Random Violin

Little Tart

Ratty's baby has been purring for a few days now, every time it snuggles up to mum for a feed, but this morning for the first time it purred when I picked it up! These tiny creatures really know how to squirm their way into your heart. It was peeping at me through half-closed eyes, and one front foot was stretching out then retracting again, all the while rattling like a broken toy. Dear little soul.

Now and Zen

I came close to throwing my job in today, due to something that, put in perspective, was only a minor irritation, but on top of everything else that's happened over the last few months, it came close to being the straw. Been there 15 years on the 30th of this month and I'm seriously doubting now I'll last another 15 months.
Day got marginally brighter when a fellow appreciator of Led Zeppelin dropped in a couple of CDs for me. One of them, All That Glitters, contains outtakes, rehearsals and the like. It's so interesting to listen to! You can trace the evolution of the songs you know so well and love. He also passed on LZ's latest album Mothership which is a best-of compilation. I have all the tracks on their original albums, but these have been digitally remastered and have much better sound quality, even to my untrained ear. I've been loading them all onto my Zen player tonight so I can listen at work.
