Yesterday morning during our ablutions we both heard a scratching noise which seemed to come from above us. It did not last long. we were out all day, getting some jobs done at the house in Bath and only returned to Gecko at midnight. this morning the noise occurred again but now moved form bathroom to kitchen. Still no visual clue to its origin. However, when we started preparing breakfast we discovered the Weetabix packet had been chewed. so we have a mouse somewhere. It has managed to get into the roof between the steel shell and the wooden lining. I hope he has not eaten too much of the insulation or taken a fancy to the wiring.
She who must be obeyed has now gone to Daventry in search of a mouse trap.
More news as it unfolds.
