The funniest thing about it is that the councillor's house isn't very big at all, and it's certainly not in the country.

I'm 6' and my wife is 5'5". I could go up to about 5'8", but prefer the height difference, especially when she sticks her heels on and is probably at the 5'8" level. She prefers a taller man too.

The pic makes me laugh though as it looks doctored. I thought she was 6'9" not 6'2". The guys must be hobbits, they are well over a foot shorter. :lol:

But it's not my family home, which I own. I'm here as the Management's children were at Oundle school when we got together and I wanted to ensure they were near their mum.

So I moved here. We have no reason to live in a mansion now. Kiddiwinks have fled the coop and both are married and settled. I love it here. Biggish fish in a small pond. Life quality excellent.

Difficult bit is that the MIL might move here. Sheesh.

You arrange the funeral
You pronounce them dead
You feed, clothe and house them in adulthood
You see to their every whim in life in general (only meeeee!)
You design their wedding

No.

I don't "design" weddings. If it's in church I do the service sheet. Funeral directors are not brilliant at this. I have a chat with the bride and groom then, with the vicar, put together a programme, which I design and have printed.

As an ex chorister and someone who uses Adobe CS6 to produce a full colour result with all the trimmings, including hymn detail of the writer and the music.

"Nottingham" (a funeral hymn) was scored by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) is an example.

Sarah is actually a judge at Crufts, so not a "he". Their house is festooned with ribands.

Her husband is/was a rugby player and is the nicest you can meet.

They sadly sold their house next to Sibson airfield (she had a plane) just up the road and moved into the Fens.

Her dog clipping skills are to be admired. Her husband likes a pint or two, but they stay over.
