I had to be very stern with San as last week she abandoned us (ok only for one night) to stay with some friends. She told me that when she gets back she would bring us downstairs.
So I had to look at her severely for some time...
from behind the table. But she just laughed and took my picture.
Then I looked out at her more. She knew I was serious.
But she was still eating lunch slowly so I came right at her feet. There was no mistaking my intention.
So I got to look at the pigeons
And walked about downstairs! Success!
