Toby's Diary

More signs of Spring

Yesterday we had the big furniture switcheroo. Mum swaps our bed and the armchair over. Our bed had been by the radiator to enjoy the warmth but now that's off mum has moved our bed over to the window so we can sunbathe.

Josie likes to ride on the chair while mum pushes it. The other exciting thing is seeing what's been lurking underneath.

Mum picked up our bed and exclaimed in delight, "My puzzle book! I wondered where that had gone. I lost that months ago." Then, "How the heck did it get there?"

She moved our bed out of the way and put the puzzle book on the sofa. Then started to push the chair. And there came a very different type of exclamation.

"What is that?" She peered from a safe distance. "Is it alive?"

Josie wasn't going to leave the safe vantage of her chair to find out. Mum got the broom and gave it a gentle poke with the handle. It rolled rather than walked suggesting an inanimate object and mum dared get closer. Then she laughed.

"So that's where your grape went Toby!" It was a black grape so now being rather shrivelled it did look somewhat beetle like. She had pushed her hand under the chair in the search but I had knocked it paw length under.

That has now gone to be compost.

Our other sign of Spring was our first indoor ant. At about this time every year they come and scout around and mum stomps on them until they realise this isn't a good idea. We have no idea how they get in. This one was cheekily crawling across mum's keyboard. So I am now on ant spotting duty as mum says there'll probably be more.

Sounds like fun at your place. Find long lost puzzle books. Attack of the kill grape. Great to hear you're getting some sun and you can sun bathe.

MOL, cats like puzzles too. Toby, you should keep the grape. In a few more weeks it will turn into a raisin.
