tessakavanagh I'd have happily welcomed these guys into the house.. they'd have had names & homes in no time.. most probably all in a group amongst many years of dripping white wax candles.. on location last week, or the week before!! with @mroper 1d

tessakavanagh Could definately dwell here.. the vision - id be returning home with a brown box of market goodies, gumboot clad, 2 weimaraners would jump from the back of a dark green defender and we'd all go inside to greet jack, the open fire and a pot of bubbling coffee. The sofas would be low and tweed, the fire would crackle, and it would snow near the doorstep. But actually back in the real world it was @mroper and I making up a whole different story.. 1d
