Lucia, cure and treasure boxes.

1. Life lessons in surprising places: E F Benson's social climber Lucia twists a crisis to her advantage, and never neglects a single opportunity.     

2. A cup of peppermint tea and a walk around the park sees off the unsettled feeling in my stomach.

3. Nick opens some boxes that have been waiting for his attention. Boxes of boyhood treasures - they remind me of the tin that Amelie found - are sorted, streamlined, admired and repacked.
