She wasn’t called Dizzy Lizzie for nothing. Some said she couldn’t organize a tea party in her own vicarage.
So when the news broke that she had given a ‘Congratulations’ card to Mrs. Quinn next door following the sudden passing of Mr. Quinn, nobody was surprised.
Only Lizzie, who spent her spare time gardening and listening to the rows, knew how Mr. Quinn had fallen from his ladder.
Lizzie’s own downfall was to suggest that Mrs. Quinn’s sins would be forgiven on payment of a suitable monetary donation.
Instead, Mrs. Quinn found a new home for Lizzie in her own graveyard.
