Hi! I’m Eunice and I’m an animal-loving solo camper and ex-caravanner with a family currently consisting of one adult son, two dogs and three cats, and I live in Lancashire, UK. I like reading, music and keeping fit but my biggest hobby is photography, which I combine with my various camping trips, and many of my photos end up on my other blog, http://tigermousetales.blogspot.co.uk/. My current camping companions are Sophie and Poppie, my two little Jack Russell dogs who always seem to know when I’m packing up my van for a camping trip even if they can’t see me doing it.
As for work, I’m a commercial hygiene technician – well that’s the posh version, I think it sounds much better than ‘office cleaner’ and it confuses the market research people – and I currently work in three different local businesses and two private houses. I also pet sit, looking after various pets when their owners go away on holiday – dogs and cats mainly but I’ve also looked after rabbits, guinea pigs and fish, and even a couple of rats on one occasion.
So why The Mouse House? Well as far back as I can remember I’ve always liked mice and about fifteen years ago I started collecting mouse ornaments – I blame my mother for that as she bought me my first one as a birthday present; I don’t think she realised at the time what she was starting. I don’t ‘do’ Disney or cartoon-type things though, they have to look like proper mice and over the years I’ve collected some really cute and lovely pieces. I don’t know how many I’ve got as I’ve never really counted them but there must be well over a hundred of them in various parts of the house. I also have a cat called Mouse – she’s the second of my cats to have that name, for reasons which will eventually be explained, and she’s a real character but very adorable with it.
So there you have it – the Mouse House in a nutshell, and this blog is all about the sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes annoying and infuriating but never dull things which happen in my life. I may occasionally tweak things a bit as the blog develops but otherwise it’s a case of ‘what you see is what you get’. I hope you enjoy reading – and if you do then please post a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
