You would, but that's not what the post (or I) meant :-)
Anyway, it's nearly 1 am and I need my sleep. Sweet dreams!

The visitor.
I saw a shade passing left at the bottom of the garden towards "Tiggy's" bush and a second later the same shadow running right, followed by Tiggy :D
I could then spot the give away tail of the squirrel. 
It climbed to the top of my neighbours' Hazelnut tree (good spotting but bad timing as it hasn't got hazelnuts yet!) and stayed there until we all went away. 
I left some food and nuts but I'm not sure it touched it or if it has come back at all. I hope it does, but I wouldn't like it seen chased by the cats.

Live and let live.
Introduction
I am a Mother, Android Fan, Car Nut, Translator and why not a bit Geek :)

I was born in Argentina many moons ago and have lived in England since end of 2000.
I'm very curious about everything and enjoy learning new things, most often by trial and error  (especially techie and car stuff).

The most important things in my life are my family (cat included) my friends and my FTO.

My hobbies are going to the gym, not only to feel better physically, but mentally; my car, which has gained me an extended family in the FTOOC; and tinkering with my Nexus phones & tablet (actually, I started with a Motorola V600 - yes, I'm that old!)

I don't follow people "en masse". I check profiles when I can before adding someone to see if we have any common interest. 
If you want me to follow you back quicker, best way is to interact with me (I shouldn't need to say this but I will) politely and with respect.

I am a professional translator, Yes, I do it  for a living. 
I graduated in Argentina and have been working freelance ever since. This goes very well with learning new things because of the variety of subjects I need to deal with. I really do learn a lot while translating and love it!
Please follow my GC Translations page for anything work related and I'll probably follow you back. 
This, though, is my personal profile, WORK FREE ZONE, and I will only follow you back if we're related in some way other than work.
I don't want to do a break from work to come here and read more about work :D

Anyway, enough about me. Let's hear about you :)
Bragging rights
Even though I'm a lady, I do my own modding and hacking about on my Android phones, my computers and my car. Done some drag racing and track days on my FTO and can even change the Power Steering belt :p.
