Mother's Day. . .

Shhh... Teddy's sleeping. Yesterday we had a Teddy Bear's tea party in the garden. We had cupcakes and proper tea in china tea cups. Mum made us some of Nana's special cucumber sandwiches and eggy sandwiches and my favourite, sugar sandwiches... cut up in triangles and the crusts cut off. 

Everyone was having a lovely time until, Teddy's uncle Ralph turned up. They don't get on. There was a lot of blah blah blah, then Uncle Ralph started shouting that he was going to send some Heavies in to lurk under my bed and in my cupboard and Teddy got all red in the face and BOOM, CRUNCH, CAPOUW!!!...Uncle Ralph and Teddy were bear fighting. When they had finished, they were both covered in mud and grass stains... (some of Mum's flowers got a bit squashed... oops!) 

Uncle Ralph went home and Mum put Teddy in the washing machine, so now he smells like clean sheets. Anyway Teddy stayed up all night and kept an eye out to make sure no Heavies moved in while I was sleeping. Nothing and no-one get's past Teddy!

I think Teddy and I are going to have a quiet day today and cuddle up with Mum on the sofa and watch  Princess stories on the goggle box... 

Happy Mother's Day if it's Mother's Day where you are... ( I have to wait till the End of May here in France)...and pop over to Sunday Sketches and join in. That's all the Fun and Nonsense from me today xx

I didn't realise you were in France. So hapy mother's day to you for May. I like the Ted fight, Lottie would have been having a little sneaky look, hoping little Ted would win. Where was the pink elephant?
