We have been travelling for a few days and returned to the chateau late last night to find that the new staircase that will lead up to the second floor has been installed. At the moment it is a staircase to nowhere as it leads onto a few open beams that will eventually be a floor. At the moment the beams are open slats and the floor is way below - so you can stand at the top of the stairs and look down to the rooms below.
Sir Digbert Fanshaw Brownshaw has been staying with his friend Reggie while we have been away so I have just been to collect him.
We arrived home and before I could stop him he ran up the staircase like a rocket. He couldn`t stop at the top and kept going at which point I started screaming waiting for the sickening thud as he hit the floor of the room below. But somehow he had managed to cling onto a beam and I scrambled up the staircase just managing to lean across and lift him off to safety.
Most of you know what that boy means to me!! Phew! That staircase will stay firmly locked off until there is a floor at the end of those steps.
Perhaps he was hoping to become the stunt double for Uggie of the film the Artist?
I think not!!! He is much safer being a couch potato!!!
A la prochaine mes belles.............
