After the critters' Tardis making adventure last week it was finally time to test it out!
Norris, Willis and Ruby were discussing what their first time-travelling destination would be when they came across Gina and Kevin in the kitchen. Gina explained they were making a super tasty baked ricotta cheesecake. This sounded too good to be true and Willis asked when it would be ready because they could postpone their trip until after cheesecake eating. Kevin said it was quite a process and it wouldn't be ready for another 5 hours! Then Ruby had the brilliant idea of travelling in time 5 hours ahead to when the cake would be ready!
The three of them left Gina and Kevin to finish making the cake. They found an excellent launching spot in the garden and filed into the Tardis.
Norris turned the dial and they all closed their eyes unsure of what to expect.
They felt a small jolt then opened their eyes.
Willis cautiously opened the door and inspected their surroundings. They definitely weren't at the Herbert house, they appeared to be in a jungle! Norris glanced at the dial and realised he'd accidentally set their destination to 5pm 28th July 2013 BC! He informed the others who were shocked, excited and nervous all at the same time. They decided to explore.
The critters hadn't walked far before they stumbled upon a unicorn! In a tepee! The critters just stood there staring not know what to say, so the unicorn spoke first. She introduced herself as Esmeralda and asked where they'd come from as she hadn't seen them round her part of the jungle before. Norris told her all about the Tardis, the Herbert house, the mistake he'd made with the dial and the baked ricotta cheesecake.
Esmeralda was particularly intrigued by the sound of the cheesecake so the critters invited her back for some cake and tea. She excitedly agreed and followed them back to the Tardis.
She said a quick goodbye to her jungle and off they went.
A small jolt and a second later they were back at their launching pad at the Herbert house, exactly on time for the cake to be ready!
Gina and Kevin had set the table and prepared the tea for their return. The critters introduced Esmeralda and told the others about their grand adventure. Everyone thought Esmeralda was pretty great! Gina and Kevin even gave her their secret baked ricotta cheesecake recipe!
