Hallo Teddy bear lovers around the world!
Last year I went travelling with my parents in Wales. You don’t know where is Wales? It is a little country on the same island as England, and it is very lovely. My Mom Miki de Goodaboom always wanted to go there to paint, and so one day my Dad, the English rocker Kev Moore, took us there.
They say it is so lovely and so green there because it rains all the time. But we took with us our Spanish sun and we had a beautiful weather. We were so happy!
Somewhere, I don’t remember where, we saw a Teddy bear and a mouse. I think they were about to marry, The mouse looked very smart in her red dress and with the flowers in her hand, but the groom was quite naked, apart from a bow around his neck. Perhaps this is how they marry in Wales. It is so different everywhere!
Anyway I asked my Mom to paint them, as they are so cute. She started but then stopped, saying she had more important things to paint. Really , I am asking you:
What is more important than teddy bears???
“Well, Truffy, if it is that important, why don’t you paint them yourself?”
Well, I am very busy too. all the time. And I can’t paint like her… even if she says I am quite talented.
Yesterday, she was a bit doing nothing , so I told her she should finish the bear and the mouse. I never give up, me. I am a bit like her in those things. And she did!
