A lady had rung two days earlier to ask if we would take her late mother's collection of cups, saucers, teapots and plates.
"Lovely of you to think of us," I said.
"I'll be honest," she replied, "I'm just going through the 'phone book."
Then today another lady turned up with more plates, cups and saucers.
She asked if we'd happened to find her granddaughter's toy sloth which she'd lost in August.
We had indeed.
We've become quite attached to him.
