Today I finally worked out how to get into XP on the COTA computers. I can't think why it had to be so hard but hopefully I will be able to show my new client how to send emails because Win Live mail is quite different and he has XP at home. I haven't tried Live Mail out on the COTA computer yet ... that is a joy to come but I need to try to work out gMail because himself was unable to work out how to send an email today and I was not able to find a way either.
Himself is off to Europe on Saturday and while he is away herself and I will be shopping for Persian (or at least Oriental) rugs for the floor as the babies don't like walking on the cold tiles and I can't say that I blame them. I also need to get blinds fitted because the sun is now far enough to the south to come into the apartment in the early morning and put my water colour paintings is some jeopardy, albeit minimally but the blinds might help to keep the warmth in during winter. I have been meaning to get some installed ever since I moved in.
Parsifal the Bald, with his shaved tummy looks quite disgusting when he sits down as he now has a naked apron which rests on the floor so, in the absence of frozen rats and mice I have instigated another of the strategies for the prevention of pica. The babies now have to work for their food and I am spreading it around, some in accessible containers and some in rolling thingies which Poppy can't work out. She might need some extra feeding although she is not particularly skinny either and it might do her good to work for her keep for a while. At the moment she is being very vocal about the whole thing so I gave her some pellets in the proper dish and she ignored them. I don't think that she is going to starve any time soon.
