Some of you know my fear of Rats and Mice. Got it from my Mother and I really don’t like them. How I ever finished up farming I will never know. Going up to feed the Badgers has always and will remain a concern in case I come across one when I go to the Sett as I have in the past. Over the years I have got marginally better. At one time I couldn’t even look at a Rat or Mouse. I can look now as long as I can make a hasty exit away from then.

In all of the seventeen years that I have been at Denbury I have only known of two mice to be in the Farm House. Fortunately I didn’t see them. One day last week whilst I was working at the computer a mouse ran into the Kitchen through the open door. I fortunately only saw it through the corner of my eye before it was scooped up by pure luck with a dustpan and brush. If it hadn’t it would have been closer to me than I would have wanted. The Mouse was duly taken far from the house not to be seen again. Or so we thought.

I made sure that the Kitchen door was closed just in case the Mouse decided to return. On going outside half an hour later we were met by one of our Holiday Guests coming to tell us that a Mouse was in her Cottage. I left it to others and made a hasty retreat. They reckon it was the same Mouse who had visited us. It was taken this time a long way from the House and Cottages.
