It's still warm here. Mum doesn't sleep so well so we leave her to it. She should try the whole sleeping thing with a fur coat on!
Last night she got in from her dance class and sais she would open all the doors and windows for half an hour before going to bed. You can imagine how enthusiastically Josie and I took to that.
Outside I found a tiny little baby frog. The last one I found was massive but surely mum couldn't object to this minute one. She would hardly know he was there. Best of all she couldn't stop me. There could be no misunderstandings by the magic door, I just walked right in and put him down on the carpet.
He was so small it took my mum a moment to realise what he was. She shrieked in excitement and then joined in chasing him.
"See how much fun it is!"
But when she caught him instead of putting him back down and sharing she took him outside and dropped him.
"Don't worry mum. I'll find him for you. I won't go to bed until he's safely back indoors"
Oddly my mum shut the back door but I was undeterred. Josie helped but we couldn't see him. Mum kept calling is saying she needed to sleep and couldn't if we were outdoors but a promise is a promise. You would have thought, given that it was her fault he went missing, that she would have been a bit more supportive.
After about an hour I did come in to give her an update but she flipped the thing on my door so I couldn't go out again. One cat to go. Josie said it was so deliciously cool rolling on the concrete, no way was she coming inside.
Mum went to bed saying that she had left the door so Josie could come in but I don't think anyone was fooled. Every ten minutes or so she would get up and try and call Josie in and Josie would look at her and roll and I would try make good my escape.
It was pretty late it is true by the time the three of us were all safely indoors for the night. She says it's lack of sleep but I think she's regretting her foolishness in dropping the frog. Maybe I'll find him again this morning and make her happy.
Oh and mum says one of her friends was at the dress rehearsal for the Lympics Opening Ceremony on Wednesday and says it is amazing but wouldn't tell her anything at all about it so it will be a surprise.

Hi Toby. Please tell your Mom to turn her cold air blowy thing on. We've had ours on since May I think. Hope you'll find that frog again for you Mom. That sounds like so much fun to play with. I am looking forward to the Oh!Lympics.
I think your real name is Trouble.
