Ok then, I have bought and distributed the mouse exterminating stuff. It could be working as I speak. It better be working as I speak. It will soon be an ex mouse. This is, you understand, the highlight of the day. Life gets extremely exciting in the wilds of middle England. Who needs safaris. Did I ever mention the SNAKE I once saw slithering over the neighbour's lawn from my landing window, heading for my garden????? I looked like the road runner at the top of the stairs as I yelled "Snake" and whizzed down the stairs and out the door to tell them. I don't like snakes. Fortunately it was winter and it moved slowly. As it was coral, it clearly was not a native Brit. How was I supposed to know it was a corn snake? And there was clearly no corn in the neighbour's garden. And as far as I am concerned, a snake is a snake, and should be gone. Geoff was the hero of the day and caught it and put it in a bin till the RSPCA people came to get it. This was a while ago you understand, but I was traumatised.
