At the mercy of wildlife, William Blake, the tyranny of industry.  
Still at the mercy of those rabbits. I've given up trying to plant anything until they're taken care of - no bloody point since it will all be eaten. Given that I'm not allowed to do harm to them on threat of extreme pouting, I've eaten rabbit stew and rabbit pie and rabbit pate at every opportunity in some sort of vengeance-by-proxy. Delicious revenge.

Filling in on a Blake tutorial and enjoying it immensely. One positive of teaching largely lackwit teenagers is seeing a shift in thinking that suggests we might not always live in a world run by something as intangible as money. As irritating as they are, they do seem to believe that things can be changed. Robin Hoods all.

A few more weeks and I'll be on Summer holidays. Wondering whether to take advantage and go away? It'll be here on June 13 so I suppose I should talk to Valentine.

Hahaha my horror at your vigilantism is belied by how pleased I am at hearing you're enjoying the Blake course. Your email at the start sounded laced with dubiousness. Glad to hear it worked out for the best.

I think your holidays should involve taking advantage and going away to come see us! We're going to some nice spots this year! Spain, France, Poland(?) what's striking your collective fancy?

Dubious is an understatement - teaching something I wasn't prepared for wasn't high on my list of enjoyable things. Expect the worst then all your surprises are nice ones?

I was actually thinking about Spain. Also, for some terrible reason, Miami.

Would love to see you in Spain, let me know what you're feeling closer to it.

Mm just looked at the dates and you're only in for a night. Rio sounds like a better go. Would you object to some company then? Thinking something outrageously private in the Caribbean.

Rio would be more than welcome, but so far away. Monday we're on, hey?

The pleasure, the privilege etc. Good to see you, Mrs Moose.

Awrgh I love that av.

Thank you again (and again and again, especially from my thighs) and especially from the narcissistic 12-year-old part of me that loves when you call me that. x

Did you have terrible luck, June? My apologies, I seem to have missed something. Enlighten me?
