What is it? It's a???

Last night, Mr C (aged 7) woke me around 4am to take him to the toilet. As we are living in a shed, while we build The Money Pit, our usual trek to the toilet involves, walking out of the sleeping area, into and through the shed, around the back to the toilet block and while walking looking up at the amazing stars we can see...

It was a very foggy night. We could hardly see in front of us. All of the bushland around us was covered in thick fog....

As I tucked Mr C back into bed, I happened to look out of the window to the area between the house and the pool. We have cleared this area, so I was surprised and perplexed to see something. There.

Remember the fog is very thick. The area was eerie and spooky in the early morning before dawn.

I could see a big figure. Too big for a person (and we live out of town, out of sight of the road, so we get no strange visitors), but definately a ghostly "thing".

Now The Hubbster is at work on night shift and my mind started to wander...

First I thought, "this could be a big mother of a kangaroo"

Then I thought, "perhaps it's a cow". Although we don't have cattle yet.

I was staring at it, hoping beyond hope it doesn't move. I just couldn't figure it out.

I jumped into bed and pulled the blankets up past my chin. I then thought it's probably some ghoulish, scary monster, not unlike the one out of the book Gerald's Game
by Stephen King, which to this day remains the scariest thing I have ever read......

Could it be one of those, out of my wild imagination, just like in this book? Although, is it imaginary??....I slowly drifted off to sleep feeling very uneasy and worried.

I woke around 7am and charged to the window, and realised it was not a big mother of a kangaroo. Or some random cow.

I had been freaked out by a tree. Here it is.

Look if you dare.

You were brave to go back to bed though. I would have shut myself in a cupboard if I had started thinking about Geralds' Game.

Very funny! I never used to get spooked being on my own but now if my husband is away I find sometimes I do - is it being a mother that does it I wonder?
