Now don't laugh, but I'll miss the wildlife here. Yeah I know I was not living in the Amazon Rainforest or in the Australian Outback, but there was some wildlife. Remember the hedge hog? That was cool. I saw another one a few weeks ago on our driveway. I've seen bats flying around our house. Also cool. And lots of great birds - hawks, (almost daily) herons, cute little blue tits and European robins. And remember the pellets I found? And once we saw a barn owl. It was magical. Eva spotted it one night from her bedroom window. She had her blinds open so she could watch the snow fall. It came and perched on our clothesline. She ran down the stairs to get Bryce and I. I'll never forget that.
