Well I've been away from my house since Saturday night, I got back last night and walking toward my house I noticed the alarm was flashing.

My first thought was a false alarm, and I felt bad for my neighbours having to listen to that noise over the weekend.

I unlocked the door, reset the alarm and heard a noise.

I stood silent for a few seconds and there it was again, a feint squeak. Within 3 seconds I had it was the floor boards upstairs squeaking, where an 8 foot burgler lay in wait.

I shook the thought from my head and listened properly, it sounded more like a mouse or some kind of creature. After a quick scout around I saw a pair of eyes looking at me from the top of the stair case.

It turns out a cat must have bolted in the front door as I was leaving on Saturday and ended up getting locked in. After knocking on the neighbours door I found out his name was Morris and belonged to one of the houses at the top of the street. He's a friendly little character and so I treated him to so pilchards as an apology for keeping him prisoner.

Now my next problem, how do you get your house to stop smelling of cat pee?!

Poor little guy, he was probably terrified by the fireworks and just wanted to get inside. My neighbours cats were being weird too.
Cat wee, hmm. Tried febreeze?

Very nice. I did one too, I'll see if it's still intact and take a picture.

Have used them 5 times and been let down 5 times. Excuses ranging from "stuck in traffic" (45mins late), "driver picked up the wrong person" and, my favorite, "We picked you up 10 minutes ago".

My partner and I stayed at Bosworth Hall on Valentines day & night 2013. We managed to get a Groupon offer including a 2 course meal, use of spa and a bottle of wine on arrival. The Building itself, including the driveway, is very grand. A large 17th Century building greets you and to the left is the entrance to the hotel reception. The building has a certain character, however the rooms could do with redecorating. We upgraded to a superior room, but the only distict difference was the size. The service was very standard. Absolutely no complaints with it, but it doesn't feel too personal. The spa facilities were great. The steam room, pool and jacuzzi are all clean. The gym equipment looked up to date and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere. We ate in the "Comptons" restaurant, a large room found behind the Carvery. There was a relaxed atmosphere with quiet music in the background. The food is very well matched to the price, ours was cooked beautifully, but not a "fine dining" experience. I would recommend this to anyone who managed to get a good offer, if we had stayed at full price I would have been disappointed. With the deal we got, we were quite satisfied.
