Dexter’s Big Adventure

by on Feb.21, 2007, under The Rest

Today, a week from his last jab, Dex is now a big enough boy to be allowed outside.

So closely monitored by Craig and me, the monkey took his first steps in a land with no ceiling. Excitement abounds.


(As for the state of our patio/garden, talk to the letting agents, who keep promising to take all the previous occupants’ rubbish away).

    Stop being lazy and take the rubbish away yourself. ¬_¬

    Ok, I’ll carry three mattresses and a chest of drawers the three miles to the dump on foot!

    Orrrrr, I could wait for the people with the big van to do it.

    Have you seen the price of mattresses these days?

  • John

    Come over and have a go on this mattress. First of all, you can pick it up with one hand. That’s never too good a sign in a mattress. Then try lying on it. Imagine if someone were to stretch a thin layer of material over some broken, twisted Coke cans and rusty screwdrivers. Imagine no more! Here is the experience in full 3D.

    It’s not so much a mattress as a torture device, and as such is punished with rainfall. Also, I think they took it away today.

    Aw…I thought you could harness Dexter to the mattress, shout “Mush! Mush!” and watch it go.

    So when is the “puppy” going to discover trains?

    The council will take it away, if you ask them nicely and bribe them with money. After enriching Barnet council with some cash, they took away the broken telly that’s been outside our house, which had given it a kind of rakish, chavvy air.
