Child’s Treasure

Beneath the loose floorboard
an egg box treasure chest
reveals
a bent penny washer
a hosepipe adaptor
a pink badge with a star on it
and the keys from the bathroom that have been missing for weeks.

  1. That’s a great little snapshot 🙂

    As a child, I really loved loose floorboards. My father used to buy land for redevelopment, and I really enjoyed following the workmen around to see what treasures they unearthed as they tore up floorboards in old houses. Of course, these days a child wouldn’t be allowed to follow workmen around for health and safety considerations, etc., etc.

    • Moolie definitely gets to play in my building site – All floors have to have a secret compartment built in to them for hiding chocolate and sparkly treasure. I am working at the front room at the moment and we have already decided where the secret compartment can be so it doesn’t get in the way of pipes or wires!
