Winner of the August caption competition…

There were, as usual, some good and inventive entries for the caption competition.  Perhaps not surprisingly, the lampshade figured fairly prominently.  Some of these lampshade-inspired entries made it to the shortlist.  Rob Cadman neatly managed to link the lampshade with my hand movements: ‘Lord (Norton) levitates lamp shade while shuffling invisible pack of cards’.  (I multi-task in different contexts.)  However, the runner-up and winning entries were unrelated to the lampshade.  seanjm72 came close to winning with: ‘Lord Norton was concerned that this game of hide and seek was not being taken seriously by all the participants’.  However, the winner, by a nose (or a shade), was Pendragon with:
