I trotted out into my private little oasis of calm - the back garden - and became aware that I was being watched.
I looked up.
I need to get a bit closer to the fence to be sure....
The cheek of it! He's watching me in the privacy of my own back garden.
I ran at the fence, barking my head off and he turned his head away to pretend he wasn't looking at all.
"Come in, Winnie," said the LOTH.
If this was a staring contest I was going to win. After all, there's always a 'win' in Winnie.
