Strange problem....

Posted: 11/10/2015 at 09:34

You won't cook it, it's behind the cooker not in the oven and the oven is well insulated otherwise your kitchen cupboards would be singed by now. 

Despite the stories, mice aren't particularly keen on cheese - they love chocolate, peanut butter and bacon rind.

It wouldn't stop me cooking Sunday lunch. 

It'll come out eventually - I'd leave some baited traps around each night.

Pat, you could play with something new - find out what you can do with it - there's no 'right or wrong' and no one has to see what you do - have a bit of fun with it and then decide whether you want to take it further   But only if you want to - don't let me bully you ((hugs))

Pat, do lots of googling - get lots of images and then create an amalgam/montage sort of thing.  Perhaps using gouache would be an idea - or those aquarelle crayons

Clearing overgrown garden

Posted: 11/10/2015 at 07:49

I'd rake it into a pile and leave it over winter.  For a start it'll provide small mammals (hedgehogs, woodmice etc) with somewhere to over-winter  

Then in the spring, when the hedgehogs have woken up and you've decided where the permanent compost heap is going to be, it can form the basis for that. 

If there are any  seedheads on the rubbish I'd try to remove as many as you can and bin them - you don't want your compost full of seeds!
