Out of the corner of my eye, one day not long ago, I spotted something. Up on the top of the curtain rod - had a bird gotten inside? Oh dear!
I got the step ladder to get a closer look - hoping that if it was a bird it wouldn't fly into my face. But no, it was a strange small person - looking as if he had every right to be sitting high above the ground.
Introducing ourselves to each other I found out that his name is "Highly". As such, it is his task in life to end up appearing in places that are highly unlikely for a little waif to be.
I asked him if his ancestors might have been explorers and he nodded his head sagely and said 'its certainly likely'. He wouldn't tell me if there are others of his kind wandering my house at night - perching here and there - but I have a feeling I will find that out in due time.
