Mice or possibly Mouse

Posted: 01/08/2014 at 18:57

The problem with mice is that apparently they don't have bladders, so they leave a trail of urine everywhere. There are also loads of mouse droppings under the kitchen sink and that is where I keep all the cleaning materials, dusters, and the cloths I use to wipe down kitchen surfaces. So the mice, whatever kind they are HAVE to go.

There is a recipe for courgette bread and loads more courgette recipes on BBC Good Food (I think it is called) I seem to somehow be registered with them and they send me recipe emails from time to time.

spuds just fall apart when boiled

I cut Charlottes so they are all the same size as the smallest (approx) then boil from cold in as little water as will barely cover them adding fresh mint. Test with a sharp knife from time to time; but they don't take long (8 mins perhaps?) I have never had them collapse so far. Any left over, slice and saute next day and sprinkle with chopped chives

I have discovered mice under the kitchen sink. Jack Russell and I were hunting them at 2.00 am last night. Will have to take EVERYTHING out and let small mutt loose in there

I'm not usually a big fan of pink, but that parasol and cushion combo is stunning
