Amanda Upon The Verandah 1


Amanda, standing like a standard, upon the verandah (flapping about a lot in the breeze of a conversation about the restoration and conservation of Restoration conservatories) lost the plot – along with her floppy-brimmed hat – and, as it was rather hot, she decided to faint upon the grass – which meant a little stroll before that place was reached.
“I feel faint!” she cried limply; and fell to the cushioning surface.
Sadly, everybody else had gone back into the house to grab a quick drinkie before tea.
Amanda surreptitiously glanced around.
“Bother! I shall have to put that one down to bad planning.” and, climbing to her feet, she toddled off after the others to empty a few cut-glass decanters.
