Charmion De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1253* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 21 Aug 19

That entire episode belongs in the Aw Fuck It file, Jon Freeman. My life is full of crap like that, from rustling noises in the walls to mysterious pinging generated by any (or all) of our expensive digital devices. You and your Mum have my sympathy.

I have one of those little electric travel alarms, too. If you pick it up the wrong way or knock it over, or even look at it crooked, you activate the alarm function and find yourself chasing pings under the bed at zero dark thirty. Okay, it's not as irritating as looking in the dark (because your spouse is still asleep, you hope) for the spot where the cat just horked, but it's close.

Speaking of rustling in the walls, our house almost certainly harbours at least one nest of mice, but the rodents seem to be keeping prudently away from spaces occupied by the cats -- i.e., the entire interior of the house. No one has seen any sign of mice, neither droppings in the cutlery drawer nor gnawed pasta packets in the pantry nor tiny corpses on the carpet, but Watson and Isobel (the resident cats) spend long periods sitting patiently on the basement floor with all their senses tightly focussed on a particular stretch of skirting board.
