At 2am the rats were scratching and gnawing in the eaves above my room.
So I knock on the ceiling and they stop, eventually....and you lie there for an hour expecting them again.....and they return at 5am when you've managed to sleep again!! Aaaargh!!
It appears they travel along the terrace this way and although the council Rat Man has an idea whose property is letting them in, you have to prove it. Some people wont admit to a rodent problem either.
So the council was phoned and Bob The Pound turned up!! He is doing holiday relief for our Rat Man. It was nice to meet him. He farms in the next but one valley westwards, and has just finished lambing.
Three bags of leeks are in the freezer, leeks in cheese sauce last night and Leek and Potato soup on the way any minute now.
As it was wet I've been playing "catch up" in the house, so a double batch of Lime and Lemon Cordial has been made and bottled and is awaiting sterilization.
Now the rain has stopped for a bit it might be time to go gardening again-hunt the slugs time after the rain!!
