As I told you last week she’s retired from the library service in the Dublin or Kildare area and has settled here in the village. She has plenty of time on her hands and, from what I can see, uses most of it trying to predict my movements on a daily basis. She is very successful in her endeavours, because she manages to turn up everywhere I feature, often even arriving before me.

Last week, Todd at the Depot said that she must have spent most of her library days perusing the Mills and Boon publications, but I reckon she spent them in the private-eye section: I’m beginning to think she has my phone tapped.
