Lots of people (especially my mother, several times) asked me whether I’d be bringing Smudge with me to London.
Not quite sure what they thought I was going to do with her? Donate her to someone? Abandon her? Unknown to me No2 actually asked his dad if Smudge could come and live there. Unsurprisingly the answer was no!
So of course she is here with me, trying to work out how she fits into the strange new fabric of her life, just like me.
There are enemies to be faced (Velvet the cat has not welcomed her with open paws ) but also new people to love her. MrS makes a proper fool of her and it’s nice to walk her after work, a great way to unwind together.
She will come back to Norwich with us at weekends so that the boys can still see her though. The best of both worlds
