It’s summer in Sydney and the schools have closed for the year, businesses are closing for their Christmas break and everyone is on holiday.
So grot boy and I shouldn’t have been surprised when the teddies insisted that they be able to have a holiday too.
“It’s the time of the year to eat lots and laze around napping,” Bobby told us. “I think I’ve done quite enough work for the year.”
Dwight loves parties. “I can dress up every night in a different summer frock and wear my best jewellery and favourite spangly sandals,” she told us. “I hope I win the prize for the best dressed bear at the summer ball.”
“I love parties,” Hephie added. “I can make lots and lots of new friends and we all have heaps of fun together.”
“The best thing about parties is the grog,” Ccino said. “There are all sorts of different drinks and no-one notices if I have a sip (or two or three) from their glass,” he admitted.
“Food, parties, napping! That sounds like a good idea,” grot boy said. Then he asked me “Don’t you think we should have a summer holiday? We can all go to the beach, the teddies can build sand castles while I have a nap in the sun.”
“Oh! Alright!” I pretended to reluctantly agree while secretly being pleased.
“Don’t forget to say ‘thank you’ to all our friends who have liked our adventures during the year,” the teddies chorused, before signing off for their summer holiday.
