My lifestyle is bizarre Lynne. Full of texture and rarely humdrum, although perhaps a bit desperate at times.

When we moved from Germany the movers said that they had never had to move so much junk. A Dutch friend telling an acquaintance about our apartment said it was remarkable but he would not want his dead body found there. Now those we ask to move us to France say you have got a lot of stuff... but not much furniture.  :angel:

No matter I have plenty to keep me busy till the next ones turn up. Hundreds were produced, possibly thousands and most will have survived as they were for collectors.

I have copies if anyone wishes to check anything out, actually there is more info in the Charlton guide in most cases, but the pics are better...
