I’ve taken in a male lodger rather against my will but there was really no way of saying no.

By chance, I met the dog owning cat owner the following day as she was booking into St David’s Park hotel until rented accommodation could be found.  She mentioned she would have to find a temporary sleeping place for Fudge, her dog  as he was barred from the hotel.  I thought that one more dog each night would not be too much of a problem so I agreed to have him and so he arrived that evening accompanied by 4 tins of dog food.  Hufflepuff, my Schnauzer  immediately began flirting …..
