The Postcard Challenge 2012 and free class.

There was once a little girl called


Now she was known to be a bit potty. 
Lottie lived in a shed and kept her Ted just sitting on the bed. He got really fed up with her for leaving him on that boring old bed.

.


So enough was enough,
living like that is far too tough.
Ted wanted to live his life a little more unruly and thought he would find someone who would love him truly.
He decided to do a runner in the hope he would find that stunner.

Ooops that was a little fib about the running, the truth of the matter was

Ted had stolen Lottie's little Ford Ka and had driven off to Austria. 
and you know the peculiar thing, Lottie had not even noticed the absence 
of either Ted or little Ford KA


 
 Until something dropped on her foot from the overfilled mailbox
Lottie needed Ted Vitalis to sort her out.
  She looked at the mini postcard and then it finally dawned on her
both Ford KA and Ted had gone off to Austria.

Would you like to find out what happens next
all will be revealed next friday.

That Ted sure sounds like an independent sort of fellow. I bet he is going to have an amazing time. I wonder where Lottie is going...
