Eager to finish my latest Maisie Dobbs mystery after not finding much time to read in Holland I decided to land on the southeast coast and take the train back home.
Apart from some strange intermittent clatterings and the odd excitable chorus of squeaks from the next carriage my journey remained uninterrupted as I snuggled down into the plump velvet cushions to finish my book and afterward drift into a deep slumber.
By the time the ticket inspector managed to wake me at Mouse Town most disembarking mice had already left the station and as the eerie silence of the platform followed me to the town library and hung around whilst I exchanged my book I began to wonder whether I’d stepped off the train and into some strange parallel universe.
It wasn’t until I passed by the park and got knocked off my feet by a trumpet-wielding maniac that my fears were allayed and I knew I was back home!
