” Polly, if it’s not too much trouble, can you please put the kettle on, we are expecting the queen for high tea this afternoon”.
“I would be delighted to, my dear Sukie, it’s not every day the queen visits, and we must do our best to make her comfortable”.
The boys were not very happy with this turn of events as they were expecting the girls to be captured by pirates and made to walk the plank.
” We are not going to take part in your boring tea party” the boys cried in unison ” we are off to explore and have some exciting adventures”.
” Sukie, can you please take the kettle off, it seems the queen will not be visiting after all”.
“I would be delighted to, Polly, now that the boys have gone away, we can play our game of badminton, which is preferable to walking the plank, wouldn’t you say”.
