I got home this afternoon, and walked into the livingroom only to spot a mouse in the fireplace. Apparently disturbed from its rodent activities it scurried away.
It peeked out a little while later and had a good look at me. As soon as I moved it did another runner.
As anybody would, I found a comfortable spot nearby and lay in wait… with a camera. (Well what on earth do I have a blog for if it’s not to document such momentous events as this?) It did pop out again once or twice, but as soon as the camera-flash went off, it disappeared and didn’t come back. Obviously camera-shy.
I don’t know if it’s the same rodent that was suspected of making various scrabbling and scratching noises in my ceiling recently. Maybe a descendant or a cousin?
And, given I was home earlier than usual, how long has it been exploring the house in my absence?
