As village life is quietly dull and the days are short, we are taking time to endlessly potter and enjoy our newly procured lives as decadent dossers. Daily activities are stretched to breaking point to fill the available time. The expensive entertainment system we extravagantly bought on our minimum wage is paying dividends.
