TEDDY BEARS PICNIC
TEDDY BEARS HOSPITAL
It was school holidays and Granny was going to be a doctor or nurse at the Teddy bears picnic, held at
We pulled up with the car packed with bandages, band aids, thermometers cotton buds,
needle and thread. stethoscope, and every thing to fix bears.
I know Granny does a good job, but she really needed me to hold things for her, and to talk to the bears that needed to be fixed, so they were not scared.
It was a huge, lovely old house. I would have loved to play hide and seek in it.
They had great big steps that led up to the main door. This big house made me look quite little. and as you know, I'm not a little bear. I'm BIG.
It was a very rainy day, and we were all going to have a picnic on the big lawns.
The rain did not stop all day, so I was pleased when they said we could have our picnic in the drawing room. (What bear wants to get their fur wet.) Play games in the ballroom and go to the hospital in the dinning room.
Granny said she needed to see if the stethoscope was working so she checked me out first. There were 4 of her friends helping at the hospital as well. The lady on the left was a friend that helped organise the day.
She looked very pretty in her long dress.
OK does this look scary. Things to look down your throat with.( I always gag. ) Thing to hit your knees and arms with to see how high you can kick.Cotton buds to clean your ears with.Medicine glass. OH how I DO NOT like medicine. Tape, bandages that you can't see. Slings that you can't see. Stingose just in-case bears go tooooo close the the hive when they were collecting honey.Needles and threads; but most of all, the most needed thing. Honey to give the bears, because they were so good.
The children were given a check up list to say there bears were healthy, and a prescription pad that said the needed snacks 3 times a day. Hugs often. Bed snuggles at night.
There was a wonderful face painter.
This is a picture of the children having a picnic in the drawing room.
I needed to wander around and have a look at this place. Wow ! How good would this be to play cubbies in.
Granny loved the garden so much, she took me back the next day when it wasn't raining to take some photos.
Just look how long this rose arbour is. Can you spot the handsome one in the middle?
OK, Granny, don't get your knickers in a knot. I won't fall in the fish pond.
I am quite disappointed, I wanted to stand on the top of the huge urn. Granny said NO way you might fall in, and she says she couldn't get me out. So I had to sit at the bottom and wavy.
Arr forget-me-nots. I know you will never forget me.
We had a lovely day, sewing on tails of dinosaurs, ears of dogs and bears, torn necks, more stuffing needed.
Bruising on the head, holes in there backs, hip replacements, you name it Granny was busy.
The children were happy, although that was because I made them laugh.
I expect it could have been because their bears were mended and they had a lovely picnic.
Honey on toast for both Granny and me for tea. She was too tired to cook.
See you all next week.
