|Rats And Bats

Odi was round here yesterday afternoon cooking her tea on our stove. Her own stove- supplied by the Home Office- had packed up. This is the fourth she's had . The Home Office buys secondhand- to save money, of course- but four dodgy secondhand cookers at £100+ each will have cost them twice as much as one cheap new cooker with a warranty. When the repairman took the latest casualty apart he found a long dead rat in the circuitry. |
The Home Office says it will supply her with a new one (cooker, not rat- but then one never knows) by the end of the week.
Fabi took a fancy to our waste food caddy and was dragging it round the yard and kitchen like it was a horse on wheels. Well, it has handles so that's clearly what it's for. He can throw and kick a ball with some accuracy now and I was trying to teach him to hit it with a stick- like a batsman. When he's a little older I'll buy him a set of cricket things.
