Someone had a disappointment :(

Whilst sorting out stuff for this teacher training malarky, I heard some shuffling, drawers being quietly opened and closed, rustling and then a hopeful sigh:
Parsnip had only pinched my floppy sunhat, a spare pair of sunspecs, an old passport (as if that would get him anywhere!) and even helped himself to a bit of foreign 'spending money' :(

Now, I know that Sam takes Fergus on all her travels, but Parsip is about three times his size, so I had to sit down and have a quiet little chat with him. I explained that he had a very important job to do back here, looking after the Playground keys and also keeping an eye open for any mischief.

Once the tears dried up he looked at me and said rather challengingly 'OK Miss, so where's the keys then?'.

Ha, little did he know that I DO have keys for the Playground, given to me by Jules in January 2012 when I took the Playground over.

Talk about sounding like Gollum, last I saw of him he was whispering 'My Precioussssss' over and over again :)
So you've been warned, Parsnip will be on the prowl :) And there's nothing worse than a power crazed bear!

"Au revoir, mes enfants! À bientôt!"

So funny :) I think you can go off safe in the knowledge that the keys are now in good hands. Bon voyage! Have a safe journey and a wonderful time. You'll be missed but don't let that spoil your holiday :)) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Good old Parsnip . . . holding the fort while you're on Teacher Training. He's such a responsible bear, even though he DID try and sneak off!

Au Revoir mon Amigo. (I never was any good at languages!)

Haa Haa Haa! You are so funny! You are getting as silly as me! Tee Hee! I am sure Parsnip will not lead us astray in your absence. Have a great trip!

Annie said...

Brilliant. Parsnip will do a great job I'm sure so you go with peace of mind that the playground will be just fine while you are away....and have a great time too.

Hello Di,

Parsnip is adorable! I can understand his disappointment in not being allowed on the trip.

Have a wonderful time!


Lynn said...

Hello Di, I wondered who Parsnip was. I obviously missed his introduction. Well, 'hello' Parsnip, you are one handsome bear. Watch out for those pesky playground pals - they do tend to be a bit boisterous! Lynn x

lol he's sooooooo adorable Di xx

Kathleen said...

Totally love Parsnip in his holiday gear, how could you resist that, cruel me thinks especially as he looks a lot meaner in his Prison Warder role.
Meant to say no thanks to the prize.

Hah Hah! We have a fearless furry gatekeeper, so I'd better bring a big jar of honey the next time I visit the playground :) So cute :)

Hugs Mrs A.

Aw, poor Parsnip! I got right misty eyed at the thought of him having to say goodbye to his Mommy. But truthfully, little bears rest much better at home than in strange places, left alone in hotel rooms, ignored while Mom is having ?fun?. I'll give 'im a hug if he'll let me, and maybe he won't feel so lonely. Hope you're having a grand time. Hugs.

Aw! How could you have turned down that adorable sight, Di?! Pars looks SO fetching in your hat and specs!! I'm sure I've made his Master of the Keys and Lookout job much easier by being away myself and not stirring up Miss Chief among the playmates!! Bless him!! Hugs, Darnell
