Karma Kermit Saturday Surprise

Another Saturday and lots of reasons to smile ... or not !

I choose to smile and see the glass half full. It's been a hard few weeks and there has been plenty of disappointments. I will blog about them later.

Thursday 26th February we headed 4.5 hrs to Western NSW and the farm. The Brothers were so excited to see the tractors, cows and motorbikes.

The weather was hot but no were near as humid as Sydney so it doesn't feel so bad.

Alas, I had limited opportunity to connect you my internet community. I briefly enjoyed using Mc Donald's free wifi ...yay but my battery died !!.I wrote this last Saturday actually but re edited it.

Anyway on to something to make you smile because it is Smiley Saturday.

Early last Saturday morning I was woken by the Brothers sleeping in our room at the farm.It was pitch black. They nursed and went back to sleep (thank Godness)

I went to the loo to do what you normally do.

It was very dark but I didn't turn the light so as not to assult my senses.

I sat, quickly, I had to go :)

Suddenly, I felt 'something' moist brush my 'hoo haa' ... I screamed, albeit a muffled scream, and jumped up ( I didn't want to have anyone else come rushing to my aid, LOL, as I ripped my undies and PJ's bottoms off) I knew it was a Karma (aka Kermit) toilet frog sent to pay me back.

I turned the light on , turned my glazed eyes on my crumpled pants in the corner ...I picked them up and shook them . I shut the loo lid . The big 'jolly' green giant Kermit jumped at me.

I was pre-warned about about frogs in the other laundry toilet. They are very naughty frogs who unravel the toilet roll so they have to put an elastic band on it LOL to stop them.At night they also put a large piece of cardboard on the toilet pan to stop them coming out. cue ...twilight zone music

Of course I ran to find my camera .
He was headed back to his hideout ...

After I snapped a few photos I weighted the loo lid down to stop him giving me another surprise later. He was searching for a way back in ... I went back to bed.

I couldn't find him at 8am. I then saw a gap between the seat and the toilet bowl.I shrugged and thought to myself 'tomorrow I am turning the light on'.

I had a shower about 9am I reached for the hair conditioner ... Kermit jumped . It was too close in the shower , I screamed .I went to the door , yelled for my DH to come get Kermit . Kermit was relocated to the water trough ...though I doubt he'll stay.

Ps ...Soon after I took this picture one of the other boys J (7 ) found another frog, 'Freddo' in the toilet. He joined Kermit in the water trough. Later that night 6 kids (aged 2, 2, 3,6, 7 & 10) kids had fun lifting the frogs out out the stick ... against our instructions. But the frogs didn't jump even when given a chance.Sadly the next morning one of them had 'croaked' and the other was missing ? Don't know if it was Kermit or Freddo.

Pss -It's been a busy week and I am back working two days plus had lots of things keeping from visiting your blogs, commenting and returning comments.I've been feeling a little low and flat ! Iwas in a slump .No joke but I'm feeling a bit more 'rounded' again.

I'm so sorry had to clear my google reader too,largely unread , -so if anything important or significant happened to you last week ...drop me a link line so I can go catch up on your news.

Before I go ...a favour to ask I did see another of my twin blogs friends Amy @ Double Delight is resurrecting her blog after almost a year so please go encourage her - She has something very special, humbling and exciting to share. Go cheer her on.

Hi there! I rewound this post at the Fibro on 29.1.2011

Quite ironic & appropriately since we had different frogs but still in the loo at the farm on the other side of the creek -  So the last 3 days we had many brown frogs to extract from the cool toilet LoL - of course by WE I don't mean ME.

Never miss a post

How you didn't scream the house down, I'll never know!

allison tait said...

LOL. That's the last thing you need in the dark. But better than a redback, that other bastion of the toilet seat.

Thanks for Rewinding at the Fibro today! :-)

Cate said...

Oh those froggies are sooooo cute! I would love to get some of those in my loo! All we ever get are mozzies and daddy long legs! LOL
have a great weekend

@tropical mum - I started to scream like a banshee one note 'ar' ... then remembered I had my pants down LOL.My FIL , and a few other male relos were in the house too

@Al - we had a lizard the other day ...I told my nieces and they wouldn't go back in till we checked it was gone.The frogs were bad enough my brother got 5 out.

@Cate - the green ones are cute but the brown ones NOT little fellows refsued to use two of the toilets with frogs when they ahd to sit ...lucky Grandpa had a 3rd toilet in his ensuite.

Lady Estrogen said...

Ahh... although scary at first, I would have been in heaven. Love those frogs! lol.
