Quote of the Day

"Er-" said Aunt Lucy, "Selina Gascoigne has gone away for the weekend and I promised that we'd keep an eye on her family-" she had the grace to be slightly apologetic because it had been borne in on her at last that her family didn't much like their next-door neighbours, the Gascoignes, in fact they hated the sight of them, in spite of all that she could say about their being a charming, talented, clever original and gifted family.
This announcement was greeted with rebellious mutterings which swelled into roars of rage and disgust as soon as Aunt Lucy had hurried back to the kitchen to get on with her chores.
