    Had a break in

    Was at work in the early hours this morning doing a maintenance job at one of our sites. All of a sudden the cleaner screamed and shouted "Oh no" "Oh no"
    Rushing to see what had happened, we though she may have hurt herself. But on entering the room we found that it looked as if it was broken in to.
    There was stuff spread all over the floor, and it looked like someone had pushed everything off the ledges. Here are the results. Lucky I had the camera to gather evidence.

    How we found the room.

    And here is the culprit.........

    Apparently it is a female, and that it would have had a young one on it's back when it entered. I feel the young one would be still inside somewhere.

    If you look closely at the first image, there is a grey file holder on the first shelf. That is were we found her.

    Did you find the young one Geoff? They are very cute but can be a menace as well.

    hahaha. they must have the best fun breaking in and making a mess. cause they certainly do know how to turn a room into something that looks ransacked.

    It went to the right room. As it was a mother, the room was for Maternal & Child Health.

    Whew! My first thought was that you'd had your gear stolen! Glad it was a less avaricious interloper.

    PS. If you can't find the youngun' then I'd say mum did a good job of hiding and getting a few minutes of peace!

    My hubby had been sorting out paperwork at home. He started with it on a table and then, as he ran out of room, he had it stacked neatly in piles on the floor so that he could sort it all out. He isnt in the habit of doing it regularly so there was (and still is) quite a lot of stuff to sort out. We recently adopted a cat and she has slowly become more confident with coming upstairs into our bedroom/lounge area, so confident in fact, that she brought her toy mouse up with her one night. We were watching TV when we heard all this scuffling going on. When we looked over the lounge suite, there was the cat chucking her mouse in the air and scratching about with it having a ball....right on top of his neatly stacked papers. End result - paperwork strewn from one end of the room to the other. I told hubby that the cat had done a better job at sorting it out than he had
