This episode is subtitled: ‘That’s told you, Gary…!’
‘I can’t believe I’m finally flying the nest!’ said Jaz excitedly as we pulled up onto the wide drive of the large Victorian semi on Wesley Road.
I see Jaz every day in the same clothes (almost), carrying the same bag, spouting the same anti-consumerism slogans, so I was surprised by just how much stuff we were moving in to her new home. We grabbed a box each and walked up to the front door.
‘Welcome!’ said Ruth, who’d come down to let us in. Jaz had guessed correctly that the middle buzzer was for the flat she was going to be sharing with Ruth. ‘Let me show you round,’ she continued, relieving Jaz of her box, and we headed up a beautiful staircase that swept round onto a big landing. The sturdy Victorian door had had a Yale lock fitted but Ruth had propped it open so we were able to go straight through.
