How long, moult and guerilla tactics.

1. Looking back over a long piece of work and running a word count on it.

2. Pippin, a golden retriever, is moulting -- fluffs of white blonde undercoat are poking through her red gold topcoat. It is tremendously satisfying to pull them out and let them fly away.

3. Stripping the cardboard off a four-pack of tins and leaving it at the checkout so that we don't have to take it home, store it and then bring it back to the recycling centre. I secretly hope that other people will do it too and supermarkets will start to take more responsibility for their share of domestic waste.


  1. LOL I love picking clumps of fur out of my dog. She's a Shiba Inu, with shorter, straight hair, so the clumps stick out. When we let the fur fly, she sniffs at it and starts to sneeze. Then she runs around in circles. Thanks for reminding me of that!

  2. I Always make a point of leaving Sainsburys store a little pile of cardboard .Its so nice to read that someone else does too .

  3. I've never had the nerve to leave the packaging at the supermarket but I think you've helped to persuade me to start doing it.
