British pop star Lily Allen has vented her frustrations on Twitter.com after discovering mice in her home.
The Smile hitmaker, who became a first-time mum in November (11), lives in a sprawling cottage in the picturesque south west England countryside with her husband Sam Cooper - but she's discovered the downsides of rural life.
In a series of posts on the microblogging site on Wednesday night (09May12), she writes, "Me to husband 'darling can we do something about the mice in the ceiling please'? Husband 'not much we can do I'm afraid we live on (sic) the country dear, besides they've got rights, why shouldn't they live here too?' Me 'well they're not contributing to the mortgage repayments'. Husband 'how do you know, they might have their own mouse mortgage'...
"I do think they sound bigger than mice, but husband assures me that they are mice."
