Once in a while, everyone gets a nice surprise. Today, it was my turn. Just before I left for work this morning, a plain white envelope, the same as any other, came through my letterbox. Inside, I expected another bill, bank statement or irrelevant junk mail. Instead, the letter was from the solicitor assigned to manage my Gran's estate. She died in April. A very thoughtful lady with a talent for baking and remembering minute details. Although she didn't have much money, she left me £1000. What a wonderful gift. I'd happily pay 100 times more to have her back.
