Post No. 61 - Our First Houseguest!

This might surprise you all, but we actually have someone staying with us at the moment! To be honest, we were a bit surprised as well, but hey, everyone is welcome! or not….

Turns out this guest is a distant relative of someone we knew well in the UK, anyone remember Dave the hamster? Yip that’s right, we’ve got a mouse running about the house!
We were woken up at about 5am this morning by a weird gnawing and rustling noise. After lifting up Katie’s bag, something small, brown and furry darted under the bed, then I found a Snickers bar with the corner nibbled off, wrapper included! I was amazed how fast these little guys can move as it dashed out the bedroom door, they certainly don’t look that fast in all the cartoons! Nobody seems to be surprised when we tell them about it, and they sell mouse traps in the supermarket, so I guess it’s just another one of those things we need to get used to down here.
Katie’s Dad wants us to keep the mouse and look after it till he gets here so that he’s got some company during the days we are at work, but, no doubt to his disappointment, that’s not going to happen!

Of course you can all learn a lesson from this. If you are staying with us, don’t nibble our chocolate bars in the middle of the night or you might end up in a trap the next day!!!
