Stinky

An increasingly bad smell in a bedroom today had the chaps and I poking holes in walls and taking floorboards up in a vain attempt at finding the source of the odour. We were supposed to be putting a granite hearth in but Mrs OTW was becoming unhappier by the second with the less than fragrant pong wafting through the bedroom in question. Ruling out my suggestion of my socks going feral it was an observant Mrs OTW who before fleeing the room spotted the deceased mouse wrapped round a below floor hot water pipe,something I didn't see even though my nose was mere inches away. The offending and rapidly expanding mouse was taken outside (before it exploded) and the room thoroughly deodorised....Mrs OTW is happy!

Don't you just love the critters you encounter in the countryside...it won't be the last stinky mouse I bet.

Poor little sod!

It only went there when things got cold ;0)

Better out than in though, as Mrs Thud will testify...

Haddock...I'm persuading Mrs OTW it was a loner! plus I've put enough bait down to poison a herd of elephants...I await more stinky little bodies.
