Yesterday it was arranged that early this morning someone would be popping round for a few minutes to grab something.
I let them in, getting out of bed only when I heard the doorbell and then went to the loo after letting them in. They wandered into my lounge.
The next thing I hear is them screaming "oh my god oh my god ARGH"
They thought they'd seen a mouse running across the middle of my lounge. At just before 8 in the morning. It's safe to say they were freaked out.
I was a bit ARGH about the idea of a mouse in my flat but didn't have time to get out of the bathroom before they calmed down and reported that it wasn't a mouse.
It was a very small amount of yarn. They'd knocked it with their foot and it had rolled across the room.
They explained why they thought it was a mouse running across the room and said "you can see why I thought that." then looked at me and realised I couldn't. Then got what they came for and went off.
And I went back to bed.
That's not what I expected to happen. But it made for an interesting start to the day! Nevertheless I hope not to start my day like that again.
