Hello, Matilda and Dim look smart. I wonder if they have a Valentine’s date planned? Matilda is fussing over Dim’s tie being straight, so it must be quite important.
I wonder why she’s taking all that paperwork in her handbag.
Oh! They’ve come to see Bernard at the bank. Matilda’s a bit surprised he’s not in a suit, but he says it’s Dress Down Friday.
So, he’s looking carefully at all the bank statements and things she’s brought.
What’s this, a big form to fill in? Oh my goodness, they’re applying for a mortgage!
It takes ages to fill the form in, and then Bernard has to go over the figures carefully.
He’s delighted to say they are approved! They thank him very much, and now they have to go off to another appointment…
A viewing! The place looks alright from the outside as they wait for the estate agent. Ah, here he is…
It’s Compact and Bijou, according to the agent. They make sure they have a good look around. It’s a bit grubby in places, but they can work on that.
So they whisper between themselves for a bit… and they’ll take it!
So while the agent adjusts the sign, Matilda takes the key. And Dim says he has a perfect keyring for it.
