    I'm well used to dead rats and mice, and birds both dead and alive, appearing in the house courtesy of various dogs at various times, and these never get even the tiniest "eek!" out of me. Spiders i don't mind unless they have little bodies and huge long thin spidery legs in which case I prefer to swat at, rather than shriek at, them...

    But what currently tuns me into a shrieking, screaming, swearing, flinging, furious, fury is my current ability to drop anything and everything (so it seems!) that I ever pick up...

    AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHH!

    Chemists that can't be ***** to order in a prescription. Even though they had 3 weeks grace to sort it out. Then offering a completely different alternative to the script with the excuse "well they're changing all the diabetic stuff anyway." Nope if they were changing my D stuff the prescription would reflect this.... :banghead:

    I got my own way to blow off steam usually....

    Talking about cats and mice.
    I wouldnt have had mice if I didnt have cats,because they brought them into the house as gifts.
    Teenagers ,I have had four,running them round for years,sitting out nightclubs to bring them home,passing driving tests and waiting for them to come home,I could go on.
    When I was young there was no teenagars,you were either young and did as you were told,or you were married and had to cope.
    Im showing my age.

    Unfortunately don't think an owl is likely to come into my hallway to remove dead mice. At least they are dead I suppose, not running around or half alive trailing blood:dead:

    We have mouse on the patio syndrome, courtesy of our two cats, but the owls have to look sharp, because it's usually the magpies that clear things up, so by dusk, they're all gone ......

    Our cats have bells on their collars, so they don't usually get birds, though mice don't seem to hear them, but one of the wretched mogs has just come in with a (deceased) robin. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

    I don't scream about anything any more, I am immune to fear. I started to get a wee mouse in my kitchen at night and well gave him/her the obvious name of Mr Jangles lol, he used to freeze when I switched the kitchen light on so we kinda stared at each other over several weeks and I just left the wee cute thing alone. I started putting a wee nut down for it and left the kitchen. Alas I have not seen it for a while now and feel a bit upset lol.

    Country music makes me want to scream!



    When you've really done something your proud of and worked hard at, and someone comes along and either trashes it or makes a mess!

    Doing something that's going to take forever and you don't get anywhere!



    And finally Tory dogma! Aaaaaaggggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

    Aaarrrggghhh plumbers- A plumber who says they're coming to have a look at what needs doing then doesn't bother turning up, Another plumber who turns up late then doesn't bother to send the quote to us even ignoring an email and text. All I want is my bathroom repaired, not really asking for much!!
    Oh and stroppy teenagers!

    Just an update, methinks Mr Jangles is not a domestic housemouse but a fieldmouse, bright coloured and a bit bigger than an indoor one as they are darker and smaller, seen plenty of them. I think he is out partying now the weather is better. :)

    Lol. Wouldn't mind but found the plumbers on 'checkatrade' and 'trustatrade' websites. Both had excellent reviews and top marks, so we went for them.
