From the Dragons’ Den
George, Uncle Sam and Idris writing:
Such an anti-climax. We three had grown very excited as we thought that things were getting back to normal. We knew that people have been coming along on the day known as Sunday and we really thought that we might be taken for our wash and brush-up, ready to greet our Little Dragon friends again.
What a disappointment! We have heard the words – ‘another lockdown’ – and we know enough to realise that we will be staying in our basket for a bit – or maybe a lot – longer than we thought.
Never mind! Just one of those things! We are feeling happy though, as we have heard something special. This special thing is that, after a long, long time, someone known as a Rector is coming before too long. Everyone has worked really hard to keep things going, even though they have for the most part ignored us in our basket, in our cupboard. They have worked really hard to keep everyone’s spirits cheerful, and to keep the things called Services going. Soon, we have heard, the new Rector will be joining us and we three are really looking forward to meeting him.
What with the new arrival and the hoped-for end to this lockdown thing, perhaps we will receive our wash and brush-up soon and be back in action. (Hope it isn’t too cold when we are hung out on the washing line to dry off.
In the meantime, we know that the time of Christmas is coming soon. We won’t be able to have our Little Dragon party this year and the funny man in the big red coat won’t be calling in. However, we do know that it won’t be too long after that when the excitement of the new Rector will be upon us. We really look forward to it.
So, to all of you, we send the Season’s Greetings. (Oh, how we will miss all those lovely trees this year!) Hope we are out and about before too long.
Val sends every good wish.
Best wishes from we three:-
