So, I was up late last night, reading and with a bit of headache, when I had to get in some fuel in for the fire. So, just as opening the coal shed door I spotted movement along the road at the back.
Now it's not unusual to get foxes, rabbits even the occasional badger around here. We're right on the edge fo the suburban area, and out beyond the ring of big grey steel box warehouses are fields and old woodland.
But this was a fox. A pure snow white fox. Very obviously not a dog.
It stopped a moment, sensing I was watching, and looked straight at me with bright blue eyes. Then it blinked, and with a bob of it's head in my direction, trotted off like it had some place else to be.
You do not expect to see a Kitsune in Yorkshire.... especially in the arse-end of nowhere that is Castleford.
But I swear, that's what it seemed to be.
