THE EASTER EGG HUNT

THIS BUNNY PROMISED ME HE WOULD VISIT MY HOME IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS.

THIS BUNNY PROMISED  HE WOULD VISIT MY HOME IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS.

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 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-nilly!  (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.

ONLY BILLS  AND SPIDERS!

Hmm, we sat down and had a little think, (like my cousin  Pooh ) and Milly thought that  the eggs could be in the wee garden shed under the balcony.

Nuffink….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.  Looked in lots of shrubbery;

SEE ANYTHING MILLY?

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 chocolate  goodies  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 EGGS!!

WE FOUND THEM!!

WE FOUND THEM!!

 

HAVE YOU EVERY BEEN INVOLVED IN AN EASTER EGG HUNT?  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!
