The Famous Four go on a Little Adventure

Off they went in the little sleepy-van.
Off up the hill and down the other side.
Off up the lanes 'til they got to ... a quiet place,
Where they snuggled up together in the little sleepy-van and went to sleep.

In the morning, they woke ... and stretched ... and made some tea and toast,
Which was nice.
Then, they put on warm clothes and went for a wet and windy walk.
It was fun.






When they got back to the sleepy-van they were tired and wet and hungry,
So they had tea and cakes,
Which was nice.
Then, off they went again in the little sleepy-van.
They went up the hill and down the other side.
They went down the lanes 'til they got to ... a quiet place.

They found a friend, in a little pointy house.


He seemed nice, so they invited him for tea and cakes in the sleepy-van.
He brought another friend.
They were worried there might not be enough tea and cakes,
But there was,
Which was nice.

After tea the two friends went back to the pointy house,
Leaving the Famous Four to snuggle up together in the little sleepy-van and go to sleep.
It was very cosy.

In the morning, they woke ... and stretched ... and made some tea and toast.
Then they all put on warm clothes and went for a walk.
This time, it wasn't wet.
This time it wasn't windy.
It was really, quite nice.



They found some brackety, fungusy things, growing on trees.
They looked very interesting.




It was a lovely walk.





When they got back to the sleepy-van, the friends went for a snooze in their pointy house,
While the Famous Four ate tea and cakes ... quietly ... secretly.

But they saved some for their friends, who came and shared later.
They laughed ... and barked ... and told funny stories.
Then, as it got dark, the friends went back to the pointy house,
And the Famous Four snuggled up together in the little sleepy-van, and went to sleep ... again.

In the morning, they woke ... and stretched ... and made tea and toast.
Then they put on their warm clothes, and went for a walk ... again.



  





   

They ran and skipped and talked and laughed.
This time, it was a little bit warmer,
So, along the way, they had a picnic,
Which was nice.





Then they set off back to the sleepy-van ... and the pointy house.







And, of course, it was time for tea and cakes.
They'd had such fun.

But soon it was time to wave goodbye to their friends in the pointy house,
And set off, up the hill, and down the other side,
And along the lanes,
All the way back to their house in the valley.

When they got there, they were so tired,
They snuggled up together in bed and went to sleep,
Dreaming of their next adventure.


And our sincere condolences to all those who were affected by the events in Paris, while we were just having fun. Rest in peace and God bless.

    1. Thank you Dawn and you may as, I suspect, will many others. Troubled times ... into which I tried to inject a little lightheartedness.
