...stop mice from eating my sweet corn??

I've never had this issue before, but we have definitely got mice in the garden somewhere as they already went through my seed box this winter.

Re: Just agreed to buy first house!

Ahh! Nothing like buying your first house! We are still in ours - 10 years, a marriage and two kids down the line, it's high time we moved actually but the whole thought of getting it Market ready and looking for a new property fills me with dread. :shock: We'll have to move at some point as we're r...
