A Good Start to the Day






This morning I took a basket of washing down to the laundry room.  I always approach this area with some trepidation early in the morning just in case there has been any mice activity overnight.  Sure enough, there he was - a dead mouse with his legs in the air.

On the other hand...




It was a potato.  Paul had dropped one of his seed potatoes destined for the garden.

I shoved the washing into the machine, remembered to add the detergent, shut the door and switched it on.





They're not even matching socks!  My day can only get better.

    1. I need one of those new washing machines where you can add socks mid-cycle.

  4. I agree that it is always a good idea to put detergent in the washing machine before pressing the "start" button. You must have studied Domestic Science at school.

    1. I didn't. Perhaps that's where I went wrong.

  5. I thought it was the thing to wear odd socks or even shoes these days.

    1. I often do, sometimes not intentionally.

  6. I often talk to odd items left on the floor, especially of a dark colour, being heard to say "good girl" without flinching on finding I am wrong and covering perfectly.

    1. I didn't speak directly to the potato, just uttered something like "bloody hell". As you do when you find a dead potato.

  7. I went upstairs, two days ago, to find two very dead baby mice and quite a lot of blood. What Freddie had been up to I'm not sure, but he received a good talking-to.

    1. We've had no sign of any mouse activity since we got back, must have been happy to stay outside this winter.
