than yours (to be said in "nah-nah-nah-nah-nah" voice.) You have a bath, basin, shower and loo. We don't have room for a loo. Will check out the link. xxxx
