    Now that your aunt has retired

    Now that your aunt has retired, she is planning to leave the town where she has lived all her life, and move to a small cottage out in the country where the nearest neighbour will be half a mile away. You think she's going to feel very lonely and likely to regret the move. You say:

    A) I think I'd find life there a bit too lonely and quiet, but you've always lived in the country, so you know what it's like.
    B) I think it's a splendid idea! You'll have lots of relatives coming to visit you with their children.
    C) Are you sure you aren't making a mistake? Remember, you're used to having people you know around you every day!
    D) I expect the garden will keep you pretty busy.Will you be growing vegetables as well as flowers?
    E) You'll probably find you get lots of visitors! It really is a lovely part of the country.


    I think A, you?
