Things in the air

I followed my mum into the bedroom. I like to follow her around as you never know if she might rustle up a tasty snack or launch into a game. As we wlked in my mum looked up and exclaimed, "What is that and how did it get up there?"

I'll admit to being slightly disappointed with her. "That" I replied "is Josie and I'm not sure but I would think she jumped." For Josie was up high, half way out of the window. We have never seen her up there before. Mum says it is odd how much more lively Josie has been since my operation. Mum wonders if is it because there isn't boy smell round the flat (not that she could smell it before but maybe she thinks Josie could). I think Josie is just relieved I am safe and well.

But it wasn't Josie that my mum had been looking at. It was a leaf, just hanging in mid air. Most mysterious! Turned out to have been caught on one very fine strand of spider web going across the room. Mum waved stuff near it so it wobbled about much to my excitement.

We got it down in the end and mum got out the feather duster. Talk about a top toy!

Talking about flying things mum looked up daddy long legs as she wondered whether the spiders were related to ours. They aren't but both sorts have little bodies and long legs . Ours are really called Crane Flies but Wiki says, and I quote, "they can be caught without much trouble." Not if they won't fly close they can't.

Hi Toby,

That leaf sounds like it was a bit of fun! Your spiders fly?! Our Daddy Long Legs are pretty humble and they don't fly. :D

Toby, I think when you had your operation you also lost the cooties that most boys have. That's why Josie is acting this way. Have fun playing with what's in the air.
