The funfair had been wonderful. Meriel had several new ‘teddies’ thanks to the skills of her parents, and had ridden merry-go-rounds, dodgem cars, and the ghost train.
She’d won prizes for catching rubber ducks, and for throwing balls into buckets, and they’d eaten hotdogs, and ice cream. They arrived home tired and happy.
Taddy got everything out of the car, while Daddy ran her bath; it was almost ready when Taddy suddenly shouted.
“What’s wrong?” asked Daddy.
“Nosy got into the candyfloss.”
Sure enough, there was a very sticky-looking Fluff.
“Now Nosy needs a bath too!” Meriel laughed.
