Just a thought - and this is most definitely NOT to blame you in any way - you mention that you moved to your new place from an abusive living situation before, is there any chance you could be subconsciously attracting these challenges yourself, perhaps by feeling you don't really deserve to be free of the previous bad situation? I could be totally wrong but it is often the case that people who manage to escape abusive scenarios battle with guilty feelings for escaping and feeling like they don't really deserve their new freedom. Perhaps just something to think about xx

This is very true Karen probably no reason to panic especially if you live in a rural area these things do happen my parents house is very clean and tidy but come winter there are always mice that come in from the fields because the house is warm and it's almost impossible to deal every single entrance, they can get in through even the smallest of gaps!

Meanwhile, good on you for getting yourself out of that abusive living situation!

One's nervous system is in hyperdrive after such a move, and things take a while to settle down, so be gentle with yourself in every way for as long as it takes.

(I once had a plague of slugs in the bathroom the night after a house move... freaked me right out. It was like a horror movie... They just went away. It was so weird!)

My favourite calming place is the bathtub. Stake your claim to wherever yours is, and take yourself there often; it's your house now! And if you freak out again, be nice to yourself and know it will pass, and that the problem will be solvable, in time, with some help.

(Ants don't like lemon oil, or lemons? I guess, or eucalyptus oil, from memory. I can't remember what I do when they decide to march into my kitchen once every three or four years, so I have to google it each time. Think it involved cottonwool balls and lemon oil!)
