No, I've not caught a fairy a swipe and earned myself a curse - I've been unblocking our drain, which was over-filling alarmingly in the rain. I had to dig and delve a full arm's length to claw out greasy sludge, leaves, and the remains of many wrigglers and critters. The smell was pretty intense, and is lingering despite my best efforts with soap and brush. I probably need some carbolic acid, whatever that is, or I'll be founding a new branch of the Friendless Society. If you don't know what I'm on about, listen and learn with Ivor Cutler.
