At night my mum grumbles and squiggles and wriggles and makes it very hard for me and Josie to sleep so we knew the time had come to take action. She does use a water spray as I've mentioned before so water must be good.
"What if we tipped a whole glassful on her bed?" I asked Josie.
"Not our glass," she said hurriedly.
"Of course not. We need that. Her glass."
Things didn't go quite as smoothly as we had hoped. I had intended a dramatic flume of water over all her pillows but it just kind of tipped over and got lodged between the bed and the bedside table. We weren't even sure any had got on the bed.
When mum came home she didn't see and she wasn't thirsty at bedtime so didn't notice. Oh well, I thought, we tried.
Then she snuggled herself down to sleep, slid a hand under her pillow and "What?!" She sat up, turned the light on, moved the pillow - and yes, we had given the corner of the bed and under the pillow a good dousing.
Her verdict - a damp pillow is good to sleep on when you're hot but she isn't sure the it does the feathers any good so please can we not do that again.
In other news they have accidentally called the new Prince George. We've had rather a lot of King Georges so I'm pretty sure they had intended to say Toby which would be unique and the first but it's too late now.
This morning it is raining which is prime frog hunting weather so I'm off to try and catch one.

Hope you catch a frog!
King George has a regal sound to it. He is going to be the future king of England. Mum wanted the Alexander as the first name. Well mate you'll have to wait for next royal baby and hope it's another boy and they call it Toby.
George is so old-fashioned and boring. Good trick with the water, Toby.
Poor kid. Who wants to be called George? Nobody I know. Maybe Toby will be his nickname.
