It's one-nil to me in the mouse wars!
The little blighter got caught on one of the traps sometime this evening, and I just found it as we went to re-set the traps for overnight. They are all re-positioned with fresh bait just in case the casualty had a friend....
On the subject of my Dad, he had a good night's sleep last night, and I spoke with him this morning, and he felt well-rested and looking forward to a leisurely day.
I have similarly had a peaceful day - church, cleaning out the chook houses, making leek & potato soup for supper and some general mooching around the internet, looking at patterns and reading blogs. Relaxing. The FH is doing another jigsaw, which is quite a challenge as there are hordes of wild birds all over it, and he is finding it hard to match the pieces up with the right plumage!
