The voice has been sat at the typewriter again this week, doing that thing she calls editing. It’s very boring. I keep having to wriggle so that she gets up and does something different. She says I’m a very impatient little bean and that once I’m in the new space she hopes I’m not going to be wriggling all the time.
She started to put some things in a bag for us for when it’s time for me to be in the new space. I’m not sure what they are. Some of them are strange things, some of them are clothes and some of them are chocolate. I’m looking forward to the chocolate!
She’s been decorating again. She says now there’s some monkeys on my wall. Monkeys are animals that live in a jungle. A jungle is full of animals and I’m going to learn all about them once I’m in the new space. She wants to do something called ‘upcycle’ the place where my new clothes are kept. It’s called a cupboard. She tells me strange lands can be found at the back of cupboards. Lands are other spaces. It’s going to be hard keeping up with all these spaces.
We collected some damsons last week and the voice is making them into wine. She says wine isn’t for little beans but that big beans sometimes need it, especially if there’s a very wriggly little bean around. She’s going to make me some yummy soup instead.
I hope you’re finding time to save your tea leaves and your vegetable peelings for the garden and the compost heap. The voice is still trying to cut down on food waste for my Green Bean Challenge and she’s got some more ideas for you later this week.
