A Cat Called Malice
I just discovered Polydor records have taken the very sane step of becoming a YouTube channel. Specifically, Polydor classics puts up high quality classic music videos. One of my favourite uses of YouTube is to track down old pop videos - you get onto a seam of a band or year and lose hours clicking on the 'related'. This morning I watched an old Aztec Camera clip Alistair posted, which led me to Ever Changing Moods, then Long Hot Summer and finally this:
I can watch the young Paul Weller for hours, although I'm a bit bothered by his current Bradley Wiggins style haircut.
Meanwhile, Sébastian's new kill count is:
Mice - 40
Voles - 11
Sparrows - 5
Dunnocks - 1
Robin - 1
Ringed pigeon - 3
Uncertain - 9
Frogs - 1
Unidentifiable remains - 3
Yes, there's a rat in my rose bed, what am I gonna do? Actually, I picked it up and sealed it in a plastic bag till bin day. Séba has a new collar with a quieter bell, and within days he's killed a rat. Which is both good (less rats) and bad (rats bite when cornered).
There was also a young hedgehog under my kitchen table, which had got in through the open back door, got itself confused in amongst the boxes of tools etc. and was sounding distressed. I moved things and used gardening gloves to pick it up and put it under some foliage in the garden. You'd really not believe I'm in an urban area, would you?
