Snake-NOT a worm!

Hello…remember me? I don’t want to count how many days it’s been since my last post but I have my reasons! Like me and my family have moved into our new house five nights ago. We didn’t have T.V or hot water for a day or two, and still don’t have WiFi. I’m at a friend’s house now, leaching off their internet.

Anyway-the new house. We still haven’t settled properly because we have no proper furniture yet (except for beds). We don’t even have chairs!! We’ve had to use fold-up camping chairs and a camping table for replacements. We’re camping in our own home. Hmp. 😦

My room still isn’t very decorated yet but I have big plans for it! It’s in a weird L shape (suitable for my name….), so I’m going to have a high bed against one wall, a desk with a computer and a spinny chair, behind that an electric drum kit, then opposite my bed I’ll have a big green, cosy sofa, and by the door I’ll have my chest of draws and a massive bookcase. 🙂

We’ll also put shelves up on the walls as well so my Voo-Doos can go on display, I’ll have all my posters and drawings on the walls (even on the ceiling if I run out of room!) and the walls will be a light-ish blue with one dark blue wall with silver stars on it. I’m also hoping to buy a big teacher’s whiteboard to fix onto one wall so I can do plenty of drawings. 😀

And unlike my old room my windows have window-sills, and I’ve put my handmade rockets, dragons and Venus-flytraps on there. I also have a really nice view of the garden as well. It has three sheds, two at the front of the garden (one very dark and cobwebby, the other bright and a total WRECK!) and a big white one that looks like a tiny version of a house. The only problem is that its locked….

However, our garden is teeming with wildlife! There are no frogs like in my last house (I even did a post about them), but there are dragon-flies flying around and earlier I even saw a SNAKE!!

He (or she…whatever) was quite small and a sludgy greyish colour (so maybe he wasn’t a grass snake), and was found hiding under the compost bin. And NO-he wasn’t a worm, he was over twice as long as a worm and we saw his tong flick out lots. He also slithered, he didn’t wiggle away under a fence into next door’s garden. Lets hope he wasn’t poisonous! 😀

Frogs in the garden!

There’s always been frogs in my garden, but Nathan is always there to chase them of. One time, she had one cornered, but it played dead…and it worked! She became much more cautious, giving it time to spring away.

Anyway, the frogs all have their hiding spaces, some risk the hedge, lots like the bushes at the back of the garden, but today we found a little family of them hiding in an old Butler sink we use to hold flower pots! They used the hole as an escape root into the tall, shady grass, away from Nathan’s prying nose. We found them when my mum moved a flower pot, revealing their hiding spot. There was a very big frog, and a smaller one. However, I only managed to catch the smaller frog on camera!

Ribbit-ribbet!

Just ignore the creepy dwarf. 🙂
