De wormed

L and I up early, with steely glints in our eyes, driving off to paint and other painting accessories. For we are sprucing up the house, or at least doing a good deal of talking about sprucing up the house.

Decided to de-worm the cats, which although simple to do, and requires only a drop on the backs of their necks. Calliope as usual fine with medical things, Brian has to be swaddled in a blanket and zoomed out of Lorraine's arms as if released from a UFO. I managed to breathe in vapours from the worming liquid we were dabbing on and had a nasty taste in my mouth for hours. The upside, however, is that I shall probably remain tapeworm free for months.
