I had been waiting

More than seven years after her death, my mothers house has sold. A new family has moved in.

I found, in the end that there were only a few things from the house that I wanted. I was content to let most of the contents go for sale.

The clock arrived today, padded on the outside but with the weights loose inside. What kind of maniac ships a clock that way?

Also the pendulum chain is missing. So I cannot wind it up and make it go. It will have to go to the clock hospital first.

When I wrote about the clock of Horatio's childhood it was this one I had in mind.

I am also expecting an armchair in the next few days. That, and some books were all I wanted.
