Forget Fred and Ginger- meet Fred THE Ginger(bread man)


Just before easter a parcel arrived on my doorstep...


In amongst the pigeon stuffing and chocolate from the parents was this little chap...





I entered Diane's blog's birthday giveaway and although I didn't win I mentioned how much I loved gingerbread men and she very kindly sent me my very own felted ginger friend! (for future reference Diane- I also like Citroen C3s and cheques for £1,000,000)

Fred as he is now known soon settled in and made himself a feathered friend...




They sat and admired the spring flowers together...





...and, after assuring me that they were both experts in woolly chicken anatomy, helped to put together a new hen...





In fact pigeon and gingerbread man were getting along fantastically until this happened...


...










...








Luckily Fred is a very forgiving gingerbread man and after a quick trip to gingerbread A&E I popped a Fred and Mr.Pigeon-sized pizza into the oven to avoid further temptation...








Thanks so much, Diane! I love my gingerbread man :)

Ha ha, a brilliant story, Charlie, and I particularly like your disclaimer at the end. And the dejected look of Mr P. And the mini pizza .... and - well, just all of it really!
