1:30 a.m. "Miaow, I'm hungry, please get up and shake my food bowl (because although there is food in it, it tastes so much better once shaken)."
2:00 a.m. "Miaow, I'm thirsty, and there's no milk left, and water isn't good enough for me. I'm a princess you know."
2:30 a.m. "Miaow, I need some attention. Please let me in so I can jump on and off the bed a few times."
3:30 a.m. "Miaow, poo time, please get up and clean out the litter tray because it now contains kitten poo, and is therefore not clean enough for a princess like me."
7:00 a.m. "Miaow, I'm hungry, my kittens are hungry, miaow miaow miaow, get up now and feed us ALL."
10:00 a.m. "Miaow, what do you mean you have a deadline today? My kittens want to play on your laptop!"
10:30 a.m. "Miaow, I don't understand what you mean by 'get the f^,# out you mangy kittens' and no, I don't know either how they managed to press the hibernate button on your laptop twice in 10 minutes."
11:30 a.m. "Prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.........."

And so the cats are all asleep, which means I should be able to work on my assignment, but I haven't had time for breakfast yet, and there is a kitten asleep on my leg, and I don't want to disturb him because I'm scared he'll wake up and start hurtling around again, but anyway I need the loo so I'll have to get up at some point, but it's worth hanging on as long as possible to enjoy this blissful moment of PEACE AND QUIET which makes me want to join in and have a nap, but I HAVE A DEADLINE.....!!!!!!!.
If only it was always like this.
