Thinking about VE Day 75

The Vicarage may have been decked with home-made bunting but Tedi Su and Sandy Lou were sad.  Sad because VE Day 75 was meant to be a big weekend in the Parish.

They had been looking forward to going along to a wedding that was meant to take place at St Bride’s and then spending the rest of the weekend remembering the sacrifices that so many had made.

The little bears thought too about all of the brave key workers still going to work in the midst of the pandemic and felt that perhaps those who gave up so much during the war years would be proud of them.

Exploring the Vicarage under Lock-down

It’s been a strange time for Tedi Su what with all this talk of Lock-down and Rev’d Suz having been unwell.  The peace and quiet of the Vicarage has been replaced with family members having to work from home for a while.

So Tedi Su went to see what Dr Phil was up to, hoping she might be able to help him.  She soon discovered that the only way she could help was by leaving him alone to get on with his work.

Undeterred, the little bear went on to the next home office where she found a makeshift newsroom.  Could she help uncover some big news she wondered?  At least she hadn’t encountered the Vicarage Cat on her travels!

Savouring the last days of the Crib

Following a quiet day yesterday where Rev Suz was busy with all sorts of desk work and sick of hiding from the Vicarage cat, Tedi Su was glad to be out and about again today.  She went back to St Bride’s for the midweek Eucharist and met some lovely new people.  She thoroughly enjoyed taking part as everyone held hands to say the Grace together.

After the service, Tedi Su was mesmerised by the Crib – especially as there are so few days left before it is put away.  What might have gone through this little bear’s head is anyone’s guess but she looked quite thoughtful on leaving the church.  Perhaps she was wondering what it might have been like to have been in the manger alongside baby Jesus.Tedi Su at the crib

Introducing Tedi Su

Today Tedi Su stepped out of the vestry at St Bride’s for the first time to much oohing and aahing.  The parish ted was fascinated by all that took place and was keen to have photos taken with Rev Suz and Anne Prince who knitted the beautiful bear as well as with the Pilgrimage Candle.  She went on to meet the Bettws crowd and particularly enjoyed the coffee and cake after the service; she is also looking forward to the variety of things this week will bring.  The one thing Tedi Su is a little apprehensive about is living with the Vicarage cat!
