Was walking along one of our gardens when I came across a small face peering out. I let out a yelp of joy, which my boss interpreted as me getting hurt and she quickly hurried over.
‘What? What? Are you ok?’ she asked, frantically.
‘A cat!’ I said pointing to the fence, where a stone was nestled in the fence, a cat’s face painted on it.
‘Right,’ she said, giving me a look, she was not impressed.
On the back the cat says it wants me to record online where I found it, but I don’t want anyone knowing where I am – my paranoia has reasons. I think I’ll hide him somewhere else. Maybe to make up for it, I’ll add a few cat stones of my own. Or other animals, any ideas?
Oh and this evening when I got home, I discovered all the cutlery had gone and Hamoudi sitting in the kitchen looking desolate trying to eat some rice with the lid of a jam jar.
‘Jinjing says I’m not allowed to use cutlery until I stop drumming with it,’ he said.
‘What about me?’ I ask.
‘She says she’ll give you a spoon if you ask.’
