Normally when my mum goes to work it's time for Josie and me to catch up on our beauty sleep as it's all peaceful. Then we can be sure to be full of beans when she comes home and needs entertaining.
Yesterday we hardly got any sleep at all. Upstairs was all crash, bang, whallop! Surely they found the source of our leak with all that.
When my mum came home we were saying to her, "You won't believe..." and she was saying "You won't believe what's outside - pretty much all the kitchen." They had dismantled the units and they were all piled up in the garden.
We are getting a new neighbour and it seems the landlord has taken the chance of upstairs being empty to do some refurb. I hope our new neighbour likes cats a lot but doesn't have one; my mum hopes they are quiet - but agrees liking cats wouldn't be a bad thing. All the best people like cats!
I hope we get more sleep today though.

I hope! I have been being helpful.
On Friday my mum was cleaning out the fridge and Josie and I helped by hanging around offering to eat up anything she found in there that would be nice in a cat's tummy. She kept pushing us away but we like to help.
Then she made some more Christmas cards. I was relieved as she didn't seem to have made enough for all my Catster friends to have one each.
But apparently these were for her friends instead and I did try and help but she was all, "Mind the glue Toby" and "Those are still drying Toby" and "Keep out of the glitter Toby" and "I SAID - mind the glue Toby" so not much fun at all.
She says we'll put a picture of Josie and my card on my page and wish you all a Happy Christmas that way as she wouldn't have enough stamps for all of you.
Yesterday was a bit warmer and I think Spring may be back and I did lots of running about in the garden which I liked. Mum says it isn't but she's glad I did the running as that makes me a nicer cat in the evening. I don't know what she means by that.
And they did come and look at the wet from upstairs. It's seeping rather than pouring so we have dry paws but it's obviously not a good thing. It continues to seep but hopefully will be fixed soon.

That remains the dilemma. I had some good suggestions from my Catster pals yesterday. I am pretty sure that one big eyed look at Sandy Claws and all will be forgiven. That works on my mum every time. But what if he didn't bring my presents at all? He'll be thinking how cute I am and what I deserve and all those treats and toys will be sitting on a bench in the North Pole being enjoyed by the Elves.
Of course he'll have Josie's toys and stuff with him. She is pretty much always a good cat so maybe he'll give me hers.
Actually - even if he doesn't - what's hers is mine. I was so relieved when I worked that one out. I can be naughty as I like and Josie can be nice and I'll get good stuff from Sandy Claws because I'll take hers.
I actually realised this around 2am.
I woke my mum up to tell her all about it. I was so pleased with myself and purring away as I wanted to explain my theory then and there before I forgot it. My mum wasn't very nice so maybe she won't get anything either and we'll all share Josie's!
Now we're just all relying on Josie to stay nice.
Today we're having a happy day. We have had water coming through from upstairs - again! - and mum is staying home as someone is coming to see what's going on. They reckon they can't see anything up there but we surely can down here. Mum doesn't see that as a happy day but any day she is home is a happy one for us.
