Hello there! Many "Thanks" for your kind comments on my last posting. The weather we should have had in August seems to have appeared in September! Better late than never!
Last night KP had gone up to bed but came downstairs to get a drink of water. As she was going back upstairs she came back into the lounge and said that one of the cats was miaowing at the front door. Sometimes our cats do this, they just don't want to use the cat flap (I should say the cat hole as the flap has been removed courtesy of Charlie or George!). I asked her to let the cat in and from my vantage point on the sofa I could see the cat coming in with something in its mouth. It then deposited whatever it was carrying on the wooden floor in the hallway and the thing started moving, very quickly. I screamed!
I shouted to the OH that Milhaus had just brought a mouse into the house and could he catch it!
We all three ventured into the hallway and found the mouse running behind the hoover which I had left in the hall - that'll teach me not to put things away. A few minutes later, we outwitted the mouse and it was caught!
You can see it's a bit wet where it had been in the cats mouth!
Although it frightened the living daylights out of me initially, we all came to the conclusion that it was "cute".
It was quite inquisitive and at one point sat on the OH's hand washing itself!
KP went to the kitchen to get it some cheese!
The OH placed it in the garage - to join it's little friend from a few days ago! An inspection of the garage today shows that the cheese that was left there with the mouse has been eaten!
Today in the garden there were literally hundreds of hover flies.
And plenty of these common house flies which I loathe!
All flies together!
We made some ice lollies with our new ice lolly maker - only to discover that they won't fit in the freezer!
KP was upset and then said why don't we just use the old ice lolly mould. I said that I'd searched high and low for it but couldn't find it. She then proceeded to open a cupboard and there right in front of me was the old ice lolly mould! I think I'm going senile!
Yesterday we went to town shopping and I did the fatal thing of walking past the vintage shop in town and saw this lovely blue enamel bin with a wooden handle and it just had to come home with me - a perfect home for dog treats!
Until next time,
