Well after wracking my brains I just couldn't figure out what was happening, was I imagining it? Were my kids trying to play a trick on me? Was there a secret 'rice thief' in the area that I didn't know about? Then one evening when I was working late the mystery was solved.

Luckily mice. spiders and creepy crawlies don't really bother me, I quite liked the idea of a little friend visiting me, however, he was causing me some problems with my work so unfortunately I decided that he just had to go.
Last night we put a humane trap in to catch him along with some scrumptious rice and even a little sweetcorn! This obviously worked a treat as we found him cowering in the back of the trap this morning.

So, did we release him? Well, fortunately for him, he was faster than us and managed to jump out and scuttle off under the bench before we had a chance to move him. Attempt number two anyone?
