Excerpt From “The Royal Navy & Me”
Outside the front door we removed our shoes and tiptoed up the stairs whispering and giggling. The girl’s room was at the back of the house and furnished with two single beds. Still whispering and giggling we undressed in the dark. Danny said “hey its Christmas Eve we better get into bed before Santa arrives”. Our laughter almost gave the game away. The following morning I was suddenly and roughly shaken awake. Still half asleep and bleary eyed from last nights Chanti, I’m told to get under the bed fast. As I struggled to comply a hand swept my clothes under the bed with me. I was barely out of sight when the door opened and a cheery voice called out “Merry Christmas girls I’ve brought you some tea and toast, did you have a good time last night? you must have been out late because we didn’t hear you come in. While she chatted with the girls I was holding my breath hoping not to be discovered. I looked across the floor between the landlady’s ankles and saw Danny under the other bed. It took all of my will power not to burst out laughing. Danny was looking at me and making silly facial expressions.
