Good with words

Fear... distractions.... the efforts of a self-employed writer to pay the mortgage.... all that jazz.

Charlie's Top Five Hates

5: Single glazing. When lorries go past the house she jumps up, convinced they will smash through the thin-as-a-wafer glass. Even if she's sleeping she jumps up.

4: Snow. What's with the cold paws and why does it turn into water?

3: Blankets. Access to owners' feet v.important at all times. So anything that potentially covers feet is not welcomed by Charlie (apart from when she wants a nap).

2: Avocados.

1: The doorbell. Doorbell chimes are the song of the devil, whether they go ding-dong-ding-dong or brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Obliged to climb onto the top shelf in the wardrobe and stay there for at least an hour whenever the bell rings.
