Occasionally someone unexpected appears in The Piggery. Today was one of those days.
Hello there. Who are ewe?
Wool I never! A curly coated sheep type person has come to stay! She looks all innocent and young. Must be pure new wool.
I bet she can spin a good yarn.
Just call me Fairy-Curly-Locks.
Errr . . . you could say . . . I am feeling a little sheepish.
What’s that? Your favourite food is, is, is GRASS?
What did I say?
Meet my two very special friends, Mr Bee and Mr Ladybug!
You can tell they are special bee-cause they are allowed to sit in my armchairs.
Mr Bee is especially useful, he has a jolly comfy lap to sit on . . . he’s the bee-knees.
And he does particularly good back scritches, useful when there isn’t a handy Daddy around!
ooohhhhh . . . ahhhhh, up a bit, now down a bit! Mmmmm! Lovely! You’re a real honey.
You can all buzz-off now, it’s time for our snackettes.
Salad and pollen, please, waiter!
Thank you, Auntie Dona and all your super-duper family for thinking of ME – I love my Mr Bee very much indeed!
Look! A lovely friend made me a jolly special Fairy type dinner bowl, just for ME!
It’s very nice, although I have to say it is rather lacking in the snacks department. I am only saying, like.
Nom, nom, nom!
That’s much better! C’mon Pixie and bear, you can help me test my new bowl!
Thank you very much, Auntie Annie, I love my new bowl – especially when it is full!
Oh hello! Has my new three piece been delivered?
Good! Oh whooo! It’s lovely and pink, my favourite colour.
Now then you two, I will spell this out for you – it says FAIRY, that means ME!
This means this is the place where I will sit – not YOU, Bear, or YOU, Pixie, if you don’t mind.
Allow me to demonstrate.
Yes, it is very comfy indeed . . . can we get the removal men in to move it into my house?
Psst! Bear, do you think it really does say ‘FAIRY’? It might SAY Fairy when it really means BEAR.
Well, this armchair suits me just fine, Pixie! It may not be quite my size but it will do.
Err, excuse me, Bear, but I see the cushion has been squashed down on MY CHAIR!
You will have to wait until I have finished my snack before I come and sort you out. I may be a few minutes . . . !
Hello there my lovelies.
Mummy says it’s Easter – time for another of my splendiferous set-piece photo portrait type heirloom thingies. As it’s Easter Mummy wants us to be all good and colourful and very well behaved – no problems there then! I’ve recruited a clutch of fluffy chicks to make up the numbers. I can’t help but notice that everything looks all under control though. Is there something missing?
Oh yes of course, my pesky little(!) pigsisters. Here they come. It was never going to be straight forward was it?
‘I say Pixie, I don’t think much to that droopy looking salad’
‘Don’t panic Bear, I’ll check to see if Fairy has hidden some tasty treats behind here.’
‘Egg-celent idea, Pixie.’
‘The weather looks nice for the time of year, Bear – all that sun will get the salad growing nicely – Yum.’
Never mind grazing out the window Pixie, get your bottoms over here pronto for an Easter family portrait.
‘Hummph, call this a snack Bear? I suppose it will have to do.’
‘I’ve nearly finish all of mine Pixie – time to sneak off to pastures new.’
Goodness me – what a kerfuffle. Lucky I had ordered a couple well behaved and very photogenic chicklets, Basil and Dill, to help me look all photogenic and everything.
Happy Easter everyone!
