Well I’d been looking forward to the Easter Bunny visiting for weeks, but on Saturday everything started to go wrong. See, we were in Sydney visiting my Granny Jean when it started raining so hard that Dr Bob decided we shouldn’t drive home because it was a bit dangerous; also he had some painting to do. Naturally Granny was delighted, but I wasn’t!
Anyway we finally got going on Sunday morning. When I got home to the Blue Mountains my friend Milly said she had seen the Bunny hopping down the lane with his basket, but she couldn’t find any Easter eggs. Oh my word, what if he had hopped right past us and on to Sandra and Paul’s house??
I organized a proper search because Milly is inclined to act willy-milly! (haha, that’s a joke) we checked the letter box first…nuffink, and then Milly thought of Pauline’s big copper pot. Only dead mozzies and cobwebs there. Dr Bob had to come and get us down.
Hmm, we sat down and had a little think, (like my distant cousin Pooh ) and Milly thought that the eggs could be in the wee garden shed under the balcony.
Nuffink again….only rubbishy things and rusty garden shears that Pauline clearly hasn’t been using enough. As you can imagine we were getting REALLY worried by now. We looked in lots of shrubbery;
Nope…only slugs and snails. Could they have eaten the chocolate?? 😎 I asked Dr Bob and he said no, but POSSUMS WOULD. OMG! 😫 We have lots of possums and they are always starving. It was a dreadful thing to contemplate but……
Milly started to cry and I felt bad because I’d already scoffed lots of Easter eggs at Grannie Jean’s house. And then…you know what? We heard someone whisper; ‘ PSST! FROG HOLLOW’ So down the steps we went to the dark and mysterious bit of the garden. Well there was a fairy standing outside Froggie’s house . I don’t believe in fairies really, but there she was. AND SO WERE OUR EASTER EGGS!!
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN INVOLVED IN THE HUNT FOR EASTER EGGS? IT CAN BE EXTREMELY STRESSFUL, BUT SORT OF EXCITING. YOU CAN LEAVE ME A MESSAGE IF YOU LIKE DON’T FORGET TO DO THE ANTI-SPAM SUM!
