When the cat goes away the mice get revenge

Standard

There were 5 in the bed and the little one said; roll over, roll over

So they all rolled over and one fell out

And went to sleep in a different bed

There were 4 in the bed and the little one said; roll over, roll over

So they all rolled over and one clung to the edge of the mattress

And put one foot on the cold floor

There were 4½ in the bed and the little one climbed over the big one and shouted at the middle one

And the middle one cried

And the little one begged for milk

And the big one grumbled

And the really big one reminded them all that it was 5 am and it was in fact her bed in the first place.

Lesson learnt: Don’t presume that you can get away with having a little holiday sans childers without some kind of payback, even 3 weeks after your return.
