No matter, whatever they are- rats, mice, pigeons- the cat we've got coming will keep them in their place. Ailz was buying stuff from Littlewoods and Argos this morning- a cat bed, a litter box, a bag of litter- and so on.
Mike and Su-Young are coming to lunch today and Ailz is baking an enormous pie. This is the last of our seasonal dates. After today the Christmas tree will be coming down and I'll be sizing up 2015 and seeing whether I like the cut of its jib.
