The other day, I was sitting on the sofa, watching a little TV, surfing the net and I see something out of the corner of my eye, I look over and perched next to the conservatory doors is a little mouse! Where might the puppy who is supposed to be protecting me be, you might ask? He was laying not even 2 feet from this little visitor, sound asleep!
I stand up and go to open the conservatory door so I can at least trap him in there and I'm trying to be quiet so Angus doesnt wake up and eat him, and he takes off running into the kitchen. So, thouroughly icked out, I call Christopher, who's at work, and he tells me just to leave it alone, he'll set traps the next day and take care of it.
So, I go about my business the rest of the day and as I'm getting dinner out of the oven, I hear the wild screams of a mouse in the balance and the gleeful grunts of a Cairn Terrier who's caught a prize. I start screaming, almost burn myself on the oven, and run to the kitchen hallway where all the commotion was.
I'm still screaming, because well, I'm just not a creepy crawly, rodent type of girl... Angus spits out the mouse who drops to the ground, looks up at me, who's screaming all over the place, and takes off running behind the fridge.
Needless to say, I lost my appetite, set out some poison and Angus and I marched upstairs and holed up there the rest of the night.....

I know I posted the link to pictures from when we first moved into our house, but here are pictures now that we're settled in! And the link to the kitchen pictures isnt working, but it looks pretty much the same...lol
The living Room
The Downstairs bathroom
In the living room, looking to the foyer
The library! (at the top of the stairs from the foyer)
We havent been too busy lately....not doing too much travelling. Angus is all vaccinated up and can walk around on a lead now, so we're working on that and he's doing really really well. Here's a few pictures for you guys to enjoy!
He LOVES to chase his tail and he always catches it...lol
After he caught his tail...lol
The other night we were cleaning up getting ready for our house inspection by the landlord and all was quiet downstairs, so we went to check on Gus and found him like this... (Please excuse the messy sofa)
Outside in the Garden (excuse the hand on the Hiney...lol, I liked this picture!)
All of us!

After that, we headed over to a place called Pop Bellies, which is our favorite restaurant out here. Its one of the first places we ate at when we first got out here and we've been there many times since and havent been disappointed. Christopher had his favorite, a traditional English Breakfast (sausage, bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, beans, mushrooms, and toast) and I had pan fried wild mushrooms on focaccia bread. Mine was absolutely phenomenal! When they said wild mushrooms, they meant wild mushrooms! They were pan fried in butter and herbs and it made the best sauce! And of course, Christopher looooved his breakfast!
Once we finished brunch, we headed to the base to check the mail and stop by the BX, where we got Christopher's birthday present.... a Wii!!! We also bought WiiFit and the original Super Mario Bros game that we used to play when we were little, so we've been having a lot of fun the past couple of days!
