All this talk of mice and scorpions is scary . . . . just about jumped out of my skiin (and my mind!) now when I felt something between my dress and my skin – it has feelers and a forked tail and is like a long beetle-ugggghhh Mon Dieu! What next! Quailed at the thought of killing it tho so threw it over the railing into my neighbour’s garden. Hope it is now so terrified that it willnever dare come back!
