Old cottage Co Clare

This is just outside Ennis, an old cottage living out its latter days as a little shed, its thatch gone, it reminded me of a poem learned in school

O, TO have a little house!
To own the hearth and stool and all,
The heaped up sods upon the fire,
The pile of turf against the wall!
from the 'Old woman of the Road'

an old mouse in a wheelchair named Bridget lives in it, it is very cosy but she has to use a wheelchair to get around so its not very tidy! :D

"Old mouse". Hahah. xD

She is 3 years old, in human terms that is about 96 in human terms.She used to live there with a vegetarian Owl, but it was always an uneasy relationship, especially when the Owl started to drink Jack Daniels and that became very regular.
