Toffee's Toy Story






 

The other day the old man and old woman were having a big tidy-up. The old man looked worried as he always does when someone called The-Mother-In-Law visits. She's very strict and she frightens him.

They were gathering my toys together into a cardboard box and I heard the old woman say: "What on earth does she do with all those toys we buy her?" 

She tilted the box and few furry mice and a half-chewed cardboard bird rolled to one side. She shrugged and carried on with the housework. I closed my eyes and started to dream about real mice and birds.

Suddenly my pleasant reverie was broken by a yell.

"TOFFEE!" 

What was wrong? I thought I'd better go and see so I strolled into the living room… and the picture above is very similar to what I saw. The old woman didn't have her camera ready (unusual; she's usually got it practically stuck up my nose or up my rear end) so she found this on the internet to show all her friends on Facebook. 

Personally, I think that's a sheer invasion of privacy. I AM NOT AMUSED.

  2. Toffee, you must train your humans to sweep under the couch more often!
    Look at all that good stuff, that you can now play with again...and push under the couch...again!

    1. Exactly. I don't know why I get the blame for their bad housework. Humph.

  3. That is like having Christmas come around! We have been redoing the bedroom and built a walk in wardrobe/dressing area. When the old wardrobes came out we found 27 rolled up balls of paper under them that Eric had lost when playing with them. Yes I did count them and kept them. I haven't the heart to throw them out as they had been there for over 9 years!
