The day started with the usual kitten alarm clocks and chocolate cereal. After my own feeding had been attended to we went about the animals to attend to theirs. Nothing terribly exciting happened with regards to the animals, aside from actually seeing the crow eat. The quails hadn’t eaten as much as usual, so were not given as much today.
This preceded replacing the water in the axolotl tank and wiping the glass.
After holding some panes of glass in place for Graham, we commenced clearing out the stairwell in the back of the conservatory. The entire space was full to the rafters. Around a third of this proved to be taken up by large empty boxes, which were subsequently piled into an enormous mound in the garden, ready to be flattened. A couple more bin bags of rubbish were also removed.
Things that were to be of use for the Weird Weekend were set aside in another big pile and everything else went back onto the stairs, including rather a lot of bubble-rap (for some strange and unknown reason). The overall volume of the stairwell seemed to be reduced by about half.
Quite a bit of time was then taken to calm myself back down after being accosted by so many large spiders. In fact, this was the end to today’s activities.
