Out Damned Spot

The Silver Vixen is out for the day at one of her covens. The Gorse Fox had to set up her SatNav before she left, but he's received no phone calls so assume she arrived without incident.

The Gorse Fox had football this morning. Not the best of games, he must admit. Six games played, one game was a draw and he lost all the rest. Even in the second hour, when he usually gets a chance to really stretch his legs, he was unable to get out of 2nd gear. Frustrating, and even more so when he had three perfectly good shots saved by a goalkeeper who was absolutely impenetrable today.

Back home the Gorse Fox has spent the afternoon with our new carpet spot-cleaning machine.

Jasper has left stains on various odd bits of carpet where he has vomited over the years. We always try to get to them as soon as possible and clean things up as best we can, but they alway seem to leave a slight discolouration so we decided to buy a machine that would help.

For the last hour or so the Gorse Fox has been spraying the various spots with the cleaning solution, leaving it to soak in and do its job, and then using the machine to brush and vacuum up the excess fluid. First looks seem positive, but it may need a second application.

We'll have to check when it dries.
