Not much to report really. Everything drained and shut down for the winter. Very cleverly, I managed to use the last drop of water from the tank when shaving this morning, which saved some crawling around underneath the van.
The robin came in to say hello again yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately, this time he left a calling card - well, more than one actually. Luckily, for some reason I had some Vanish Carpet and Upholstery Ultimate Stain Remover, which got lavishly applied. I read the list of ingredients: anyone know the difference between Anionic Surfactants and Non-Ionic Surfactants? I only ask.
Halfway back up the M4, I thought I'd left some milk in the fridge. That might not have been nice by next Easter. As it turned, I hadn't, it was there in the coldbox when I got home. It was just that I couldn't remember having taken it out of the fridge. Is there such a thing as a false non-memory?
I have promised myself to get down there more often next season. The flush toilet will definitely be installed by then, which hopefully will encourage visitors (of the non-avian sort).
