I was unwise enough to write

to appear in Chapter 4 -

Here I am having an ill day and you all choose
this as the time to start being terribly witty at
my expense, it's just not fair- air. Listen up I
am not going to marry any kind of bricks, mortar,
plasterwork, dados, skirting boards, lintels or
windowsills, not concrete or wooden sidings or

cottage or indeed a hovel. It could have murals,
frescos or bas reliefs but the answer is still a

iron age roundhouse, a neolithic long house nor
even a Minoan style palace, though it may have
not one but three terraces, royal apartments,
sweeping stone staircases, processional ways and
the most stupendous views of Mount Ida you can
imagine. I AM NOT CELEBARATING ANY KIND OF UNION
WITH ANY KIND OF SODDING BUILDING, OKAY? Besides
my heart is promised to a Garden. (Have I ever
mentioned how much I love A Civil Campaign?
