Can I come and have a little cry. Its my birthday today and not going well. We were sitting having coffee when a mouse strolled across the living room. Managed to hustle ds out while DH had a look to see where it went to/got in (but couldn't). Then went in the kitchen to find DH hadn't done last nights washing up. Luckily DS is off to grandmas today so will have to pull all of the crap out (toys, boxes of tube feed stuff, nappies) and have a look for "signs" and have a good clean..... Great day!!!!!!!!!! (And DH has spent a lot on a boxed set of DVDs for me which is not a present I would have chosen........)
1st of all,a very happy birthday to you.....x i bet a good clean of your house as you say will do you a world of good!! theres nothing like it, and why not treat yourself to a nice bottle of vino at the end of the day as a reward! hope your day picks up,xxxxx
Thanks all. I Have a bottle of wine from MIL for later and a chocolate cake may have leaped into the trolley at Sainsburys! And i will watch the dvds (sex and the city set so not something i would have bought but will enjoy iyswim). The mouse is definitely dh's domain. We have had before - they get in via the airbrick so need to get some more mesh - Im just paranoid about shutting it in rather than out!!! And yes a spring clean will help lift the mood, i just hadn't planned it for today! had tube feed stuff delivery and incontinence service delivery last week so just need somewhere to put all the blooming boxes!
Have you got a stereo? Wack it up with yours and dh favourite tunes. Couple bottles lager for him and nice wine for you and turf out to the beat! If its anything like my toy corner from hell I sympathise! Get a bin bag for crap and a box for silly bits that need to go with something and hoover handy to suck up the mousie! With two of you at it it will be done in no time and then you can sit down and relax.
I know what you mean on the DVDs lol my dh bought me a double XL hoodie one year as I was pregnant and needed room. I was thrilled...................then I got a hoodie every year for 5 years lol pregnant or not
Mmmm - thats a point, although I think they will be put down after a certain person has gone to bed and removed before he gets up. I suspect we will also be going out a lot for the rest of half term......(and is why I'm hiding in the dining room)
They are quite easy to hide though, mice tend to run along the floor right next to the skirting boards so I was putting the traps right up against the boards behind furniture [didnt stop DS though!] but easier to keep them away from a younger child or a child that doesnt understand the dangers of getting a finger thwacked in a trap.
