summoned by shrews

It's Good Friday and we are off to visit Ma and Pa for a few days.

Spring is definitely here. Heralded by livestock. So far this week we have had:

  • Three shrews (dead) in the dining room
  • Three shrews and two voles (dead) in the bedroom (one in my slipper)
  • One live vole and one live shrew in the bedroom (in the bed, while I was too)
  • One small rabbit (dead)
  • One small rabbit (alive, behind piano)
Nature red in tooth and claw isn't in it, but at least the cats are happy.

We've put the house on the market and we've been to view a few places, some of which have possibilities. We both feel a bit better about everything now we actually have a plan and have implemented it.

Thank you for all the supportive comments - I'm feeling a bit better physically, too and had a good chat with the midwife yesterday, which helped a lot. I have been really, really crap at visiting other people and commenting, for which I apologise - I have been visiting a bit, but just haven't felt up to participating.

Have a good Easter break. Back Tuesday.

  1. Don't you dare apologise for not commenting at other peoples'. Your priority is yourself and your baby - anything else can go hang. Anything else that's "day to day important" can either wait until you're ready to do it or join someone else queue.
    As to visiting and commenting - we'll come to you. I'll bring the iced water and ginger biccies!
    Have a good time with Ma and Pa, travel carefully.

  7. Making a decision really helps! Good on you and good luck with the house selling :-)

    So I needn't be so bothered about our solitary live mouse then! Who, by the way, seems to defy the electric anti mouse gadget that is supposed to scare them away.
