Bedtime bedlam.

This little imp is a very, very regular visitor at our house. She pops in precisely 5 minutes after bedtime and makes havoc, rattle-bing-banging her way through bedrooms -- sometimes for an hour or more. (she's very inconsiderate!)

Strangely, she avoids our cottage completely. Only there do we find peace from her rabble-rousing.

Perhaps it's the hours of squirt gun wars, frog-catching, fort-building and marshmallow-roasting that scare her off?

Or the outhouse. Could be the outhouse. That keeps even the hardiest of souls away.
