It used to be our routine to put on a nice music CD and Calder would then cheerfully cut up kitchen towels to make hamster bedding. But Ethel's hamster passed away and I wondered what could fill this activity gap. Little did I realise that Calder is just as happy to sit on the sofa, swaying as he listens to the CD. In this multi-tasking world, how many of us do that - just enjoy the music as it is (not as background to other tasks)?
