Every child in the extended family has been here today.
They have been filming a film called “Chaos at the Bumpy Ritz Hotel”. And while Felix has been in charge of the scenery and props, Maddie organised costumes and make up.
When the children had disappeared down to the sitting room to film, there on the floor was a creamy gauze skirt: the sort that might stand up on its own in the right circumstances.
And while the kids were away, the cat will play.
He is a thoroughly masculine cat perfect for potential espionage. But he is also, I now discover, a sucker for a girly skirt.
Observe: and draw your own conclusions.
