On This Day and Bother with a Bat

Even though travel restrictions are easing I am not yet minded to risk it so I still have no new stories to post so I continue to go through my picture archives and see where I was on this day at any time in the last few travelling years.

On 22nd August 2015 I was on a family holiday in Mid Wales…

Talylynn Railway

The first day was a washout but that isn’t unusual in Wales.  In 1972 I went to University in Cardiff and spent about 90% of my student grant on raincoats and umbrellas.

We went to bed but sometime about one o’clock Kim woke me to say she could hear something – something fluttering.  I told her she was imagining things and that she should go back to sleep but then I heard it too.  A gentle quivering high in the beams, probably a moth I reassured myself but then Kim demanded man action so I got out of bed and turned on the light.  Oh My God it was a bat.  A bat.  A bloody bat!

  2. Thanks for the laughs! When we bought our home twenty years ago, a condition of sale was all the bats in the attic had to be removed. One returned through an open window during a storm. What an adventure!

  3. I had the same thing happen to me. Lying in a dark room, listening to what I thought at first was a very loud moth. But it was NOT! https://crystaltrulove.com/2018/08/10/night-life/
