We've been egged!!

Is there anything more annoying than walking outside and finding your house has been egged!!

No wait: I wrote that wrong. Is there anything  more EXCITING than walking outside and finding your house has been egged!!

A note was left on our door saying we'd been egged and 14 eggs had been hidden around our yard. By torchlight our excited little munchkins hopped around the bushes and balcony furniture (which is waiting to be reinstated once the freshly oiled floor boards are sufficiently dried and ready) to find the treasures. Each one of the fourteen plastic eggs was filled with sweets.

It was a fantastic treat for the kids and one we now get to extend to another family after we re-fill the eggs. So not only have my kids enjoyed the thrill of the surprise and hunt (and eating the lollies), they now have the additional thrill of filling the eggs and then hiding them for some other kids.

What an awesome idea!

We don't know who our anonymous stealth bunnies were, but we're very, very happy they hopped over to our place.

And now to plan our raid for tomorrow night!!

The note read:

Look at that! You've just been EGGed!
But do not be alarmed.
We came, we dropped, we ran away...
Your house, it was not harmed.

So what is this before you now?
Just an early Easter Surprise.
Be quick and look around your yard....
Fourteen EGGS lay in disguise.

A secret friend has just dropped by
To share some spring time cheer.
So now you're it! It's now your turn
To EGG a house that's near.

Select a friend, or two or three...
Gather some EGGs for each.
Be sly and hide them, knock and flee!
Leave this message at arm's reach.

Hang a poster at your door
And now you task's complete.
Day 'til Easter aren't much more....
Aren't surprises sweet!

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
