Masked and ready

Tedi Su with mask 1

Following her first Sunday back in Church last week, Tedi Su and her new friend Bridget Bear have decided to better prepare themselves to be out and about during this global pandemic.

It has been a sad time for the Vicarage bears – they’ve missed all the visitors that used to come and spend time with them (and Rev Suz of course).  And whilst they’ve enjoyed the Sunday worship, it’s just not the same as physically being with people.

The little teds know that they are fundamentally people bears.  They’ve been thoroughly miserable not to have seen anyone and haven’t had any adventures at all throughout the Lockdown.  Worst still they’ve had to keep out of the Vicarage Cat’s way!

Tedi Su felt guiltily triumphant on Sunday as she drove off with Rev Suz and the family – particularly when she looked back to see the Vicarage Cat scowling on the drive.  No more miaowing to announce his arrival during the Eucharist!  He’d just have to be content at home and watch the service back later.  After all, it’s not the end of Online Church and perhaps that’s not a bad thing, she reflected.

Meeting Humans

When you consider that back in January February the Teds were meeting new people every day it does seem surreal that come the summer its become such a rare occurrence. But the Teds did get to meet Alex and Kim who had to come personally (albeit socially distanced) to fulfill the requirements so they could have a Common License to enable them to marry in Bridgend in the near future.

All the best Alex and Kim. Make sure you decide before the big day whose job it is to put the bins out – we don’t want any arguments.
