Out and about early yesterday morning delivering leaflets when I heard a hissing sound I immediately stopped thinking oh f*** After checking my feet to make sure something had not snuck up on me I noticed a rather large snake in front of me making it's way into a garden drainage pipe at the kerbside. I let the snake make its merry way out of my way and then did a very wide detour past the drain!!!!!!!
Whilst I know there are snakes over here and we are bound to see them the scarey thing about this is that it was in the middle of a residential street where people walk up and down and kids play
About an hour later I popped back with Greg to show him where it had been and the snake had come out of hiding and was once more basking in the middle of the road before scarpering into its hole again when the car got closer. So just a word of warning if you have to walk along the roadside (due to lack of pavements over here) keep your eyes and ears open!!
Normally I walk round with my mp3 player on but thank god had left it at home yesterday so heard the hiss or could easily have walked into it.
