  As day lightens, the North pole visitors, after working very hard, have a refuelling breakfast.

   Preparing to re-acquaint themselves with their friends at the Pads they  suddenly notice that Tarbo has fallen off his chair!

  Tutu and Theo tenderly tuck up Tarbo in one of Great Granny Florrie’s soft, knitted blankets, and lift him on to the Magic carpet which has immediately  rushed to the scene with pilot Percy  aboard.

   Unhappy faces dwindle into the distance as Tarbo looks down and tells them not to worry, as he will be back soon.

 

 

 

Anne ….. Christmas Morning 2013.
