I gave my wellies an extra shake this week Dibs as I remembered your incident!
Latest on mouse-gate is that the insurance company has been persuaded to reconsider their stance, but I'm not at all hopeful. I haven't ever claimed on contents insurance before, and if this experience is anything to go by, I'm not convinced it's worth having contents insurance, at least with the company in question. I'm yet to speak to the same person twice and have now spent hours on hold.
The smell hasn't gone away, if anything it seems worse. I've booked a cooker repair chap to come tomorrow to see what he can do. Cheaper than the manufacturer.
For now, it's all scented candles and open windows in the kitchen!
