Mugged by a Squirrel........
On saturday i was pottering in the garden and had a sit down when a large Dragonfly landed on my arm….it was at the top of my arm starring its bug eyes at me… i darnt move….. after a while i tried to get indoors with the dragon fly on my arm to get the camera… but it flew off before i could take a pic…… : O ))
Then on sunday i was hanging washing out when i heard a comotion from round next doors sidegate….. i knew she was out so went to investigate.. i couldnt beleive my eyes as a large squirrel was running up and down the wall of the house next door which is only a couple of feet away from my fence….i was fascinated as we dont get squirrels here being so near to the sea and a lack of trees never seen one in the 5 years ive been here….. after running up the wall it ran down onto the fence and suddenly made a dive at me.. it happened so quick it landed on my hands i must have put them up to protect my face…. it hit me with a thud and i felt it scratch me… i screamed out and it ran off back up the fence along to neighbours gardens…. i watched in amazment and couldnt belevie what had just happened….. it was quite large and my hands were hurting….. i went indoors quite shaken…. and today i have scratches on my right hand and my left hand hurts a lot where it is bruised…..i dont know where it came from or why it jumped on me…. but i dont think i will get to near a squirrel again…..
