Well, you’ll be happy then,’ said Dinah. ‘I suppose that means you’ll be keeping a couple of badgers for pets before we know where we are! Ugh!
before we know where we are = before we realize where we are

‘Badgers are very nice animals,’ began Philip. ‘Clean and most particular in their habits, and . . .’
