Oval ceramic plaque with white raised lettering – Hill Cottage

This sign brings to mind some of those wonderful hyphenated adjectives such as hugger-mugger and topsy-turvy. In this case the most appropriate one would have to be higgledy-piggledy, the definition of which is "in utter disorder or confusion".

Remember those kits of alphabet letters for children? They always got mixed up with one another and put in the same box, resulting in words made up from a jumble of characters in different styles and sizes.

The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed the mark on the wall left by a previous plaque – I wonder if that was any better!
