Fleas! Everywhere I go, there are fleas!
admittedly, this is because when in the house, everywhere I go, Fidget goes, and he is the one harbouring all the fleas!
is becoming very irritating now. Still can't frontline him for another week. Flea collar appears to be useless, as he is covered in fleas! Jamie is currently combing him with a flea comb to get them all out. Fidget is purring excessively loudly, at least he was until Jamie tried to turn him over to get to his belly fur! He loves his flea comb, he really does. Its quite pathetic actually.
We de-fleaed the house, but he seems to be bringing them in all the time from the outside. We're half convinced its cos he sits in the patch of sun beneath the holly bush, right next to where Mr Popodopolous (the hedgehog) is living, so they're all jumping onto him there. They don't bother me too much, I don't react much to flea bites, but Jamie is really not happy about the whole thing. Hopefully once the weather properly turns, it will die down again.
We are also suffering the annual influx of spiders, as the weather starts to turn. Lots of the ones with the teeny tiny bodies, and the really long legs. There's about 4 in the bathroom that I know of, three in the dining room and there was one in the kitchen. And I found one in the bedroom the other day as well. No big ones yet, last big spider (by big, I mean hairy and fat and black) was the mouse spider in the toilet a few weeks ago. Which is a good thing.
I rediscovered the joy of Wii Sports boxing this evening. Lots of fun, and surprisingly hard work too.
I have also discovered the weird thing about being in college all day. I don't really speak to anyone there, on account of not knowing anyone at all (having not done day release courses before, I've never met these people before. were I on weekend courses, it would be ok, I would know people), and there's one huge bunch of guys from KPMG who are all too busy talking to each other to be friendly to anyone else. So unlike in work, when I'm talking all the time and emailing Jamie all the time, now I'm sitting quietly not saying anything, not talking to anyone for most of the day. its very odd indeed. I look forward to going into work on Friday and seeing people.
Ah yes, the one other thing of note that I did today - I finally got round to changing my name on Facebook :-) I am now Tink Edwards! Its already confused one person in work!
And since its past midnight, I shall finish by saying Happy Birthday to mr beavvver
