skinks and mops

There’s a lovely spot to sunbake out the back of the shop and it’s used by skinks.  When they’re not in the sun, Michaela had wondered where they hid.  I’ve often seen them in our outdoor loo but really hadn’t given it any thought at all until today.

Michaela filled the bucket and went to grab the mop that rests out the back and as she moved it, a skink jumped out of the mop head, so she carefully parted the cotton lengths to see if there were any more that may not appreciate a hot soapy bath.

All clear, she began to mop the shop floor. That’s when Michaela found out where they live…inside the hollow handle at the top of the mop…when one ran down the mop!
