A mouse in the house...

...or to be correct, my office!!!!!
A little fella like this one has been having a fine old time getting stuck into some lollies in my office.
The little bugger has eaten his way through, not one, not two, not three but FOUR Freddo Frog bars! I had no idea that mice liked chocolate. He even chewed through a peppermint boiled sweet with chocolate in the centre!
A trap has been set in his honour.

For the record, mice do not intimidate me or make me squirm, however, on the other hand, huntsmen spiders are a whole different story. A few weeks back, my office partner picked up a book off my desk and there was a lovely big fat hunty taking refuge underneath. Joe dispatched with him (after a game of catch me if you are quick enough) just before I got to work saving me from having a coronary! Good job!

Cheers - Joolz


  1. I'm not too fond of spiders either Joolz. If you do want to keep snackies in your office, keep it in a tin, mice can't gnaw through metal. I've still got tupperware with chew marks from little mice
    on the lids. I guess there isn't too much food around for them so they're reduce to eating Freddo Frogs :)
    take care

  2. Ug, hopefully you can find a way to get him outside where he belongs. I bet that he was on a bit of a sugar high after eating all that candy.
