l live in a lovely town in mid Sussex, we are on a direct route to London and Brighton, and life is good, low crime, good schools and hospitals. So far, so smug, except times are changing, building is happening everywhere to house people like me who have fled the overheated property market that is London.
You all know how much I love my local wood, here is a view…….
And here is another one taken from the same spot, just facing the other way……
As you can imagine local opinion is very much that where we live has been ruined and indeed neighbours of mine fled to the Isle of Wight, citing the building as one of their reasons.
As an ex Londoner I love where we live, and took the following pictures of wildflowers in a single walk…..
This is my reality every morning, and I accept things have changed, even in the years I have been here, but the wood we have remaining ( and it is one of many in the town) still feels like a privilege, a great gift we have at our disposal.
So what kind of mouse am I? I’m a Mid Sussex mouse, who lives in the semi country but can get to London in 45 minutes and Brighton in 25, I have found my natural habitat and I love it!
Which kind of mouse are you?
