Here goes with this week’s countdown
Climbing to 10: Ask for a biscuit – she’ll definitely give you one just to keep you quiet.
Non mover at 9: Take all the cushions off the sofa and chairs and then jump on the sofas and chairs (even though you're not really allowed).
Dropping to 8: Find the most precarious place imaginable to stand – this will give her a real fright when she finds you.
New entry at 7: Ask for another biscuit. This is a good time to push your luck and ask for a chocolate one.
Climbing to 6: Take all the pillows and covers off the beds and then jump on the beds (again, not really allowed, but nobody looking).
Straight in at 5: Take your trousers, socks and pants off. Hey, why not?
No change at 4: Put on your muddy wellies.
This week’s highest entry at 3: Take all the jigsaws out of the toy cupboard and, with the help of your brother, scatter all the pieces all over the kitchen floor.
Non mover at 2: Go for a wee, but miss the toilet. Then pull all the loo paper off the roll, or just tear it into lots and lots of tiny pieces.
Still at the top spot for the third week: Shout “Muummmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee” repeatedly in your loudest and whiniest voice for the entire duration of the phone call.
Parents beware: Using the phone can seriously damage your house.
