The Hoffnung-Meininger Conspiracy 2

15:30 Consider going to my club but there is a slight breeze which plays havoc with my Afghan leg. Instead check on Mrs Hudson’s varicose veins for which I prescribe a codeine solution and that she make me a plate of ham sandwiches.

mr jackson - butcher and gentleman16:50 Called upon by local butcher, Mr Jackson, who is in some dispute with Holmes over late payment for a Christmas goose. In Holmes’s’ absence I take over negotiations by telling him I have a loaded revolver in my pocket. The goose is now free and we also have front row seats at the theatre courtesy of Mrs Jackson.

18:00 Potter round drawing room.

18:08 Potter round drawing room again but this time as Nelson at Waterloo. Move on to WG Grace playing cricket, then Disraeli, then Disraeli playing cricket at Waterloo. Have great success using a poker to perfect a defensive stance against a spin bowler but Mrs Hudson is unimpressed by my fielding practice using one of her dumplings. She is even less impressed by my asking for an early supper.

06:30 Woke up in armchair at 221B Baker Street and start readying for work. Realise I haven’t been at my practice in four months and decide another day won’t hurt.  Go back to armchair and sleep some more.

10:15 Re-awoken by Mrs Hudson presenting me with an egg on toast and some cocoa. She tells me Holmes left early yesterday on an urgent investigation and hasn’t returned since, leaving her worried sick. Reassure her by eating egg on toast. Skip cocoa due to skin forming.

12:00 Had long soak in bath and trimmed moustache using my wart lancer. Take in papers and using Holmes’s methods cut out vital case clippings. Three intriguing notices in the lost and found (including one for a missing doctor) and a coupon for a free hat measure. Last item is useful as suddenly remember my previous hat is being used as vital evidence in the Mansfield Mauler case.
