Nanna Makes the World Go Round
Nanna is staying for a few days, and being the keep you warm rather than feed you up kind of Nanna, she came complete with her own sewing machine, and has proceeded to create the bambino's winter wardrobe (just the basics apparantly). The spotty number is what is likely to be the first of many dressing gowns (if Dora's childhood is anything to go by that is. Nanna was just plain Mum back then, and loved nothing more than to whip up forest green floral quilted fabric into floor length gowns, always with a hood.) The red cords are just 1 of 4 pairs - Dora's obsessive compulsive gene was definitely inherited from her Mother. So, as a very special treat, Dora and the bambino took Nanna to feed the ducks. Dick was doing boys jobs in the garden.
