Mrs Fit stretched her long legs luxuriously in the steamy, bubbly, bath and gave a sigh of utter contentment. She contemplated her good fortune at having the house all to herself, a rare event, as she sipped a tall glass of bubbly and delicately bit into a chocolate truffle.

I have been hesitant to write this post and am not quite convinced that I won’t be doing a follow up next week informing you that the newest member of our family, Miss Poppy, has decided to pack her bags and move on to greener pastures.
