Sweet dreams all. I've a long day at work tomorrow in a simulation smoke house so will be in pitch black all day - save me some sunshine for Monday!

Now the sun is disappearing (I'm sat in the lounge writing risk assessments - day off what not?!) It is definitely getting cold despite the warm laptop. I do however have Raynaulds Syndrome and am generally very cold blooded.

Unfortunately his lordship will not be content to have the heating on so as soon as is socially acceptable I will be under my "comfort" blanket!

Ad blocker is the way forward! I am currently getting adds for:

iflorest (I looked at sending mother dearest flowers but choked at the price)

Marks and Spencers knickers (I looked at their selection of bras as these boulder holders are getting rather strained - dash it chocolate!)

And the RSPB

Suddenly my life feels a little boring!

Baby rats in compost bin

Spade as David suggests - short sharp shock and they're despatched. Much kinder than drowning one imagines!

THEN water down the compost bin so that it is damp and uninviting for any returning mother rat building a new nest.
