Christmas Eve at The Pads ….. Arrivals ….. An Arbour Tale
Christmas Eve at The Pads
An Arbour Tale
It’s the middle of the night.
The Christmas tree in the front room is adorned.
Teds are at last asleep, and dreaming of the morrow.
All except some astonished , little Grey Teds , who have been watching from their cosy beds with growing excitement.
Outside their Pad important visitors are arriving from The North Pole, and they don’t know about the snowmen on the roof yet.
Theo, Tarbo and Tutu have once again enlisted help from Cart horse, who helps out every year with his beautiful cart, and he is there too, his cart laden with parcels.
Santa’s helpers have decorated the Banqueting Rooms, and Father Christmas himself ,has flown in on the magical, Blue Sleigh, with his right-hand Ted to help and support him with all the parcels and presents.
They work through the night to have everything ready for Christmas Day feasting and fun with their friends at the Pads.
Fishing Elves provide refreshing water from a Magic Fountain
…Up on their roof, snowmen from the frozen lands are settling down in snow which has been magicked there to keep them cool and comfortable.
By daybreak, tired North Pole Teds are catching forty winks before the Pads Community awakens.
All is prepared for Christmas Day at the Pads.
