Mum had stuff with her when she came home from work last night. One was an odd looking tube with a plastic bunny on top.
"What's that?" I asked, giving it a good sniff. I could smell all sorts of things but nothing conclusive.
"It's my Easter tombola prize. There were chocolate eggs and Easter cookies but I won the prize that Josie will like the most. Bubbles."
She is right there. I don't trust bubbles at all. Mum blows on a stick and they just appear out of nothing and then they float about a bit and disappear. What sorcery is this?! Josie gets very excited when she sees bubbles. She chats to them as if they were birds and then sets about to despatch each and every one with a timely paw swipe.
So Josie and mum played bubble chasing and I watched from a safe distance.
Then I sniffed mum's other thing. "Is this one for me if that one's for Josie?"
"Sadly no," mum said, "that's my chocolate egg prize for coming second in the egg decorating competition".
"Did you do any work at work today at all?" - what with tombolas and decorating eggs it doesn't sound like there was much time. She looked a bit embarrassed. "Some".
Mum has promised to go out today and get some of my favourite treats as she and Josie both got a nice thing yesterday. Today is a happy day for all of us. The sun is shining, it's a little bit warmer - the snow is gone - and no office for mum today as it's a bank holiday so she'll be here to pander to our every whims all day. Hoorah!!
and Happy Easter to all my friends.

What's a tombola?
Oh Xena and I like bubbles, I really love them, Zeke and Kody do the same as you watch from a distance...Mom puts our bubble wand in front of a fan and boy you should see how many bubbles there are...
Hope you got some good time with Mom, you got your special treat today..
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
We're with you, we can't stand bubbles! Mom got some catnip scented bubbles and thought it would be fun, but honestly we were traumatized. Mom hasn't tried it since.
We've never had bubbles. I want to try some.
HAPPY EASTER to you, Josie and your Mom.
I'm glad your Mum is going back out to get you a treat. That's just fair!
Happy Easter Toby.
Hi Monster I had to ask and mum says a tombola is like a raffle only they choose the winning tickets in advance so you get your prize right away. Sounds like fun but i would want to win all the prizes!! purrs Toby
