A Christmas mummy in our bathroom!

“Mummy, Tinkles needs a blindfold back on!”

This morning, Tinkles was found wrapped up like a mummy, sitting on the towel rack in the main bathroom.

Above her head was a piece of paper asking a question…

And besides Tinkles was the answer…

Tinkles the Christmas Elf wrapped as a mummy, because they are good wrappers

My son in particular enjoyed the play on words to create the joke. And made him remember to finish reading Bab Sharkey and the animal mummies (third in a series by Andrew Hensen and Jessica Roberts – they are funny and a great read for mid to primary school kids).

But back to the greeting I hadn’t expected from my daughter this morning… Apparently Tinkles sitting in the bathroom was a bit much for the kids and their desire for privacy! My son showered in the en suite instead of the bathroom (lucky he had an option!) and then I covered Tinkles’ eyes so my daughter could use the bathroom! I’m sure Tinkles was just looking for an interesting place to tell her joke…
