It was the middle of the night and the troublesome neighbours had parked six vans outside my house and were now having what sounded like a family get-together in my kitchen. I stormed downstairs and made a speech:
“You lot run around trampling on flower beds and are messy and noisy and cruel to animals”. They all stopped what they were doing and turned to look at me and I trailed off… “Well, not the last thing. I’ve never seen you being cruel to animals but I thought it would make a good close to the paragraph“.
In fact they were updating my kitchen for me, although I was cross to see the children had eaten my ‘pineapple flakes with licorice nibs’. I could see the empty Sainsbury’s basics packaging.
