We know when people are coming to stay as mum clears everything out of the spare room and Josie helped mum make up the bed. Oh - mum says chasing your own tail while someone tries to make up a bed around you isn't helping. Josie tried to look contrite but couldn't quite suppress her glee. She did have a marvellous time.
The guests arrived on Saturday night. It was one of mum's old college friend's son and husband. The son, Matt, was competing in a Strong Man competition locally on Sunday. They wanted him to get a good night's sleep before.
People who do Strong Man stuff are ...well... big. All those muscles. And fathers of people who do Strong Man stuff aren't small either. Our flat isn't so big and there was a lot of people getting in each other's way. I was glad to be small enough to slide round them all.
What I didn't like was Matt did sleep in the spare room and his dad on a mattress in the sitting room so all the doors were shut. Mum doesn't normally close doors much and I like to roam at will.
What I did like is that Matt may be able to lift cars and pull trucks but he can also give a friendly cat a pretty good head scritch!
Our flat is all back to normal now. I kept well out of the way while that restiration was going on but Josie helped, despite mum's ingratitude of before. She's very forgiving luckily for mum. And mum said "Helping isn't chasing...oh what's the use!!"

ConCATulations on being chosen as a DDP today Tobster! And Concatulations on your Diary of the Day award last week. The Diary Gal likes your Diary just as much as I do. I LOVE reading your Diary, efurry chance I get! Enjoy your day in the spotlight, you deserve it!
Belated Concats dear Toby. Oh, a strong man who can lift cars? May I borrow him sometime to lift the neighbor's huge doggy up and put him down far, far away?
Chasing your tail on the guest bed is making excellent use of the guest bed. Nicely done by Josie.
We heard that Matt did well in his competition. He has a big dog (a Malamute - mum described how big that is and I never want to meet him) so I'll ask him about your neighbour's dog next time he comes.
I don't get the chasing tail thing but Josie loves it!
