244. Celebrated Greyhound Injured In Ladder Fall – by Monty

The first night of living our new nocturnal lifestyle has ended in carnage.

We began the evening with high hopes and a spate of congratulatory statements about our excellent plan. Not long into the experiment however, the heavens conspired against us and a wealth of thunder, lightning and heavy rain descended.

After one unnecessarily loud clap of thunder, I made my way carefully though purposefully towards my office where I had left some important paperwork which needed attending to. On the way there, I caught the wire of the fan and dragged it three foot along the carpet. In an effort to get out of the way, I tripped on the vacuum cleaner (why is it even there; it’s never used) and banged into a set of step ladders which came down with enough noise to drown out the thunder.

At this point I decided to abandon my foray into nocturnal living and went into the hallway for some peace and quiet and perchance to sleep.

When I awoke this morning I found that we have a new Prime Minister in the shape and form of Boris Johnson.

It is entirely possible that I have concussion.

    Yes, best leave this nocturnal business to the hedgehogs. Also glad to hear that you weren’t dashing about like a mad thing at the time of the accident! And as for Boris Johnson, I’m afraid it’s much worse than concussion – it’s real!!

    • I will never trust a hedgehog again. Or the vacuum cleaner. Or ladders. Or fans. Although the fan can remain on for now.

    Huxley has heard rumours of a fabled ‘Cold Spot’ to be found somewhere in the flat, but despite extensive research it has remained elusive.

    • The secret of your Cold Spot location lies with the lady of the house. Employ all your best tricks to extract the information from her. Start with sad eyes. If you need a cold spot to lay in quickly, try Michael Gove’s office. 😂😂😂


  3. Thunder, ladders, concussions… Hmmm. This whole nocturnal thing may not be as simple as it seemed.

    Love and licks,
