Mouse Trouble!!!!

Good morning everyone.

It looks as though it's going to be another beautiful sunny day.

Up early (as usual)...Going to take the dogs for a run in the woods before it gets too warm and then we're going to give the loft, which has been converted into an office a quick lick of emulsion, then hopefully I can get some crafting done this afternoon before going to my parent's for dinner.

I just wanted to tell you about a little problem I've had with a certain little critter.

This is my lovely little car which I've been having a spot of bother with......

You see...she has had a little visitor under the bonnet....which I'm told by my wonderful mechanic has done untold amounts of damage.....The 'mouse' had made a meal out of a bundle of wires which has resulted in a new alternator, a battery and a regulator not to mention a re~wiring job. It has cost me a fortune but happily we are now reunited and back on the road.

To add insult to injury my mechanic found a very tiny(empty) nest tucked under the engine while he was working so they have been having free trips all over town too!!!!

Anyway the engine has now been sprayed with a mouse deterrent and hopefully they won't come back.

Luckily I have a very big sense of humour(which is a good job) but we did think the fact that the car was covered in butterflies and daisies may have added to the problem....

The flowers were left on the car after Brogan's Prom last year....partly because she loves them and partly because she is having the car when she learns to drive.

I promise I'm working on things(craft~wise) but nothing to show today.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a fabulous Sunday.

Gorgeous photo of your daughter. Glad the mouse situation is sorted. A friend of mine had one in the electrics of her camper. It wreaked havoc and was very expensive!

OMW, I've never heard of this happening before, what a nightmare! Your car looks fab, though, and your daughter is so beautiful too!
