Subject: RE: BS: Forgotten to clean??
As she tells it, shortly after my mother married (1960), her mother-in-law came to call and freely referred to "inspecting" her housekeeping skills. A bit of a battleaxe, my grandma.

After she had gone, my mother found a penny had been left on one of the pelmets in the living room. A pelmet is like a box which covers the top of the curtains.

My mother replaced it with two ha'pennies.
