So I thought I'd take a few snaps of it but....
Come out of there, before you get stuck!
'I tummin! But I not want to. Want to live in here!'
A pair of legs in plum-coloured dungarees? Now where have I seen those before?
A pair of plum coloured dungarees, a plum checked shirt and red hair? Now why does that make me think of Easter eggs? Ooooh, perhaps I need to worry? (for those not in the know as to why I should be worried, see Absolutely Sasha blog for Easter of 2013!)
LUCAS??!! Is that you?
'Yes, I LUCAS!'
What are you doing here? I thought you'd gone to live with...
' I Lucas. I not Connor! I naughty boy, I going to be bad now....I ...sniffle, sniffle.'
Connor takes up a defiant pose and tries to stamp his foot without falling over.
'Auntie Shelly send this clothes for me to wear, so now I Lucas, not good boy Connor now. I...sniffle, sniffle, sob.'
But Connor, lots of the children here wear clothes that their friends have worn before. Auntie Shelly is one of the very best pre-loved clothing providers. She only sends clothes that are in great condition and....
'I try for to be good boy!'
You ARE a good boy, Connor.
'So why I got Lucas clothes? Lucas is naughty boy.'
No he isn't.....well, maybe he is sometimes. But it isn't clothes that make somebody good or naughty, you know. I asked Auntie Shelly to send this set because Lucas looked so handsome in them and you look very like him.
'I good boy?'
'So what for I still got THIS? Only boys and girls who going to be sent away keep this on!'
Well, you wanted to keep it when you first came here. Don't you remember? You were afraid that I'd hurt you if I cut it off. Anyway, when have we EVER sent kids away from Bryn Derw?
But Connor is not convinced and slumps back onto the floor, crying so loudly that Angelina comes to see what is wrong.
'They going to send me away! They make me look like Lucas! Nobody love Connor!' he tells her.
They sit together and Connor explains just why he thinks he isn't wanted at Bryn Derw.
' .......and you playing with the other boys, not me, and Timmy say that this house only for girls and I LIKE IT and I want for to play with it!' he wails.
Well I love you and so does everybody else here. The house is for us ALL to play with if we want to. Now let's ask Mum to take off your bracelet.' suggest Angelina.
'OK, but first though...'
When the bracelet is finally cut off, Connor is all smiles as he sits at the top of the bookcase den.
'What shall we do now?' asks Angelina.
'I going to write to Lucas and say thank you for my lovely warm clothes!'
