The weather was superb yesterday, oh what a change and an absolute delight to see blue skies. Charity certainly enjoyed lapping up the sunshine and went for an early evening walk in the garden. She was ever so surprised to see what looked like a little boy riding the tortoise in the rose garden.
She went closer as at first she really couldn’t believe her eyes. Yes it was definitely a little boy!
The little boy turns to have a look at who had spoken to him. He was quite unaware that he had been observed and was rather startled to see Charity standing before him.
Shyly the little boy tells Charity his name is Edwin and that he is lost and doesn’t know where he is. The last thing he remembers was being shut up in a glass cabinet amongst other dolls and treasures of all kinds of shapes and sizes.
Charity puts her arm round Edwin. There there now young Edwin, never you mind, come with me, Lets take you in and give you something nice to eat and perhaps see about cleaning you up a little bit and see if you can stay with us.
Edwin hops down from the tortoise and follows Charity inside, wondering what it will be like living here with the happy looking lady with the rosy cheeks and flowers in her hair.
