Rainy Days and Mondays

My rain gauge tells me we have had 20mm of rain in 10 hours. The excess water is already running off the ploughed field furrows and flooding low lying areas.

Neighbour tells me he has a rat under his garden shed - oh bliss, oh joy!! Just when we had shifted our friend Moley. The rat could have come straight off the fields behind us or from a nearby farmyard cum stables. Neighbours two terriers are in for some fun and have been sniffing around. We invited the dogs into our garden, afraid the rat might be interested in our compost heap - but no - neighbour assured us - no rats had passed nearby. Please Ratty just concentrate on Neighbour's shed!

Imagine the dogs would surely have sniffed out any trace of rat, so you can relax about that.

We have had a lot of rain here too, yesterday, and today it hasn't stopped.

Ratty and Moley. I hope the shed isn't Toad Hall:-)

Let's hope those terriers have done the trick.

We seem to have mislaid our rain gauge but whe can tell roughly how much rain we have had by how flooded the path is.

I had a pet rat once, it lasted all of a week because as soon as my mum saw it she took it back to the little boy who gave it to me. His mum wasn't too happy it came back. My mum told me it was too unhappy away from the little boy! Hope your wild rats stay away from your place!
