Strange problem....

Posted: 11/10/2015 at 13:35

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. 

Strictly is back!

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??

Morning, we have a bit of an odd problem!  Courtesy of Sid (our kitty) we had a live mouse in the kitchen on Friday night.  It legged it behind the cooker and didnt come out.


We took the cooker out yesterday and spotted the mouse in the bottom bit...the next second it legged it upwards and hasn't come out.  We've taken as much of the oven apart as we can but can't find it. We locked up the kitchen and left some bird food out over night but it hasn't been touched.

Any ideas on how to tempt it out? 

There goes cooking Sunday lunch!

wow Victoria- you have been busy!

i got home to find that my mum and dad had been around. The house is full of vases of lovely cut flowers from the garden, the ironing is done, everywhere has been hoovered and my tea was all ready to just turn the cooker on. I am very very very lucky.  They know how to make a house a home.

Holiday plants are great. Always a nice reminder of a trip.

It is bucketing it down here. Water butts will be full to the brim.
