So I was out planting some trees in my garden this evening. All was good with the world, had managed to get the first cut on my postage stamp lawn yesterday evening as well as managing to paint two newly acquired oak barrel planters for my decking into which my new trees were being planted this evening.
Then suddenly it all went haywire when my neighbours young son was hanging out the window pointing to a MASSIVE rat sitting in their garden. Now, I'm not stupid, I know already that rats are never far away, especially if you live near water, like I do - except knowing and seeing are two very, very different experiences. I mean I haven't felt this girly about anything since, well actually ever. I am freaked out - the one thing that I really couldn't handle is rats in the house, I'll deal with spiders, really won't like a field mouse but I'll actually make myself voluntarily homeless if I come face to face with a rat.
Of course, now I know I have not helped myself, even though I thought I was doing the right thing when I went online to find out what I could get to keep them out of my garden and happened upon this gem on Google Video - insomnia here I come for a long long time!!!!!!!!!! By the way turn down the sound if you're squeamish!
