"An account of their first year...a year of gruelling hard work, endless tribulations but - of course - great fun and enormous intangible rewards." - Sunday Times. When her husband became Houseman at the National Trust House of Felbrigg Hall in Norfolk, Mary Mackie became assistant Drain-Clearer, Doorbell-Answerer, Flower Arranger and Rodent Exterminator; she was endlessly making visitors welcome, and arranging concerts and dinners. Leavening all the hard work, were the exciting discoveries of hidden staircases, treasures in the attic, and the certainty that life would never be dull again.
