Two housemates asleep upstairs, a rat in the living room, central heating on timed, two fridges and a freezer, lights left on and various other electrical appliances waiting to go tick at any momment.
Oh. and two cellphones charging and on in the kitchen.
The rat was fine, a bit dopey, but perked up when I opened the doors and windows.
The house didn't go Tick, Tick Boom as i was terrified it was going to as i wandered round opening doors and stuff.
at 9am one of the aforementioned cellphones rang. so if i'd have stayed at Master Paul's during the day today there wouldn't have been a house left for me to go back to.
They are very lucky i have a sense of smell
They are also very lucky I'm not the sort to panic.
I've left a big note by the cooker saying to make sure the gas is switched off.
and made a poiunt of waking them up and telling them that if I hadn't come back today they would very likely be dead by now.
