A strange visitor

It was Friday and Maria kept hopping in and out of the house. She was leaving the oddest collection of stuff around but none of it edible so I wasn’t too interested in perfume and vouchers. Seemingly it was prizes for a raffle -whatever that is.

But one caught our eye.


I stayed out-of-the-way.


Ellie was brave though I don’t think she liked it.


She didn’t give up. Ellie spent a long time trying to persuade the doll to move.  I knew better dinner called for my attention.
