The problem d' jour is the when I was opening the oven door while Aidan watched, he suddenly shouted, "something just ran across the floor!" Hmm, seems that our rodent-free living may have come to an end. Not that we haven't cohabited with mice before, but we have never had a problem with them in this house.
Now maybe Aidan's eyes were playing tricks on him, but I suspect not as I, too, discovered little mouse "presents" on top of some bins in the storage room.
Now, as to the problem in the picture...that problem is encouraged by son number one who does his homework in the sun on our bed and tells the dog to jump up there!
