Thieving squirrels

No longer are the squirrels content with trying to nick the nuts from the birds but now they're taking our flags. We caught one running off down the garden with some of our bunting. So what do they do with it? They've made a right mess of our nice streamers. They'd already chewed through our lighting. What next? Perhaps they're just bored with the winter weather coming on.
I've had a couple of surprises this week. Me and the she boss were out on the field having a walk/run when who should be coming through our gate our way but that Beth. I don't know what's going on but she certainly looks like she could do with some more walking round our field. It looks like she might have eaten rather a lot of pies. Every time I see her she gets bigger still. I hope she doesn't explode in our house. It could be messy.
Last night, all was quiet, all was still as I had the house to myself when who should let himself in large as life but Sammy. That was a nice surprise. He hasn't stayed long though and didn't bring Abimaro with him which would have been good as she gives me some fuss. Maybe next time.
