Beschreibung

Bertie Bunny was lying in bed one bright sunny morning with Alfie, his beloved teddy bear tucked securely under his arm. Berties nostrils twitched excitedly as they detected the smell of food, in this case baking coming from the kitchen. Bertie threw poor Alfie aside as he leapt out of bed and pulled on his dressing gown and slippers. Alfie lay in a heap on the floor as Bertie flew down the corridor to the kitchen and towards the smell of baking that was coming from it.

When Bertie reached the kitchen, mum was nearly up to her elbows in flour and was kneading the dough for bread rolls and splits as part of her preparations for this afternoons tea party. She had invited some of her friends over for a girly afternoon of reminiscing about the olden days when they were young. Unfortunately mum had been unable to employ someone to look after Bertie so he would be sitting in on the tea party, a thought that filled mum with absolute dread.

Bertie scampered across the kitchen and clambered up onto an area of the work surface that did not have flour on it. At the corner of his eye Bertie espied three bowls of butter cream. One was ordinary butter cream for the butterfly buns which had just come out of the oven, one had coffee flavouring and one had chocolate butter cream. The last two were for two sponge cakes that were cooling on a couple of racks nearby.

Bertie stretched out his paw and was about to dip it in one of the bowls when he felt a sharp slap on his paw. Mum had seen a beige furry paw coming towards one of her mixing bowls, knowing whose it was she reached out just in time to prevent Bertie from dipping a paw or two into the icing. Bertie squealed as he withdrew his paw and rubbed it. Mum had hurt him and he did not like it. Gently, mum lifted Bertie down from the worktop and urged him to take his bath. After wiping her floury hands, she ran his bath and laid out his clothes in the bedroom. She felt sorry for Alfie who was still lying on the floor where Bertie had left him. She picked his bear up, made his bed and tidied up and then went back to prepare Berties breakfast.

Meanwhile, Bertie was laying in his bath, telling Fred, his duck, about the day that was to come and how he was looking forward to eating the tea that mum was in the midst of preparing.

Mum was still baking when Bertie having had his bath, came out for his breakfast. Mum had made the bread rolls and splits and was now preparing sausage rolls and vol au vents. Berties mouth watered and when he had eaten his boiled egg and soldiers, Bertie begged to be allowed to help with the tea party. Gently, mum advised that it might be better if Bertie went outside to play, but warned him not to get dirty. Bertie played with his football and dreamed that he was scoring in the World Cup Finals. As he played, he gave a running commentary to anyone who was listening, unfortunately there was no-one there but Bertie did not care, he was having such a good time.

In the midst of his numerous celebrations after scoring a classic goal, Bertie heard his mother calling him. Obediently Bertie trotted inside. Mum had iced the cakes and sponges which left the mixing bowls with the leftover butter creams. Now licking out bowls was right up his street. Bertie virtually climbed inside the bowls to ensure that every last scrape was out of them. When he had finished, he was covered in butter cream of all flavours from the tips of his ears to the ends of his feet. Bertie was filthy.

Mum was far from happy as she stripped Bertie of his clothing and placed him in his second bath of the morning. His shorts and tee shirt were placed straight in the wash and a fresh towel was laid out for him to dry himself. Mum searched out another set of shorts and a tee shirt whilst Bertie smiled as he lay once again in the bath with Fred.

Meanwhile mum had finished all the baking and had placed the food under cloths ready to bring down to the lounge l

1.   Bertie and the Tea Party

Bertie Bunny was lying in bed one bright sunny morning with Alfie, his beloved teddy bear tucked securely under his arm. Bertie’s nostrils twitched excitedly as they detected the smell of food, in this case baking coming from the kitchen. Bertie threw poor Alfie aside as he leapt out of bed and pulled on his dressing gown and slippers. Alfie lay in a heap on the floor as Bertie flew down the corridor to the kitchen and towards the smell of baking that was coming from it.

When Bertie reached the kitchen, mum was nearly up to her elbows in flour and was kneading the dough for bread rolls and splits as part of her preparations for this afternoon’s tea party. She had invited some of her friends over for a girly afternoon of reminiscing about the olden days when they were young. Unfortunately mum had been unable to employ someone to look after Bertie so he would be sitting in on the tea party, a thought that filled mum with absolute dread.

Mum was far from happy as she stripped Bertie of his clothing and placed him in his second bath of the morning. His shorts and tee shirt were placed straight in the wash and a fresh towel was laid out for him to dry himself. Mum searched out another set of shorts and a tee shirt whilst Bertie smiled as he lay once again in the bath with Fred.

Meanwhile mum had finished all the baking and had placed the food under cloths ready to bring down to the lounge later. She rearranged the seating in the lounge and had taken out the best china, cutlery and serviettes for the tea party. Mum smiled as she finally placed freshly cut roses in a vase and plumped up the cushions one last time.

When Bertie had finally emerged from his bath-tub it was noon and his lunchtime. Mum sent Bertie down to the fish and chip shop to pick up food for both of them. Bertie liked going down the chip shop because they knew him down there and sometimes the owner gave Bertie a free cone of chips to eat whilst he waited for the rest of his order. Mum wrote out an order and Bertie handed this over the counter when he entered the shop. Surprisingly there was no-one else there and Bertie sat on the window-seat and read the newspaper that was placed there for customers. Jon, the owner placed Bertie’s order in a bag and Bertie paid the money that mum had given him. Bertie skipped all the way home as he did not want his food to get cold. Mum shared out the chicken and chips, with which Bertie had ordered curry sauce and garlic mayonnaise, his favourite.

Mum just had time to change and ensure that Bertie looked his best before the first of her guests arrived. None of them had met Bertie, but this did not worry Bertie. He beamed his lovely smile and greeted each guest as if he had known them all his life.

At last all the guests had arrived and Bertie was sitting on mum’s knee eying one or two of them suspiciously. The conversation soon turned to people and places that Bertie knew nothing about. Once or twice he stifled a yawn behind his elegant furry paw. Bertie was however enthralled by a guest who was wearing a straw hat with big red cherries on it. He sat and stared at that hat. He could not decide whether the cherries were real or not. He would have to investigate this in due course.

Four o’clock came, tea-time. Mum placed Bertie on his chair while she fussed around in the kitchen to prepare tea and coffee for her guests. With mum out of the room, Bertie jumped down from his chair and scampered towards the lady with the cherries on her hat. This lady, Ruth was terrified of all furry four-legged creatures, particularly those that suddenly jumped up onto her and started investigating her hat. She stiffened up and did not dare to breathe as Bertie pawed each cherry in his investigation of the hat. It did not take long for Bertie to decide that none of the cherries were real and therefore not edible. Angya muttered Bertie under his breath as he jumped down and resumed his seat awaiting the arrival of the afternoon tea. Slowly Ruth relaxed as Bertie started conversations with the ladies around him.

When mum had brought down the food and the tea, it was time to tuck in, the best part of the party for Bertie. Mum had warned him on many occasions that polite bunnies served themselves last. Bertie chose to ignore this completely. Bertie was first in the queue for the food and had helped himself to a sandwich and a sausage roll before mum could give him one of her ‘how dare you?’ looks. Bertie had learned, however, that it was rude to pile up his plate so he took two or three things at a time and went back to his seat which was now the footstool. However Bertie kept his eye on the sausage rolls, the vol au vents and the sandwiches that had cheese and tomato fillings as these were his favourites. He also eyed up the sponges and the butterfly buns which he was also very partial to. It would be true to say that he liked all the food that mum had prepared.

Finally the guests said their adieus and took their leave. Apart from one solitary sandwich with salmon and cucumber and a slice of coffee and walnut sponge, there was not a morsel left of the baking that mum had taken most of
