Snakes In A Bin

Our garden this morning...

Kidlets close your ears - Momma says some naughty words... 
(It was Dad's fault!)



Even after years of pranks, Sime can still catch me out, but he knows... I'll get him back!!!

So tomorrow we'll be seeing a video of Sime stuffed head first into the compost bin?

SMILE. You big kids! I hope we are in a rest home with the two of you in our olden days I could imagine the havock that would be caused.

Sime scared me - and I guessed what was coming. So I'm not surprised at your reaction. How wonderful, if a little disturbing, to have a snake in your compost bin. I guess it's the heat that attracts him/her.
The Smiths said…
That would be too soon... Need to let him think everything's ok first & then I'll surprise him! I've got a great idea...

I don't think any rest home would allow us in anyway!

We're pretty sure that it's a nesting female, apparently common at this time of year & she can lay up to 40 eggs... So a bit scary, but they're not harmful.

She is beautiful, but it was so bright yesterday that we couldn't see what we were filming & I can't help being jumpy!

Thank goodness she can't hear us!

No need to be scared of grass snakes, Kay, they are pretty harmless to humans. She's probably even more afraid of you. Is there anywhere you can go to handle snakes under expert supervision. I know there are sometimes sessions for children to stroke reptiles. It might help, or perhaps you would need some hypnotherapy first.

When I was in the Junior school I chased a girl around the class with a slow worm and thought it was quite a joke, so I can understand why Sime was tempted to scare you with a fake snake, but now I'm older I can see it wasn't very kind. I do still have to try hard to understand my daughter's fear of spiders. It can be difficult to appreciate just how scared of things like snakes and spiders some people can be if you don't share that fear.

Aw, Sime really got you! lol Mike does the same to me quite a bit, but like you said, we get them back!
The Smiths said…
Hi Karin - I wouldn't say I have a phobia, just a natural fear of the unexpected... I'm the same with mice when they come into the house!

The Smiths said…
Definitely! I have it all planned - just waiting for my moment!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
