With the snake repellent canisters laid down yesterday I had no excuse and have returned to the Greek Hovel. It is now 11 PM my time, outside is just miles and miles of darkness. I don't mind that too much, my torch guided me to the front door from the car. I could see in the car headlights that there were bats flying around the rat room. But bats here are not rabid and they wont bother me.
I left the light on before I left and so I did not walk into a dark room. But its not the dark that spooks me it is the noises. Out in the fields, on the windowsill and outside my door the wildlife diversity is in full cry. I just dread to think.
But, in a stroke of genius, I have managed to get the internet working here as well as a kettle. Thus I can drink coffee to keep me awake for a few hours knowing that I really will not sleep well tonight. I shall catch up tomorrow during the day.
And I can both work and also play music from the internet. The wildlife diversity does not seem very keen on rock music. And so with no irony given what it is that I fear the most outside, the song we kick off with to scare away the creatures of the night is from Alice Cooper.
