The rats are taking over the house at the minute - four large cages, plus another hospital cage and we have a very jealous dog, so the fish are the only other safe bet at the moment. Mind you, she's now jealous of the fish in the pond, too, and tries to lick their floating food from the water. One day I'll have normal pets, but I've been saying that as long as I can remember.
I received my mail-order plants today, so I've been planting up tonight, boring my other half stupid with Latin names and odd facts. I used to work for Blagdon Water Gardens, so I normally go off on tangents into shop stories, and I can see his eyes glazing over.
