Back to normal soon

The girls are going back to school tomorrow, so the holidays have come to an end - until the February half term!! I have enjoyed these holidays, and relaxed - it's been good.

So, tomorrow, they will be off at 8am, and I will be starting to do a bit of "spring" cleaning; I always enjoy a good clean out of the lounge when we take the decorations down, which I'll do tomorrow. There are surfaces that have had decorations on for three weeks that must be harbouring spiders - and talking of wee beasties - we have a mouse! I saw one in the utility room late yesterday afternoon, so we set two traps last night and the cheeky beggar ate the chocolate fudge off both of them and lived! I may have to bring the cat in for a night or two - but then will there be any evidence of her catching them? The EFG says that the cat often leaves the head or the tail as her trophies, so we might get some evidence! Perhaps if I am a bit mean with her rations at tea time, she'll be hungry enough to hunt...

We have had problems with field mice, I used peanut butter in h the trap and have caught about 10, but I had to get the mouseman in, he put some stuff down that kills them without smeling, he has had to come 3 times, but for the past few days we appear to have been mouse free!!

Good job I am not squemish, dropping those cheeky little 'b's into the dustbin. I should add that we have lost 2 mouse traps, I have no idea but think they may be under the void at the side of the sink unit....we have to have some water piping work done in the spring, maybe we will find them then, just hope there are no bodies in them.......
