An alien on my shoulder
I got home the other night after a hard day at the RUC and poured myself a wine. I looked down and in front of me on the outside table was none other than Tic Tac the gecko! I recognised him immediately (because he’d been so up-close-and-personal on my nose when we first met). I don’t know how he got up on the table (right in front of where I normally sit), but he just hung out there and watched me for a while. I asked him if he was hungry and tried to give him some of my tomato sandwich, but he wouldn’t eat it (go figure).
So I went inside to get the camera to take some pics of him and as I walked into the kitchen something tapped me on the shoulder. I turned to see alien eyes. I squealed and flicked the thing away. Strangely enough it came back and landed on me twice more so I managed to get some pics of it.

What do you think of those ‘alien’ eyes? No wonder it scared the
crap life out of me when I saw it on my shoulder. (PS – that hairy hand isn’t mine) 😉
What’s happening here? Am I turning into some kind of weird creature magnet?
In the past few weeks I’ve been inundated with creatures. A few of you have suggested that it’s because I need to get back to my WIP In the Company of Beasts, so I’m setting some time aside this week to get back into writing (before I’m carried off to some kind of nest somewhere!)
