Mandalay Ted goes on holiday

For years, Mandalay Ted has sat quietly in his lifebelt in the front bedroom, waiting for children to return year after year, but suddenly, this year in, in April, he has disappeared for an unplanned holiday to York, where he will be spending a couple of weeks.
Luckily, his cousin, Temporary Ted from Birmingham was planning a holiday himself, and has come to Mandalay in sunny Southwold for a few weeks to deputise for him.

Temp Ted Easter 14

Fancying himself as a bit of a pirate, but not able to afford a parrot, he has arrived with Easter Chick on his shoulder for company.
Maybe next time we see him, he’ll be sporting an eye-patch…..
