Yesterday was Mother’s day and though her two kids did an amazing job, cooking dinner and surprising her with some spectacular bird earrings. I know Maria still missed her own mum… so….
We decided to cheer her up by beginning our expedition plans to find that Ogre.
I’ve been watching Dora, and learnt a lot,
Looking for Dora the Explorer.
So I now know preparation is the key for finding a species, in this case an Ogre. We started by gathering together the following items:
2. Fairy Cakes
3. In case of emergency phone
6. First aid kit and book.
7. A silver star
8. – We are still waiting on this one, it is a map of the wood where he lives …until then we will practice our drills…
Ellie: Hang on a moment, Bob. Why have we got a star?
Bob: all travellers know that if you are lost you can find your way by looking at stars, so we are bringing our own, just in case
Ellie: And a ball on a stick?
Bob: Its the old donkey thing, you know donkey being led by a carrot on a stick,
Ellie: No I don’t understand.
Bob: You are a collie/husky, you like balls, see I’ll show you..
Ellie: Nope sorry I don’t get it..
Bob: Don’t worry you’ll get the hang of it. We just have to pick the correct mode of transport to be pulled.
Ellie: now that looks plain stupid.
Bob: which one?
Ellie: Hmm.. I don’t think you’ll get any donkey to pull any of those.
But I wouldn’t mind a drive in a Ferrari.
