...whilst on the subject of our new neighbours...
Yesterday while Jamie was asleep, I was sitting at the dining table looking out over the back yard. It was a warm day so I had the double french doors open. It was perfect. Peaceful. Jak was lying on the lawn in the sun, asleep. The birds were chirping. Etc.
You got the picture?
I heard some clattering at the back fence. Quite a lot of clattering. Ongoing clattering. And as I was looking, I saw a head appear over the fence. Then a torso. Then a couple of hooves.
A goat had it's body half over our fence!!!!
Yes, they have a goat. It would seem that dad's away and the kids don't have the inclination to keep the lawn mowed. They have a goat.
And some idiot left something alongside the fence so the goat to clamber halfway over the fence. He was eating the new leaves on the tops of the shrubs that line our back fence, lol. And bleating plaintively. (Can they bleat any other way I find myself wondering.)
Amusing more than anything else. I guess if he does make it fully over the fence (unlikely), we could get to keep him. He'd save us $25 a fortnight on lawnmowing...
Not sure what Jak would think though.
Ok, that's it for today.
