Christmas Day at the Pads ….. Recovery …..An Arbour Tale
Christmas Day at the Pads
An Arbour Tale
Christmas morning is quiet at the Pads.
As Cart horse munches hay from his nosebag, North Pole Teds are thinking about Tarbo, who has worked so hard with them, and has now been whisked away with only one, attached leg.
The horror before their eyes, as he lay on the floor, unable to get up and walk, haunts their every second.
Happiness is suspended!
Festive food sits waiting on pretty tables.
More snow magicked in for fun, remains untrodden.
Lights and decorations are un-noticed, as Teds sit about wondering how Tarbo is.
…In Fanny Fairy’s Pad, Tutu and Theo watch as all the Christmas fairies and Angels make their healing magic.
Father Christmas realises that not all the Teds have learnt about Tarbo’s mishap, and the day can yet be saved. He quietly tells them to Believe: ….. all will be well.
…Sure enough, by afternoon the snowy patch is filling up with noisy Teds, and Tarbo is having a snowball fight with Theo, whilst Deshpande [who is a surgeon Ted by trade] and Tutu join in.
….Christmas is hotting up at the Pads; let’s hope that the snow doesn’t melt!
Anne ….. Christmas ….. 2013.
