I'd say snails. I've seen what they do to paper. 

Nothing there to attract a mouse and if no droppings, no mouse

Bulbs to plant in December?

Unless it's a new house you may find bulbs already there. Late planting usually works OK, I'd just plant what you can find available, should be reduced in price by now.

very nice. I'd better think about decking the halls, but not much, just a token.

it is an evergreen, you're right.

It doesn't look very lively in the green bits. If it were mine I'd cut it well back and speak to it nicely. But that's just based on my approach, others may have better suggestions.

I have grown onions, they were quite good 

Agree re swaps. Done a lot of swaps through this forum over the years, including some bay. Can't remember who had the bays so can't check re success. They were suckers with a bit of proper root.

when they get going miscanthus are very fine in winter. Lovely browns and russets. Better than evergreens imo as you get the seasonal changes. If the fog ever clears I'll take a couple of photos.

I agree with Tetley re not splitting it up yet. Mine never get split, I'd like to but they're so tough I can't do it
