SOCK behind the radiator :(

This last two weeks I have banned myself from the tack Room and use of the Tumble Dryer in a bid to save 250 on the Electric bill ... it is all too easy to take the washing out of the machine and push it into the dryer ...

SO, radiators are decked with socks; T shirts etc overnight ... to use that last bit of heat in them (already paid for)

YESTERDAY, I noted a sock peaking out from behind the radiator in the lounge ... and bent down and went to grab it - it MOVED

NEXT MINUTE A WHOPPING GREAT FROG was in the corner ... and my Puppy and I leap backwards - he screaming and me barking ...

I raced to the kitchen - got a steel bowl and placed it carefully over the frog ... but THE FROG LEAPT with the bowl on its head ...


Back I went ... lucky Nick reversed into the drive (having just taken two Ducati for Mots in his RAZORBACK VW T5 ...

He laughed and laughed and laughed as - in a high pitched screech I pointed to the offending FROG - what then leapt across the room and under the table ... as me and Mr Huggy Henry ran into the kitchen ...


Well, lifes a bit dull and boring for most of us and I hope a few of you have a great imagination and get a good laugh ... or two !

Hope the pup stopped screaming but you missed a chance to use the 1.

Ed, the way I leapt backwards - my arms flailing in the air ... I would have dropped the ONE I guess it could have been a "stress" test

it wasnt funny at the time - my heart was trying to get out
