A little taster from the Feb/Mar issue of Home Swappers Newsletter due out next week:
'.... The final twist in the tale came when we tried to access the answering machine (this was some years ago, and we weren't au fait with the complicated monster). We fiddled around, as there were no instructions, to no avail. As the exchanger had said he would be able to access it from GB, we felt it shouldn't be beyond us. It was!! This really was the last straw and we sat in the kitchen having a monumental moan. Of course, we had no idea that our interference with the machine had left its tape recording OUR conversation!!!! Can imagine the householder's chagrin when he learnt his home was "Like the worst student house. Who would have a poster of Che Guevara on his living room wall except an overgrown hippie?" No, neither could we!!!'
... until next week! Read previous issues and/or subscribe to Home Swappers Newsletter.
