I think the mystery attached to my credit card being found beside my phone, on the coffee table, on New Years morning is starting to erm …… slowly unravel …. and the mists of hazily vague, half imagined memories are beginning to lift ….. as the parcel that arrived for me yesterday has proven!
So ………. I sort of remember, after a couple of Vimto and Um-Bongo cocktails, thinking that it would be rather nice to have a garden ornament of a symbolic type nature to capture and reflect the essence that is Castle Greysqurriel ……
……thinking, along the lines of a a playful, faux squirrel, clambering up our portcullis …… or something similar ….
….. however, I strongly suspect, that in my aforementioned hazy state, I may have keyed in a wrong number or two when entering in the item code ….. because instead of a “frolicsome squirrel” I seem to have ordered a rather large and imposing raven, that is far from the embodiment of all things said frolicsome!!
Now, I could return it …… but after some debate, none of which was heated, we all decided that, this fearsome creature could act as quite a deterrent to any person wishing to perpetrate our portals, “A grim guardian of grave foreboding of what may lay within!” as Nigel so succinctly put it!
