Shifty goings on.
'Mmmphhh.' I replied.
'MMuuuffufuf.'I buried myself further under the duvet hoping he might get the message. The message being stop talking and go to work.
But he persisted.
'I want you to come look at a house with me.'
I gave up trying to remain asleep and poked my head over the top. 'What? What are you talking about?'
He pulled on his socks. 'A house. I want you to come look at it.'
'A house?' (I really am that slow in the am)
He pulled on his shoes carefully avoiding eye contact.'I'm thinking about buying it. It hasn't even gone on the market but I know the old boy who owns it. He's talking about selling, he says it's too much for him to look after.'
'And you're thinking of buying it...as an investment?'
'It would make a good family home. Needs some work but-where did I put my watch?'
He located the watch. I blinked. He snapped on his watch and stretched, all natural. 'So will you come?'
He smiled at me and kissed the top of my head. 'You'll like it.'
After he left the bigger of the cats joined me for a snooze, but I couldn't get back to sleep.
House? I'll like it?
'Men are so sneaky aren't they?' I said to the bigger of the cats.
He regarded me sleepily and closed his eyes. Moments later he was asleep.
