Does anyone else have a bat problem?
Being over 40 has had its ups and downs and I mean that quite literally because I get up from my bed every night to pee. But aside from that, I also have to get up again because Coco is usually jumping on my head because her food bowl is empty.
What I really want to know is how the heck did a bat get into the apartment? This morning when I peered out the door I saw a swooping figure whiz past. We are on our way to Tuscany today and so our morning is already going to be an active one loading the car etc., which makes me ask, who needs to have a bat issue on top of everything else?
Fortunately, for the bat, Coco is already camping out at Mama’s, otherwise I have no idea how this mornings events would have ended up…
The bat went out the balcony window (we think/hope).
With the car loaded all we need is gas. Oops, I mean diesel. Yeah, big OOPS, because the dude put in gas. The next hour passed with me sitting on the cement wall watching three grown men pump the tank clean. Should I have just gone back to bed when I saw the bat and called it a day?
This bat photo is an old dried up one I found wedged into our bed frame in Portofino. When I first spotted it, I thought it was my husband’s dirty sock!
So as you can see, even when I’m back in the city, nature follows me like Snow White in the enchanted forest (it must be my melodic voice and floral shampoo).
I wonder what’s in store for us this week in Tuscany? Stay tuned…we are heading back to my favourite village of San Gimignano and to the Island of Elba.
