Okay Lil, I'll have to put my thinking cap on...<br />

Spring - I wish! The second snake we had in the house, Roj fled his office before me, leaving me behind, only 3 meters away from it, without even telling me! I had to ask what was wrong before he let me know that there was a snake in his office.<br />

Faucon - Well as long as they don't come in the house, I wouldn't worry too much :)

You are both wrong! lol. Roj is the one who always tells the snakes to hide before he enters the shed - cute huh?<br />

I've actually had two brown snakes in the house on two separate occasions. The first time I was on my own on the farm. There was a mouse plague at the time and I was used to setting plastic mouse traps to catch them 24/7. That morning the mice were particularly noisy and I just couldn't catch them no matter where I moved the mouse traps to in the office. Then, when I went into the office to relocate the mouse traps one more time, mumbling something about stubborn mice, I saw a VERY big brown snake just feet away from me. OMG! I shut the door, horrified and wondered what to do. AND THEN it stuck it's head under the door! There is a whole lot more to this story including some very embarrassing bits but won't go on...<br />

A swarm of bees had decided to set up home in our chimney over summer. I was alone with my two young boys (1 and 3) and thought the most logical thing to do would be to light a fire, open the chimney and scare them off. I lit what was going to be a fantastic fire, open the hatch and BAM! the whole hive dropped into the fireplace and smothered the fire. After recovering from the shock I rushed my boys into a bedroom and closed the door. I told them that I'd fix it and that even it they heard mummy screaming they WERE NOT TO come out. There were 100s of bee in the house!<br />
