When I opened my eyes, the first thing I spotted was the Mole stuck in the nearest tree. His balloon was caught on a branch and had already begun to deflate.
“Help! Oi don’t wanna go to the Moon!”
“Heh, heh. Serves you right!”
“Get Oi down!”
“All right, all right. Keep your fur on.”
Pigeons aren’t very good at untying knots, so I just gave the balloon another peck, and down it went.
Luckily the Mole fell in the birdbath, so he didn’t hurt himself, just had a nice cold bath.
“Oi hates baths!”
“Well you smell a lot better now, Mole!”
The Mole didn’t reply – he just jumped into the flower border and wasted no time getting all grubby again. He even forgot about his James Blunt CD.
I wonder if I could ‘persuade’ one of the local moggies to give me some money for it?

"Mole! Where are you?
"Here I be!"
"Where've you been?"
"Shopping! Oi've got some great bargains!"
"Oi've got a big balloon to un-stick you from moi tunnel, you stoopid pigeon!"
"Great! Get me out of here, quick! I'm starving!"
"Right. Oi've already tied the balloon to your tail feathers..."
"Ooh, so that's what that funny tickly feeling was! I thought it might be
"Now Oi'll start burrowin'at this end."
"It's...it's working...I'm being pulled back-.."
"Hurray! With one giant leap, this pigeon is free! Thanks, Mole! You'd better have your balloon back now - don't want the other birds laughing at me!"
"Hurr hurr! Too late for that! They've been laughin' at you all week!"
"Huh! Er...Mole...What other bargains did you get? And what did you use for money?"
"The gold, silly!"
"WHAT! All of it? Oh no! Surely you didn't use all our treasure to buy one balloon?"
"Course not! Oi'm not stoopid! Oi got another bargain as well!"
"Crumbs, oh golly, oh gosh...please tell me it's not true...what was your bargain then, Mole? A Ferrari? A supercomputer? Easter eggs?"
"Much better than any of those!"
"A James Blunt CD!"
