It isn't that Turtle doesn't enjoy chatting to his house, it's just that sometimes when he's off out he'd like simply to be able to close the front door and go.
What with listening to his house's stories about the postman and passing dogs, Turtle is often unforgivably late to his appointments.
The only solution, Turtle reckons, is to get his house a pet shed. That should probably do the trick.
Turtle's a little bit in love with Steph Baxter.
