I just had a 'moment' with Persil. I was sitting here working, when she came and stuck her nose into my waste bin, which I had lined with a supermarket bag (silly me). It was almost full with papers, chocolate wrappers, apple cores etc as the cleaning lady comes today. Anyway, the next thing I knew Persil had knocked the bin over and somehow got the bag handle round her neck. She fled out of the room and down two flights of stairs, shedding rubbish as she went. I went after her, and found most of the bag at the bottom, but no sign of her. It took me ten minutes to find her, and another few to catch her, as she had part of the bag still around her middle and was scared. When I got her the plastic remains were like a tight belt. It was funny, but I am never going to use handled bags again for bins - I am so thankful I was here when it happened.
