Lady Magnon has recently been extremely busy; she's discovered a new talent, and has become a cat whisperer & hypnotist.
She's been practising on Freddie (our tabby cat), and her results, so far, are interestingly varied. Mostly he just slopes off somewhere for a quiet sleep, but occasionally he gives in to her insistant demands, and lies down on his back on her whisperer's couch.
Once she has his undivided attention, she waves something in front of him (a strand of wool is a favourite), and insists that he fall asleep. Then, as soon as her back's turned, he slopes off again.
Lady Magnon is quite pleased with her progress, and is already planning clinics in London, Paris, Rome, and New York. So if you've got a moggy that needs whispering to, or putting to sleep (careful, Cro), then she's your gal.
Inflammatory comments - I hear they have appointed a retired High Court judge to head the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower business, and they still have not released the full figur...
