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!

Definitely! I have it all planned - just waiting for my moment!

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
