Ted ventures out...

Phew, Ted has had a giddy morning. When he opened the curtains this morning he couldn't believe his eyes. Everything was white. He thought it was quite beautiful until he felt how cold it was, and wet, and windy too.

Not owning a good pair of waterproof boots was a small problem he managed to overcome by borrowing a small boat from a tall boy. The tall boy told him to be very careful with the little red boat because it came all the way from France. Ted was very careful indeed. In fact he only sailed a foot from the patio doors because it looked quite choppy out in the big wide world.

After his brave and daring maiden voyage Ted retired to the safety of the door mat and watched the daft wet dog play in the snow. He seemed to be throwing it in the air and catching it in his mouth. Ted didn't know what to make of that.

Ted felt that was quite enough of an adventure for one day and settled down on the sofa with his blanket. A little snooze he thinks, and a marmite sandwich for elevenses.

  4. Ted was very brave to attempt such a hair raising and treacherous adventure...that dog would have made the stuffing come out of him! I am glad he made it back to safety with stuffing intact.

    1. Yes, you are absolutely right. The sight of Harvey's charity shop teddy is making Ted feel extremely queasy.
