In the Easter Holidays, Ted and Ellie decided to do some doodles in the park with their chalk. I (their good friend Berry) wondered why they wanted to, because usually they didn’t enjoy getting dusty, and Ted wasn’t very keen on drawing. ‘It’s Annual Chalk Day today,’ said Ellie excitedly. ‘Really?’ I asked. I had never, ever heard of it. ‘We made it up,(it makes sense now; if Ellie comes up with an idea, she never lets go) and now we’re going to do loads of drawing and doodling and leave a sign and some chalk and see if other people do some too…’ I must admit I zoned out for a bit. She rambled on about it forever and ever, and she never even paused once to take a breath. So I said: ‘Ellie, can I come with you?’ ‘Of course, Berry! Were you even listening?’ (I wasn’t, but she didn’t know that, she only said it in a silly way to make me feel ridiculous as well as guilty). So later on, we all went to the park, did loads of funny pictures, and watched other people do scribbles and lines all around the playground. And you can still see them today. (Depending when today is, and it’s Homesfield Park by the way).
