# Life is for the living down at Apple Tree House. #

0:00:390:00:42

-Mum?

-Yes.

-I love toast.

-Good.

0:00:460:00:48

And I love Sunday mornings too.

0:00:480:00:50

Well, today will be extra special for you.

0:00:500:00:53

-Why?

-I've arranged for you to spend the day playing with Mali.

0:00:530:00:58

Yes!

0:00:580:00:59

And that means your dad can get on with his chores.

0:01:000:01:04

LAUGHTER

0:01:050:01:06

I'll get to my chores and I'll fix that broken light.

0:01:060:01:12

I've just got a few jobs to do around the estate first.

0:01:120:01:15

OK, just make sure it doesn't turn out like last time.

0:01:150:01:20

Don't worry, Patience, I'll be back before you know it.

0:01:200:01:24

Come on, eat up and we'll go and find out what Mali is up to.

0:01:270:01:32

0:01:320:01:34

How are we doing, Mali?

0:01:380:01:40

-Nearly done?

-Not quite.

0:01:400:01:42

DOOR BELL RINGS

0:01:420:01:43

-Hey, Mali.

-Uh-uh!

0:01:430:01:46

-You continue your drawing.

-Mali!

-I'll get it.

0:01:460:01:48

Mali, I'm here.

0:01:480:01:52

-Oh, Sam.

-Hi.

0:01:520:01:53

-Come in.

-Hey, Mali, are you ready for...

0:01:550:01:58

-What are you doing?

-I'm drawing a picture.

0:01:580:02:02

It doesn't look like you're drawing.

0:02:020:02:04

It's for school. He says he's been working on it all week

0:02:040:02:07

but still the page is blank.

0:02:070:02:09

I can't think of any ideas.

0:02:110:02:13

He was supposed to have finished it by now so he could help me

0:02:130:02:17

with my Sunday chores.

0:02:170:02:18

Your teapot chores?

0:02:180:02:20

My teapot what?

0:02:200:02:22

Teapot chores.

0:02:220:02:23

Teapot chores?

0:02:260:02:28

TEAPOT HUMS

0:02:290:02:32

I don't have a teapot that can do chores.

0:02:370:02:39

What are teapot chores?

0:02:390:02:41

Haven't I ever told you about the day of the broken teapot?

0:02:420:02:46

No, tell me.

0:02:470:02:49

Well, it was a dark and rainy afternoon.

0:02:490:02:52

How dark?

0:02:570:02:59

Really dark and there was thunder.

0:02:590:03:01

I remember because I could barely see out of the window.

0:03:030:03:07

After the storm, Dad was busy searching for his keys

0:03:090:03:13

which I think he really enjoys, because he's always dances and hums

0:03:130:03:17

when he's looking for them.

0:03:170:03:19

He looked under cushions, on top of the telly.

0:03:190:03:23

He looked everywhere.

0:03:240:03:26

All around the flat.

0:03:270:03:29

Even in one of Mum's flowerpots.

0:03:310:03:33

But still he couldn't find his keys.

0:03:350:03:38

Sam, have you seen my keys?

0:03:400:03:43

When I've lost something, you always say I should try and

0:03:430:03:46

-remember where I last had it.

-Ah!

0:03:460:03:49

RATTLING SOUND

0:03:520:03:55

Magic.

0:03:550:03:57

-Where are you going?

-I've got so much to do today.

0:03:580:04:02

But what about your chores?

0:04:020:04:04

You said that you were going to fix the shelf.

0:04:040:04:07

Mum had been asking Dad for ages to fix the shelf, but he had loads

0:04:070:04:11

to do around Apple Tree House.

0:04:110:04:13

Bye.

0:04:160:04:17

The storm had caused so much mayhem

0:04:180:04:21

and Dad had to get to work on some repairs.

0:04:210:04:24

And first up was a broken window.

0:04:270:04:29

Oh, thanks for coming so quickly, Kobi.

0:04:290:04:32

Everything got soaked.

0:04:320:04:33

No problem. Now that's good thinking, Katie.

0:04:330:04:37

Putting that tape on that makes this window much less dangerous.

0:04:370:04:40

Oh, good.

0:04:400:04:42

Oh, look, we're going to have to sweep all this up.

0:04:420:04:46

As Kobi likes to say, "When glass shatters, safety matters."

0:04:460:04:50

# Oh, we haven't got much time to get our work done

0:04:530:04:58

# Let's work, let's work

0:04:580:05:01

# So let's not hang around

0:05:010:05:04

# Let's make it done

0:05:040:05:07

# Let's work, let's work... #

0:05:070:05:10

There we are.

0:05:100:05:11

That should do it till we get a new pane of glass fitted.

0:05:110:05:14

Brilliant, thanks Kobi.

0:05:140:05:16

-Why don't you come in for a cup of tea?

-Oh.

0:05:160:05:19

Is this where the teapot comes in?

0:05:190:05:22

Not yet. Besides, Dad didn't have time for tea.

0:05:240:05:28

He had to tend to a stuffed-up gutter.

0:05:280:05:30

You really shouldn't be up so high, Kobi.

0:05:330:05:35

Alf, if there's one thing Kobi knows,

0:05:350:05:38

this height is just right for some super-clean gutter delight.

0:05:380:05:43

-I brought you a nice cup of tea.

-Oh, that looks wonderful.

0:05:440:05:48

Perhaps some other time.

0:05:560:05:58

I think I'd better get on with the rest of my jobs,

0:05:580:06:02

but thank you anyway.

0:06:020:06:03

# Oh, we haven't got much time to get our work done

0:06:070:06:11

# Let's work, let's work

0:06:210:06:23

# Take it slow, though cos you should know

0:06:230:06:27

# That if a job's worth doing it's worth doing right

0:06:270:06:31

# Hammer time and screw and fix

0:06:310:06:34

# Place to go, pick up that ladder

0:06:340:06:36

# Put up shelves, lay down some bricks

0:06:360:06:39

# Let's do the work and make things better

# Work, work, work, work, work

0:06:420:06:45

0:06:470:06:49

-There you are.

-Hello, sweetie.

0:06:500:06:53

Dad, Flo says the boiler in her cafe is heaving.

0:06:530:06:56

Can you go take a look?

0:06:560:06:58

Sure. I'll pop over in a jiffy.

0:06:580:07:01

Oh! Thank you.

0:07:010:07:02

Tea, just what I've been waiting for.

0:07:050:07:08

# Work, work, work, work, work

0:07:080:07:13

-# Let's work, let's work.

-#

0:07:130:07:15

But what about this teapot and Kobi's chores?

0:07:230:07:26

Yes, and how did the boiler heave?

0:07:260:07:28

The boiler wasn't out of breath, Mali.

0:07:330:07:35

It was just making funny noises.

0:07:350:07:37

Oh.

0:07:370:07:38

How is it looking?

0:07:430:07:44

All fixed. Pilot light must have gone out.

0:07:460:07:48

Anyway, all sorted now.

0:07:480:07:51

Oh, that's amazing, Kobi.

0:07:510:07:53

I'll get you a cup of tea to celebrate.

0:07:530:07:55

Actually, that would be wonderful.

0:07:550:07:58

Hi, Flo. There you are.

0:07:580:07:59

I've been looking everywhere for you.

0:07:590:08:02

You promised you'd fix the shelf today.

0:08:020:08:04

-I don't think it'll last much longer.

-I'll come and fix it now.

0:08:040:08:10

I'll have to pass on that, Flo, thanks.

0:08:100:08:12

I'll get my tool box.

0:08:120:08:14

Now, this is where the teapot comes in.

0:08:170:08:20

Mum has a giant teapot collection.

0:08:210:08:23

But how did your mum fit giant teapots into your flat?

0:08:280:08:31

I didn't mean giant in size, I meant she has loads of teapots.

0:08:330:08:39

They're her prized possessions and that shelf is where she likes

0:08:410:08:45

to display them.

0:08:450:08:46

Did your dad fix the shelf?

0:08:490:08:51

Oh, yes...

0:08:510:08:53

..but it didn't quite go to plan.

0:08:540:08:58

MUSIC PLAYS

0:08:580:09:01

Here's that tea you were after.

0:09:230:09:26

LOUD CRASH

0:09:260:09:29

And Dad admitted that he rushed the job

0:09:340:09:37

and should have done it weeks before.

0:09:370:09:39

You see? Procrastination.

0:09:390:09:41

Putting things off until the last minute, like your drawing.

0:09:410:09:45

And ever since that day, whenever Dad had some chores,

0:09:450:09:49

he would call it his teapot chores

0:09:490:09:51

so that it will remind him to do it in good time and with care.

0:09:510:09:55

I still don't have any ideas.

0:09:550:09:57

Don't worry, I can help.

0:09:570:09:59

My dad always says that many minds make for good times.

0:09:590:10:04

Maybe you can take a break from staring at that blank page

0:10:040:10:08

and we can start doing some chores.

0:10:080:10:10

-Go quicker.

-OK.

0:11:340:11:36

Thanks for all your help, Sam.

0:11:360:11:38

And for teaching us about teapot chores.

0:11:380:11:41

-You're welcome.

-Hey, I have an idea.

0:11:410:11:44

Why don't you come over and see my mum's teapot collection?

0:11:440:11:48

Brilliant.

0:11:480:11:49

Right, Patience. Got my tools.

0:11:560:11:59

Let's turn off the power and mend this light.

0:12:000:12:04

I was in such a hurry, I almost forgot.

0:12:120:12:15

Mum, guess who's come over for tea.

0:12:180:12:21

Hello.

0:12:210:12:23

I can only make tea for those who have done their chores.

0:12:230:12:27

-We've done it all.

-Yes, Sam was a big help.

0:12:270:12:30

Yes, and me too.

0:12:300:12:32

-Brilliant. Let's get the kettle on, then.

-Yes.

0:12:320:12:35

At last. A cup of tea, eh?

0:12:420:12:45

I've been waiting for one of these all day.

0:12:450:12:47

-Well, you've had things to do.

-Well done, Dad.

Your mum has some amazing teapots.

She sure does and I was a bit nervous sitting under that shelf.

0:13:050:13:10

You did a great job on your drawing.

0:13:130:13:16

I couldn't have done it without you or Kobi's teapot chores.

0:13:160:13:20

What other chores are there?

0:13:200:13:22

Let's see. Butter knife chores, dustbin chores.

Mali is struggling to think of a picture for school, but Sam regales him with a story about 'teapot chores'. A cautionary tale about how putting things off until the last minute can often mean creating more work for yourself.
