Example text

For no logical reason, I reached for the oven door. Just as well we weren’t expecting a visit from Martha Stewart. Grease stains trickled like frozen tears down its glass front. I’d get around to cleaning them off some day, in the next year or two, or whenever there was a day on the calendar marked ‘World Oven-Cleaning Day’. A pair of roasting dishes glowered back at me from the gloom. I was about to check out the pot cupboard when we heard the unmistakable sound of plates shattering. Rob lowered the dishwasher door.

See? Rata doesn’t hate the kitten. She’s just not sure how to make friends. Put Cleo down and see what she thinks. ’ Rob took several steps backwards and lowered Cleo to the floor.

It’d be pigging out on hours of extra sleep, dozing on a cushion in a patch of sunlight somewhere, not causing any trouble.
