up ya pants...

I'm still giggling while writing this... I started packing up the Christmas tree today. First I folded all the top bits back (we have a fake tree) and when I pulled the top bit off I spotted something on one of the branches. My first instinct was 'a spider'... I have a huge fear of spiders. When I looked again though, I saw it was a lizard and even though I can tolerate them, I don't like them in my house so I ran to the balcony doors. It dropped off before I got there, so I asked Marcel to catch it. This is where it gets funny... He was trying to grab it with his hands but the thing ran up his shorts ?!?!? He had to strip to his undies on the balcony until he found the lizard coming out of his shorts... I should have taken a picture of that really ;)



Back to the Christmas tree now...with caution...

A lizard living in a fake tree, nature seems to get confused by us people! I’m sure you had a good giggle!

Now that I know both of you, this story is SO much funnier.....

I hope Marcel has recovered!
