Two totally unrelated concepts that sum up my evening.
The first relates to the work we've been having done to the house. Just before Christmas we (and by using we I am not actually including myself - I have no aptitude for anything practical) started to remodel the en-suite bathroom. Problem was that the previous owners of our house had lived with a leak in the shower for a while and when the tiles were removed it was obvious that the wall needed to come out and be replaced.
So two days ago Jim arrived - and after a lot of work he's taken down the rotten wall and we know have a replacement.
That done and dinner eaten we sat down in the lounge and we switched on the TV. Good timing, there was a nature program on called Natural World: Raising Sancho. I rarely watch nature programs, they just do not tend to appeal. But this one was quite wonderful. The Sancho of the title was a Giant River Otter in South America, orphaned as a newborn and raised by a scientist. Watching him grow was absolute fascinating - and I have to admit he was really really cute...
