" How come I have to help put the tables out? " Complains Toby
" Stop moaning!" sighs Percy " you could be doing the washing up !"
"Really! Wow lets get more tables then " says Toby gleefully
"This is the last one, so it wasn't so bad eh!" Percy smiles " of course we have to put them away at the end too!"
" What! Why can't .."
"Washing up? " Percy reminds him
Toby stops his moaning and pulls the table into place.
The children are gathering to taste the goodies.
Martha and Claudia are wondering if they could start with one of the ice cream sundaes and work their way back to eating a sandwich?
Ragnor and Robin are deep in discussion about whether Ragnor, could also be a descendant of the Ragnor Lothbrok from the Viking series!
"Would you like a cup of tea ? " Hattie asks Magda, who nods " I'll be mum then" she says and grabs hold of the tea pot ready to pour.
Arabella is guiding the new girl, Monica, through the celebration.
" Yes that's correct our beloved queen Elizabth has been on the throne since 1952! So that's seventy years of service to the country"
" Goodness the poor woman must be so tired! " I'd not want to have to work for seventy years!! gasped Monice getting a little worried
" It's because she came to the throne so young " continues Arabella" It's such a shame that her dear husband Prince Philip passed away last year, I'm sure she is feeling the loss even more at this time" says Arabella sadly
Then she shakes off the sad thoughts and smiles at Monica, lets go and get a plate select a few slices of delight and find somewhere to sit"
Monica nods, although she's not to sure what a few slices of delight is? Hopefully she'll be able to work it out and not have to ask!
Mm what's that under the table at the end?
I hope someone notices soon, or that will be one very sick toddler !
Let's leave them to enjoy the afternoon.
