Was it a mouse? We kept hearing the squeak - then it would stop. Every time it started Josie and I were looking all round to see what it could be. Mum noticed our heads going and she started looking all round to. Squeak. Squeak. But we couldn't see it so she went back to watching TV.
Then she said she thought she might know what it was. She was watching the Lympic Gymnasts and every time the men did a really big swing on the high bar - squeak. You would have thought they would put some oil on it. We are pretty sure it was coming from the TV as it seemed to match now we were looking and when they went away to leap and bounce in other places it stopped.
No mouse then.
All that flipping about looked fun. I asked my mum, "How come you never bounce like that?" "Have you any idea how hard that is?" "Not really. We've never tried."
As my mum didn't want to do it we waited until she had gone to bed and Josie and I tried to re-create the amazing leaps and spins that we had seen. Mum did come and ask us to do it all a bit more quietly but we were being quiet so she could sleep. It was the furniture that we banged into that was being noisy.

Hi Toby! Is your mom going to any of the Lympic events? We've been watching and cheer on England whenever we see them!
If they oiled the bars in gymnastics they would all fall off. Mind you it would be funny for us to watch not so funny for the competitors. I know the noise you're talking about and it was driving me nuts well mum can do that too.
MOL - we heard that noise too!
I slept through the squeaking.
Ooooh no mousie. How sad. I love mousies. We love Gabby Douglas too. Flying squirrel is her nick name. Josie and you can have your own Lympics at your house. One can win the gold fish and the other the silver fish.
