Something strange has been happening in my house over the past few weeks and I’m worried.
Things are changing. And it’s not just confined to one room.
I first noticed it when the food from the cupboards started disappearing. Then there was a problem with the washing machine. The clothes looked OK. Even when I ironed them they looked fine. It was just when I put them on that I noticed something odd: they were shrinking.
This is particularly strange because it has affected even my coats. Because of the warm weather I haven’t been wearing them, but the late autumnal change has brought cold winds and cloud-filled skies.
I think the heat from the summer has shrunk the clothes or the temperature dial on the washing machine has been set to high. Because something is desperately wrong.
At first I thought it was a mouse and even considered a mouse trap but these particular visitors are not leaving the usual traces of their visits.
Then I realised that it was indeed something else. Something that needed a bigger trap to catch it.
So, if you don’t see me for a while it’s because I am busy fighting this new-fangled contraption that is called a ‘free-will trap’: I know it’s the cause of all the strange happenings. I may set up a video camera and record my findings to post here at a later stage.
Things are indeed changing.
