”It’s a nice enough house and big enough for this feline to get lost in as I have to protect my paws when Lord Byron’s bad-tempered hound is on the prowl.
BUT it is a rather chilly house as there is NO central heating AND sooty whiskers is NEVER a good look!”
“I really love this big house and wish that I could visit all the time – BUT to be allowed to play with it would be even better!
I wouldn’t like to live in it though as I can see NO toys and I’d miss my IPad and colouring pencils too much…”
“Walked early to look at my old house in Piccadilly – saw into the room where I have sat with him, and felt as if I had lived there with a friend who was long since dead to me.
No sense of past agony – all mournfully soft.”
“When Lady Caroline Lamb described Byron as ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ it summed up his flamboyant reputation as one of the leading figures in the Romantic Movement…
