snake and a go-cart

Sunday the 10th of February welcomed in the Chinese New Year for 2013 - The Year of the Snake.  I can't help but feel a little omen that yesterday, on our Lot 13, on 13 acres of land we stumbled across our first snake - did he want to wish us a Happy Chinese New Year?  Not sure, he kinda didn't stay around long enough....  Actually I scared the poor thing who was having an innocent little kip in the shed. And yes he scared me, but not as much as I thought I would be scared of snakes*.  It was a brown snake - the nasty ones.  The kids were over the moon to get a glimpse at the snake and my dearest beloved channeled his inner Bear Grylls ensuring that in fact the snake did not remain in the shed.

We'd come to show my mum the house progress and she had brought with her a handmade go-cart made by a friend of hers.  The kids were bursting with excitement to try it out.

Somehow though the snake was getting all the attention.

I was thinking that whole moving to the country idea sounded great till you mentioned the slithery sticks! Arrgggh!

Oh I am the total opposite! Spiders I can handle, snakes I can not. Hope you don't get too many once you move in. It all looks really exciting!

No. Not snakes. I can handle spiders and the worst of the creepy crawlies, but not snakes. Eew! I hope they make themselves scarce once all the noise and building happens!
