It's mid-morning, hot and we are on our first day of house-hunting. There is a place to rent nearby. It's not in the area that we want and it's large and therefore probably too expensive but we have to start some where.
None of the homes we are shown are what we're after. Naturally they are disappointed but in a cheerful sort of way. Later that day, whilst peering through another gate, we meet another man, who knew someone who knew someone that could find us a place. We see him tomorrow.
