Spoke too soon

I really ought to know better than to state publicly that the mice are dead – and in the case of the one above the larder, very obviously dead. At 11pm last night, just as I was trying to get to sleep, I heard the unmistakable patter of tiny feet in the cavity wall behind my bed. The unwelcome visitors are definitely back again! I phoned the pest controller this afternoon and have arranged forĀ  him to come back later this week and deal with them. Unfortunately, my annual contract ran out last week – but I’ve already agreed with him that I will renew it for another year. I certainly seem to get the value out of it!
