Strange noises in the night.

Roll, roll, tap, tap, tap!

One night around three o/clock in the morning, I woke up to a strange noise.

wife playing 'potato- ball'. patsch !
A small potato must have rolled under one of the kitchen cupboards without us noticing. Mumpfi found the item and off she went to play with it.
We heard loud complaints when we threw the potato into the kitchen bin, but finally the cat followed us back to the bedroom.
About an hour later we heard some terrific noise from the kitchen. We both ran there, and saw what Mumpfi presented us with - she had managed to open the door under the sink, to pull out the bucket, thrown it over, and there she was sitting on the kitchen floor playing 'potato-ball'
That was the end of a good night's sleep.
