I agree, there are some items which you like and value just because they're nice. We even still have a few things which you and Zia gave us, after you'd packed up to leave. Against all odds we managed to get them over here, whether in our pockets or hand-luggage. We drank a toast to you the other night when we had a special malt whisky in the glasses you gave us.
We'd never have left them behind, even if it wasn't very comfortable having them in our pockets while we were trying to sleep on the plane.
I was just saying that it's exciting to do a whole "interior design" job without having to take old furniture into consideration.
Funny you should mention crockery - we've still not bought a "dinner set" - just haven't seen what we want yet. And we used to have so many beautiful things...
