It’s been a while hasn’t it?
Come in and sit down, make yourself comfortable. I’d offer you a drink but the glasses are all a little dusty. I haven’t been around much to keep an eye on things here at the Manor and there are cobwebs in the corners and an unpleasant scuttling noise from behind the wainscoting. Rats probably. Hopefully. Make yourself comfortable. Try not to worry about the noises.
