I'm confused. Have you seen my first film yet? If not, have a look here (HB's Day Out ) Then you might understand what a Monday means to me and why I'm confused.
They're still here today. Usually on a Monday, there are all the nasty alarms going off far too early for a bear and up they get, rustle and knock about and then in a flurry, leave the house for the day. Then my week can begin. This is when my world starts. Please don't underestimate the life of a bear. I'm a busy bee - well, no I'm not a bee, I'm a bear, but you know what I mean!
I have paperwork to catch up on - the monthly fish and chip shop bill is just one of the tasks which takes me a while - the Raggle Taggles (I'll introduce you them next time) have a large and confusing order which takes a while to sort out! Then I catch up on the papers, market news and usually have a meeting or two in my diary. After that, as is usual a bear needs a beauty nap, followed by a picnic in the park, home to tidy up before they're home again.
Of course that is an important part of the day, no, let me change that. It is a statutory requirement for all bears. It has to be exactly as they left it. Exactly. You may think that there wouldn't be much to do. Let me back-track a bit. I don't live here alone. There are also the Raggle Taggles. They also start their world on a Monday. They aren't always tidy. So when I get back from my business meetings, it is all hands on decks to rectify their over-exuberance during the day! Of course now and again, something gets left - a stray cushion on the floor, a few crumbs on the work surface and maybe a book left out. Usually those little misdemeanours aren't noticed and we get away with it, sometimes a puzzled look, but they just carry out - usually jokingly blaming us! But the one we can't get away with, the offence that no one speaks of - is not making it back to one's place in time. Being caught out, mid run back to our places. It has happened. I won't pretend that it hasn't. We don't like to talk about it and generally it's over-looked.
So next time you get home from work...just have a closer look. And if you do notice anything - please please please, keep it to yourself!
