Matthew wasn’t exactly superstitious but he did believe in omens.
The day that he was to be wed is a case in point.
That morning, his alarm clock didn’t go off so he got up an hour late. Then the boiler went on the blink in the middle of his shower. Finally after getting through his ablutions and dressing, he had breakfast and went to pull the car out of the garage – a flat tire!
He changed the tire feeling anxious.
When he found himself in a sea of sheep he knew it was not to be, and returned home.
