On the down side, we lost Merlin, our new and exceptionally cute (and three-legged) kitten sometime overnight - he appeared to have been hit by a car. :(
Janes is now happily playing on his new PS4, and a rather excellent meal out has cheered us up a bit.
On a military-related front, Anne gave me 2 quid to pay for parking while I picked up the PS4 in question, and I took one look and handed it back, saying 'I'm not giving that away'....
I must have missed the news about these being struck: really rather pretty.
