Sleep in peace now little Ercy :-(
Friday, 13 September 2013
On wednesday one of my cats Eric or Ercy as we called him was hit by a car, he suffered extensive damage to his pelvis including nerve damage and sadly couldnt be saved so today he had to be put down. We got him 3 years ago as a tiny kitten shaking with fear and he snuggled in my beard and started purring as he calmed down, a great cat who never once clawed anyone or was ever a pest. Today I held him as he tried to hide in my beard, in pain and frightened, poor little guy, Im very sad even though it was painless and gentle and he was with both me n suzie at the end.

Quick warning about E Car insurance, today I got an email at 14.59 saying my insurance policy was going to be cancelled at 15.00, i rang them having previously been told by them on the phone that everything was in place and a drone repeatedly read a statement saying I had failed to action removing a second driver, this is because they previously told me on the phone they would do it, incompetent ass holes, now ive got to scrabble round with 1 minutes notice to replace my insurance, avoid them like the plague!

Ive bee lucky enough to receive an advance reading copy of Conn Iguldens new book "Stormbird" about the wars of the Roses, a fascinating but to me confusing conflict, i'll post a review when its read, for now though Im gripped, very accesable and very well written, and ooh dont the Perrys make some nice plastics!......
Note to self "Finish the damn Normans first!"

Finished some Gripping Beast Normans, not usually a fan of their horses but these I think are their newer ones, theyre Ok, shields hand painted. BTW Ive seen some Norman Armies with the horses in trappers, none of the Normans in Bayeux Tapestry or any contemporary carvings show them, IMHO they are totally inacurate on Norman or 1st Crusade Mounts, they seem to creep in around late 12 century somewhere, at least 150 years after Hastings!
