Eye Scream

Most of *Test Week* done - then the computer system collapsed into meltdown so more to finish on Monday.  TGIF!

New paint for the bedroom is called *Spring* - looked good in B&Q tho' on the wall it is distinctly reminiscent of 

Can I live with this?  Will I respect myself in the morning?

Ratsaga II - Fin

This morning, Ratty had moved back to the living room where I managed to confine him under the TV stand.  Maggi-Mittens frantically, but ineffectually, dabbing between the slats with her paw, Ratty squeaking piteously the while.  Eventually, Ratty was caught in a small bag and, seeing as how he'd put up a brave fight for life, was released unharmed on the river bank.  The rather blurry (speed action!) photo just shows his tail and lower body disappearing into the foliage.

Cats are cross :D

Maggi-Mittens (who is rather larger than this now)

last night presented me with her first rodent - one adolescent ratling - alas, not as cute as this fella.

 Unfortunately, her skills did not extend to dispatching the critter which ran under the sofa.  After half an hour or so of sniffing about, M-M decided it was time for a snooze and promptly lost interest.

Sofa got pulled out - no ratty to be found.  Awoken last night by scrabbling - damn thing's in the bedroom now, hiding behind very heavy furniture and under-the-bed boxes.  Cats know it's there but seem incompetent to deal with it.  Rats!

Arranged to borrow mousetraps and walnuts tomorrow.

Vroom Vroom

While waiting for my car to be serviced yesterday (all the free coffee you can drink + Obama v. Jones the Nutter on the plasma screen), I took these photos of the veteran motorbike collection housed at the showroom.

What IS it that makes motorbikes so sexy - even when stationary??

Good News for Snorfle

Just read about this - just what the town needs (apart from a few more shoe shops).  Particularly looking forward to comedy nights - the new rock'n'roll :)
