Treasure

I've begun to clear out the cupboards in the lobby. They're where my father's toys went to die. I found a tape recorder, a couple of cameras, a heat lamp, a portable wine press...  

I'm always hoping to stumble across treasure. I didn't find the map telling me where the gold was buried but I did find a quarter full bottle of Laphroaig. It was ten years old when my father bought it and now it's over 20.

You know what, I think I'll have a wee dram before I toddle up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire.
