Michelle has a Weekly Pet Challenge, where she invites us to post pics of our pets, or any other animals.
This morning, we had the sweetest little visitor. He had come for a nose around to see who was living here.
I grabbed my iPhone just as he turned tail and toddled off into the bushes. Obviously he didn’t find us very interesting.
A while later, I spotted him again, so went outside for a chat. Now the only bit of Scottish I know, is “Hoots mon” and “Och aye the noo,” but he just sat and stared blankly back at me. Maybe my accent wasn’t quite right.
He did allow me to pat him for a while, before rushing off to do a great impersonation of a ‘whirling dervish’, on the grass. Round and round he rolled, this way and that,
until I thought he must be quite dizzy.
But nothing of the sort. He jumped back onto all fours, and nonchalantly wandered over to inspect one of the garden sprays.
Then, without so much as a backward glance at me, waiting to get a full face photo, he disappeared off round the corner, never to be see again.
I suppose there’s always tomorrow. I will keep a look out for him.
Wishing you all a great weekend. Hubby and I are off to stay at ‘The Oyster Box Hotel’ just up the road.
Some of you may remember that this was my daughter’s birthday present to me, and we’re so looking forward to it. We’ve booked for the dinner dance tomorrow evening, but it will seem a bit strange, packing a case and checking into a hotel only two miles away. Have you ever done such a thing?
