Are most of them impossible, or am I just missing something, though?
I'm not succeeding 100% of the time, but my instinct is that it's always possible -- I've made an identifiable mistake each time I've lost. Try encircling as large an area as possible with a dotted line. When the cat gets to the edge you can fill in the gaps faster than it can move. Or you can try a main enclosure with a false escape route that can easily be blocked. This is more difficult, but you get plenty of time when it has to come back the way it went.
I registered with the Cambridge Careers Service the other day. I want to get started with all that stuff relatively early; my logic is that the time at Cam always seems to go so quickly, it'll be relevant before I know it...
I've been majorly busy with certain things which I'm sure I'll tell you all about at the next meet
I just got two returns from March (somewhere in the Fenland wastes, where we're having out boat fixed) to Exeter (where we are staying for the week) for £90. If i'd not shopped around and gone to Megatrain etc, it would have cost £188. Not bad. The best deal was that I got two singles from Exeter to London for £7!
Why is it then, that getting to London for the weekend (in October) is going to cost us £66 for the two of us? GRRR
There was a big fuss over a supermarket being built in Mill Road - is that the Tesco?
(though there's a huge one just a little way along the river from all the boathouses etc, already)
I believe so; I remember reading about it on those Mill Road resident's fliers that came through my letterbox last year ... I'll be thirty seconds from Sainsbury's this coming year anyway, so I doubt that it'll affect me.
