*brought up handily by the chesterfield, attempts a change in direction to the louvred drinks cupboard, but sways off course, leading with the shoulder, sporting the studied intent of a man determined but failing to take another direction*

*grabs mercifully at the Ricard on the way past, captures it more by luck than judgement, and is finally laid to ground by the chaise longue with the oiled antimacassar caught in his spectacles*

"Splendid, I see Hugenut is recently back from distantly flung parts of the Empire. Smells that way."

"Morning old boy. I would offer you some Port, but some rotter seems to have swigged it all in my sleep. Why are your specs wearing a dress? Is this required in the Levant for purposes of public morality?"

"Where's Mockney's Monkey? I need a pot of tea"

Peeps through the keyhole, noticed that the bottle of port was empty,Michael was stumbling about looking for the
door through glazed eyes,hughnot stirs slightly but turns over cuddling the bolster with a smile on his face,the most peaceful his been this year, whats he been upto sly old dog i think. moos is still asleep. and citizen is asleep
again with the racing paper over his head.
Michael has found the coffee, good I think in ten minutes he,ll be asleep. and it will be quiet again.
