Another busy week has flown past!
We are down to 3 rabbits. Earlier in the week we realised that Buttercup (the big brown and white one in the title photo) was not right, having lost control of her bladder. We took her to the vets who said they could run some tests but that it was probably just old age, so we had her put down. So we now have Houdini, Panda and Bubbles, their mother. Resisting the urge to get another friend for Bubbles as she is alone in her run now but can still talk to the babies who are right next door. We will see how it works out.
Warning - going Political for a moment!
So, Gaddafi is dead now! Can't be a bad thing, really. I see that Amnesty International want an investigation into how he died. Really? Please, concentrate on the real issues, don't waste time and money arguing about the fate of a man who had so much blood on his hands.
One thing that I WOULD like to see debated more, though, is the way that the NATO air strikes (mainly by the British and French) seem to have totally exceeded the UN mandate to protect civilians. With the current leaders of the British government having been so critical of the legality of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, their conduct in Libya smacks of more than a little bit of double-standards.
Political moment over.
The weekend is looking good - cold but dry. Plenty to do - shopping, stacking hay for Humphrey (my mom's pony), reading for my dissertation, cooking, etc. Meanwhile I think Mrs RC will continue redecorating our hall, which is taking on an increasingly red theme...
Right, better get back to things - have a great weekend!
