Bob the Builder's Wellies
Today we have been laying concrete. Concrete is a bit like mud but dearer. This means that the men have to go for a paddle. Here is Bob the Builder. Silly Bob forgot to bring his wellies. Actually Bob hasn't got any wellies because he spends all his money down the pub. Bob is a clever builder. He put his feet in plastic bags and sealed them up with tape. Inventive Bob.
Here are Bob's welly substitutes. Stylish Bob.
Very soon, Tumbler the concrete truck came. "I'm a rumblin' and a tumblin' and rollin' and a tumblin' " said Tumbler. Bob got to work. See Bob in the middle smoothing the concrete. What's that oozing between my toes, thought Bob. Oh no, it was concrete!
By the time the job was finished Bob was thoroughly pissed off with life in general and his new wellies in particular. Bob's mummy will be very cross with him when he gets home tonight. Bob has decided to get himself some proper wellies very soon. Sensible Bob. Can we fix it? Yes we can!
