All I want is a good nights sleep

Morning!

Picture the scene.


It's 01:30 in the morning and your tucked up in bed when you're woken by a thud, followed by a scrambling sound, followed by something jumping on you as you struggle to make sense of what's going on.


This has been my very early routine for the past six months ever since Baby and Sweetie moved in. They are manic house mates but crack me up and I've surprised myself by how much I've fallen in love with them.


This was the state of my work room this morning after the whirlwind of early morning frenzied activity.  





Not a single rug in this house stays flat any more! 

As I type this they are outside in the sun terrorizing the dog next door...poor thing. 



***Tomorrow is the day that we all head to Hereford to watch my sister carry the Olympic torch. If it's on the news look out for us we'll be the ones with the big banner!!! :) ***

    1. Claire you can not imagine how proud we are. I start to well up every time I think of it and my stomach churns, anyone would think I was doing it x

  2. How fantastic is that - your sister with the Olympic torch not the cats destroying your house! We have five cats and they can make a spectacular mess when they put their minds to it! Their best trick though is to try and sit on the newspaper when you're trying to read it!

  3. Hi June, I think cats go to cat training school to be taught the best ways to get human attention ;)

    as for Jo and the torch, well, what more can I say? Except that I foresee a long blog post looming on the horizon!!!

  4. That sounds sooooooo familiar. Marmalade is just now, after four years, calming down but I still get the early morning wake up on the odd nights I am home not working nights.

    Hope it all goes well tomorrow and your sist has a lovely time.

    Take care.

  6. Before I scrolled down to the photos I was a bit concerned to know who exactly Baby and Sweetie were!!!
    Enjoy your time with your sister and The Torch. My brother and Aunt carried it in the 2000 Olympics in Australia!!

    1. Hi Trudy, your comment made me laugh. I can see why you would be a little concerned, perhaps that explains why my post has had so many views!! ;)

    1. I think it must be like having a baby in the house. I don't think it would be as bad if there was just one but they seem to trigger one another off!!
