So, I have spent the morning working from home today - trying to get uninterrupted time to finish a report from my last trip, before the next one rushes up from behind to bite me (as it will in two weeks time when I head off to Southern Africa gain). Our dining room table allows a view of the expansive back garden these Brits all have, and I saw them. The little thieving critters. Those foreign impostors on mud island soil. Flower haters. Nut munching.
Grey squirrels, of course. Not so special because there are loads of them, but I haven't seen any of them since Rose last fumed that those conniving little varmints had once again dug up her plant bulbs, just waiting now for next spring. Oh, and I did get the report completed - checking my blogs was my reward to myself.
