Smiley days again

Much better today. Last night I cleared all the sides in the kitchen so the only things left out were the kettle, breadmaker and microwave, put the Count's highchair in the middle of the floor with nothing around it, and put all the other chairs on top of the table. This morning no poo, and all the mouse poison has gone. We heard a couple of squeaks from the kitchen but there's been no sign that they've crossed the floor or been on the sides at all. Hurrah! Tonight I've done the same thing and put out more poison so hopefully they'll be gone soon.

I had my first pilates class in wow over 6 years today. I've been doing a home class called yogalaties for a few years on and off but as much as I liked it it's not the same as having a proper instructor who can make sure you're doing things correctly. It was good but hard work, might be able to get those fat cells moving.

And then nieceA came round for lunch and a play with the Count. She's 3 & 1/2 (she says she'll be 4 in 5 minutes) and the Count is 22 months, and they are pretty much the same height! But the best bit, was while she was here, the estate agents' maintenance guys came and fitted a new shower. No more trecking off down to the gym for a shower.

Alas since then the Count has started running a temperature and has thrown up, but we have to look on the bright side - we have a shower!

Ooh, you've suddenly leapt into action with three posts while I wasn't watching!

I quite like mice, but not in the house.

Shower. Argh. We've had exploding showers twice - exploding water, not flames. Once the water shot into the bath, which was not so bad, but the other time it scooshed into the wall and then the floor and walls below. Yuck.

Poor Count. But actually he'll be off to uni and then leaving home before you know it. I know this sounds silly. But it's true. I miss our son so much now he's gone. It's hardly bearable. Really.

Oh gosh I hope for your sake that your mice have chosen to expire outdoors, or at least made themselves more welcome at your neighbour's! Unfortunately I've far too many tales to tell about dead rodents under floorboards in the less salubrious parts of Battersea.

Hope the Count gets well soon and is back to his old adorable self in no time!

I got caught out with your new posts too!
Glad you are rid of the mice- they never seem to come singley.
Sg was a squealer- the first we'd had! How he could make the blood curdle in the veins!

How's the mouse situation now? Scared them away yet?

We've been lucky with our cat. She's dumb as a box of hammers, but very pretty and a brilliant mouser. So we know we've had mice by the fact that we see a dead one left neatly on the doormat!

Well done on the kitchen assault. Hope they stay away!
