I'm reminded of Enid Blyton's Toyland stories of Noddy (a toy store carver) and Big Ears (the friendly gnome, who lived in a toadstool house outside of Toyland and was Noddy's helper and father figure.)
So I hope it was only Spring cleaning chores and the home is back together again.
A really lovely Spring haiku that brought back my own associations with the wondrous world or worlds of toadstools in woodland and forests.
the rhythm of rain
a toad sleeps deep
with her moon
