Strange problem....

Thanks for the responses. Just got in from work and my goodness I've never smelt anything like it! Who'd have thought that such a small thing could cause such a stink?!

We've had the cooker out and just can't find it but that's definitely where the smell is coming from.  Does this mean a new cooker? Surely it can't be safe to cook with that somewhere inside? 

I'lol phone the cooker company tomorrow to see if they can help. Think it's a range master. After that, the insurance company!

Oh dead mice honk? There is the most awful smell coming from the cooker. Like when a dish cloth goes manky. 

It hasn't been out to get any food. I'm fearing the worst, both for the mouse and the cooker!

Know what you mean Runny.  The comfort of your own sofa, kettle / bottle opener on hand and no queues for the loo!

Cant recall where I heard, but I think that the set gets dismantled every week. What a task! 

I'd like to go and see them in Blackpool though. The building looks amazing.

Has anyone been to watch Strictly as a member of the audience? I think it's filmed in Borehamwood. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Beautiful gardening lily.

I got up in the dark, and returned home in the dark. Have had a peak in the greenhouse with my torch. Ami Majus seeds have germinated. Not sure what to do next with them. Picked a couple of birds eye chillies and had them in a stir fry for tea.

Is there a simple home made trap that I can cobble together? Just been to B&Q and they only sell poison or traps that kill. I wouldn't want to do that to the poor little thing.

Wasn't Jay brilliant!!  When the faster music kicked in his feet were just perfect!  And his knees... they can sure swivel! 

I thought Helen was great too. Her acting added pot loads to the performance.

Eeek! Mouse wee! Yuck! Thanks for the warning!

It's definitely in the body of the cooker rather than behind it. We had the whole thing out and it scooted upwards.  We tilted the whole thing upwards and got a torch into it and the insulation is in a sort of drape formation. Lots of gaps it could have squeezed into. 

Poor little thing.

Thanks Jo. I'll sacrifice a bar of dairy milk!

Good idea with the cat. He's almost blind so his other senses must be pretty good to have caught it.

My other half switched it on  in the hope the noise would scare it out. No luck! I can't bare the thought of cooking the little thing! 

I know it's a cliche, but is cheese the best thing to leave out??
