We have our fair share of mice, our  high skirting boards have perfect Tom and Jerry mouse entrances, we often find dog biscuits wedged in them where they have tried to steal them but are too big for the hole (1840's house)

We had the same thing happen in our kitchen casement window for the last 2 years, and about the same quantity. Do you have an old house Pansy?

No gardening this weekend, went for a mini break at Burton Bradstock, Dorset. Sea views were amazing !!. and Saturdays weather was stunning. Went to Abbotsbury Tropical gardens, also stunning but missed the best time to see Hydrangeas etc. Allotment will have to wait now till Sunday.

Alan, its always worth going to the trouble to insulate, you never know if the weather will turn frosty or not (we had none last year but I still took the precaution).  Even if we get no frost temperatures can still dip quite low. I keep a little paraffin heater on standby too.

Went up to the plot last night to find my walk in  growhouse all mangled up from the high winds the night before. Never mind, it was wishful thinking that it might survive the winter, so I will take apart and store it until March.  Just glad it was anchored down or it would have ended up on next doors chickens
