There's a mouse in the house..

We have a small hairy problem in our house. Apparently this is par for the course while living in London (and incidentally, next to a Chinese restaurant) and I guess I should be happy that this is the first time we have had this problem. Sim was terrorised my a small furry friend all last year - to the extent that she would come home and find the little mouse sitting on her pillow and munching on her clothes. And now we have a little rodent of our own - how nice. Shell's screams yesterday alerted us to the fact! Now apparently we must get mouse traps etc which I really want absolutely nothing to do with (I don't think I could handle if it I was the one to discover the corpse!). Perhaps we need a cat...

I am currently on a contract working for a government department which has actually been quite good and suprisingly well-paid. However I am suffering as it's now 4.30pm (yes I am working, shhhh) and normally about this time I would be contentedly sipping some tea. Yet this place (shock/horror/gasp!) does not supply tea and/or coffee and I am suffering severe withdrawals. You even have to bring in your own milk - I severely object.

Haha, do you by any chance work for the NHS? lol. We also have to buy our own coffee & tea! Terrible! I went from being brough lunch everyday(or it being highly subsidised) to having to even buy my my own coffee & tea! I like your blog, I can relate to alot of the things you write :) xxx

Ha freeloading Kiwis- about as much use as a handbrake on a canoe. At least Polish immigrants are useful and do proper work- building, plumbing, etc.
