Concerted effort

I still haven't caught many slugs, but the rats haven't been too noisy here. However Kate's rats are more than making up for it as one decided to die in her toilet pipes so the plumber had to come and remove the toilet to enable Carl to remove the maggot laden corpse. Then his friends moved back into the attic. The ratcatcher told her that last year he was getting a couple of calls a week from farmers at this time of year, now he is getting 50 calls a week from Swindon alone. They have poison resistant vermin. UGH.

On a less rodent laden subject, we are singing tomorrow.

This particular 'we' is the St Donats Chamber Choir, of which I am a long term member. We are a small acapella choir singing mostly renaissance music Which is fine. Unfortunately we agreed to sing at a fund raising day on Saturday. it is unfortunate because our conductor can't be there, so we are singing without her. It promises to be very ... very risky. I am not looking forward to it. Tom (person involved with the fundraiser) is hosting a barbeque afterwards, but as I am driving I can't drink, which is sad because I think I might need a drink after this one.

Oh dear. Fingers crossed - very firmly crossed.

Goodness...what a post. Deepest sympathies to Kate. That is simply disgusting. Eeeeewwwwwww.

There is no way that one of you singers couldn't come out front and at least start you all off together? I know it wouldn't be the same, but it wouldn't be good?

Fingers crossed down here for you too.
