Scary Fairy and the Ghostly Goings On!

Hello loyal friends and dedicated Fairy followers. As if life isn’t scary enough for a sensitive little piggy such as me, my mousey family mentioned that something called Halloween was happening and Halloween meant everything would be ghostly and witchy and scary and pumpkiny and . . . actually, I am not sure where pumpkins come into it. They are not at all scary – in fact they are rather tasty. Perhaps people should get their facts straight before concocting such nonsense. In actual fact I’ll be having extra scoop of that little munchkin-pumpkin later for after afters. Anyway, to get back to the subject in paw – Halloween sounds just the ticket – let the spookiness commence!

So, Monty, is that Minty hiding under that spooky sheet then? Huh, not exactly scary is she? I am not even scarred a tiny bit. Errr, it is Minty, isn’t it??!

Halloween Fairy (25)

But hold your pumpkins . . . what’s that Halloween type Witchy contraption lurking over there?

Halloween Fairy (29)

Looks tailor-made for a tiny, petite elegantly furry Fairy-sized piggy. No good for big bottomed Mariella or furry-bloomers Marigold either. Move over a bit Monty and mind you don’t go poking your pointy nose where it isn’t required.

Halloween Fairy (31)

I am sure this comfy snuggle hut Witchy hat must be just for little ol’ me. I expect it has my name on it somewhere.

You could be forgiven for being lulled into a false sense of security inside here. Talking of which, I think I have visitors – Eeeek! Look! Scary ghosties! MUMMMMMMMMY!!!!!!

Halloween Fairy (1)

Eeeeek, Eeeeeeeek and Eeeeeeeeeeeeek again – those spooky ghosties have ghastly mouse type ghoulish feet poking out everywhere!!!!!

Just a spooky minute – they all have suspiciously familiar mousey type tootsies. What on carpet is going on?

Halloween Fairy (6)

Oh I see – on Halloween you dress-up as exceptionally unconvincing ghosties and people give you treaty type nibbles?! LOTS of treaty types of nibbles – to go away??!!! Wow – I could get used to these singularly secular celebrations.

Well, if you mousies are all going to dress up and try to be really scary, I may as well join you and take charge – although I don’t really see WHY I need a ghosty sheet, I am already very ghostly with my own beautifully white fur coat – whhhhhooooooooooooooo!

Pick yourself up, Mabel dear. Oh! You fainted with fright! Well get UP, this isn’t the time for lolling around. There are serious treat collecting type activities to undertake.

Halloween Fairy (16)

Right all you talented ghostly mousie apprentices – grab your ghostly costumes. I want a good clean scarefest with lots of wooooo’s and waaaaaaaaaaaaah’s and those sorts of things. Let’s scare everyone silly and make sure they give me, ooops, us double helpings of treats!

Halloween Fairy (43)

Very convincing . . . love the disembodied ear motifs! Good work.

Halloween Fairy (39)

I just need a few moments to get into character. What do you mean, “Fairy would make a good Goblin”? I heard that Monty?

Halloween Fairy (33)

We are PRETEND ghosts, aren’t we? Just double checking. I knew that.

Right – lets get treat collecting – errr I mean scaring!

Halloween Fairy (51)

Whoooooo . . . . and whoooooooooooooooooo some more . . . .

Halloween Fairy (37)

MUM . . . . DAAAD! ANYONE! Even Marigold and Mariella . . . . HEEEEELP!

There are genuine, real ghosts everywhere. Get lots of those tasty treats that I like a lot, to make them go away!

Whoooooooooooo . . .  quick – hurry up with those treats. Lettuce and things, especially things. They should help reduce the scarinessability. Don’t be frightened, now, bring ‘em on and be extra quick about it, please.

Halloween Fairy (48)

I bet you were all really frightened! Don’t worry – I was only pretending to be scary. I am still the ever popular furry bundle of cuteness you all know and love. But if I didn’t get my treats I was fully prepared to UNLEASH HELL – or even my TEETH.

Halloween Fairy (15)b

If Mummy and Daddy hadn’t piled my special pumpkin pie-dish with sufficient yumminess – I was going to get Mariella to sing! Now THAT would have been scary.

Looks like the greedy mouses have eaten far too many of their treats already!

Halloween treats (4)

You know, some people really think there ARE real ghosts out there – me? I don’t believe a word of it . . .

Halloween treats (7)

. . . but sometimes, if I squint my eyes and peer sideways, I think I CAN see ghosty guineas . . . one thing is for sure, they are NOT getting MY treats! The very idea!

Halloween treats (8)

What a spectacularly successful Halloween we had! All that scareyfying and treat nibbling has made me hungry!

Halloween treats (12)b

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid . . . .

Fairy Gets A Helping Handy!

It’s a bit much, one can’t even enjoy a nice gentle stroll around the kitchen table searching for Mariella’s secret salad stash without bumping into something some careless person has left lying about.

Who left this here then? And, more to the point, what on earth is it?

Handy Fairy 2 (1)

What does it say on this here label?

Oh! ‘Handle with care’ and ‘Hand wash only’.

Handy Fairy 2 (2)

Maybe if I just take a closer look at this bit over here . . .

Handy Fairy 2 (4)

Those bright red blobs look just like Mummy’s extra special ‘Going out once in a Blue Moon’ shiny finger nails.

Handy Fairy 2 (9)

Hummmph – and that chain thingy looks very much like her special – ‘What on earth do you want for Christmas this year’, bracelet! Charming!

Just a minute – let’s examine all the evidence. Mummy’s finger nails, Mummy’s wrist. Ooo err, it can’t be –  can it? IT IS!!!!!

Handy Fairy 2 (11)

Eeeeeeeeeeeek – Mummy’s hand has dropped off!

She was always saying that she wore her fingers to the bone keeping up with my modest dietary requests.

Don’t panic . . . do not panic! DADDDDDDYYYYYYY – quick! There’s a hand on the loose!

Handy Fairy 2 (8)

Errr, I was only, err, teasing. I knew it wasn’t really Mummy’s real hand. I DID!

Mummy is busy clicking away with the ‘Box that Captures Fairy Magical Moments’ thing, and she needs BOTH hands for that.

Handy Fairy 2 (5)

Panic over. Not that I was actually panicking you understand. Picnicking maybe – but not panicking!!!

It’s actually amazingly nice and soft and snuggly . . .

Handy Fairy 2 (13)

. . . and those little charms things look good enough to eat!

Goodness – all this exploring, YAWN, makes a fearless Fairy very tired. Time for a little . . .

Handy Fairy 2 (15)

. . . Handy, snooze zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Handy Fairy 2 (16)

5 hours later . . . yawn  . . . stretch . . . this wonderful handy pad snuggle cosy was specially hand crafted for Fairy by my best friend Jenny, and will come in handy for when Mummy and Daddy are too busy for cuddles. It’s FHANDTASTIC!

Fairy Discovers Some Smugglers!

Hummph! Has my super sized, snuggly SMUGG boot shrunk? I can’t seem to get in to it properly.

Just a minute, there are some kind of furry obstruction type things getting in my way. Fearless Fairy will have to investigate – gulp!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (2)

Oh I might have known – a pair of Mousies!

What on earth were you two up to in MY boot? Be very careful before you reply – this is a Fairy Family Friendly Blog!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (3)

Oh I see, you were out for a walk and got tired and needed somewhere cosy to lay your pointy little heads.

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (4)

Hummph again – very likely – I don’t think!

Well you can jolly well extricate yourselves from out of my boot and be quick about it. I am overdue my pre-pre-pre-tea snuggly snooze.

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (5)

Pfhoof! I still can’t seem to fit properly . . . there’s something else . . . uff . . . lumpy and very furry . . . stuck back here . . .

If I am not out in five seconds flat, shout for MUMMY!!!!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (8)

Minty and Monty! OUT you come!

Well, well, well! What the dickens? This isn’t some public meeting boot you know. The cheek of it! Don’t you have a posh Cheese House to go to?

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (10)

You can all jolly well sit out here and make extra sure no one else creeps in to disturb my snooze.

Right then, I am going for my little . . . Oh no – not more obstructions!


This one’s got ears – very little EARS! And it has lots of them – EEEEEK!!!!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (12)

Aaaaaagh – there’s a herd of them!

Come on. OUT, you furry, squeaky road blocks!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (14)

I might have known – it’s those Pesky Baby Mices!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (15)

Look here Baby Mabel, it’s no good you giggling like that – it’s not that funny!

And you, Marmaduke, stop all that rolling about on the floor – you’ll wear the carpet out!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (18)

Right mice type persons, sit nicely and entertain yourselves for 5 hours or so.

It is definitely time for my NAP!

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (20)

Petunia! What ARE you doing up there? You, you . . .

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (23)

Oh you are going to watch over me and keep my dreams sweet and lovely and full of beautiful golden sunshine, type stuff.

Oh – how sweet! It is really difficult to be grumpy when they are so adoring.

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (22)

Okay, here’s the plan. You mices have a lovely family snooze  – over there, while I try to get some peace and quiet in my boot.

Right then, that’s that sorted. Night, night. Yawn.

Mouses in the Smugg Boot! (25)

Oh my goodness – What NOW????

NO! No you jolly well can’t keep me company and check I am all tucked-in and warm and cosy and . . .

Fairy’s Feeling Smugg!

I was just having a quiet nose around the house and came across this interesting object. Now what ever can it be?

SMUGG Fairy! (2)

Now then, I might just have a little look into that interesting top bit.

SMUGG Fairy! (11)

Ah, just as I suspected – methinks it looks like a perfect Mariella-free snuggling zone. Onwards and upwards!

SMUGG Fairy! (12)

Can you see me mummy?

SMUGG Fairy 2 (2)

This is so comfy, I might get it fitted with wheels – vroooooooooooooom!

Perfect for long walks!

SMUGG Fairy! (5)

Or perhaps I could address my loyal followers:

“Friends, Romans, Country-pigs, lend me your salad”.

“My fellow piggy’s – ask not what your country can do for you – ask rather what it can do for me? Or something similar!”

SMUGG Fairy 2 (6)

What a wonderful view – I can spy my super salady supper snacks from way up here.

SMUGG Fairy! (8)b

And I can snuggle right in – and keep my nose safe and warm.

SMUGG Fairy 2 (4)

This super Smugg Fairy-size bootee is so cosy, I might just move-in. Ha! The boot’s on the other feet now!

SMUGG Fairy 2 (7)

Another Special Delivery for Fairy!

What do we have here then? Looks like a fan has sent me another present – all the way from Germany!

It’s a goodly sized box. I wonder what it could be! Whatever it is, it’s sure to be exciting.

I hope it’s salad. I have it on very good authority that German salad is exceptionally tasty!!!!

Malilla's surprise parcel (3)

Can you locate the label, Mariella? Does it say ‘TO FAIRY’? It does?

Be very careful that the box doesn’t give way under your enormous bulk!

Malilla's surprise parcel (4)

Move over – let the Fairy see the present. Now what do we have here?

Malilla's surprise parcel (11)

Yes, very interesting – lots of paper – just what I wanted! PAPER!!!!

Malilla's surprise parcel (13)

Bit more paper . . .

Malilla's surprise parcel (15)

. . . and plenty of it. It’s obviously needs lots of protection – is it a Piggy?

Malilla's surprise parcel (16)

Wow – MUMMY, LOOK! A bright pink fleece cuddle-blankie! And just my size! PERFECT!

Malilla's surprise parcel (17)

What’s this then? I’ll lower it down on this rope Mariella, get ready to catch it!

Malilla's surprise parcel (25)

Mariella! It’s the snack pack you eat – not the rope. You are a dope! A ‘dope on a rope’ – tee hee!

Malilla's surprise parcel (26)

I’ll just have a little rest before I carry on unpacking – all by myself – without ANY HELP!!!

Malilla's surprise parcel (27)

DOUBLE WOW! There is another super duped pack of yum yums – it’s a carrot tart, perfect for a restorative nibble.

Put those teeth away Marigold – that one’s mine!

Malilla's surprise parcel (30)

What’s that bright red holey thing then?

Malilla's surprise parcel (33)

Now then, are these the instructions? Let me see . . . . hum . . . . ummm . . . . yeees . . . right, hum . . . .

Malilla's surprise parcel (34)

Oh I see, it says in here that it is a lovely ceramic, nightlight holder type ornamental apple.


So you can’t eat it then . . . oh well, perhaps Mummy can use it to make light work of her chores!

Malilla's surprise parcel (36)

Gosh, thank you Auntie Malilla. We really love our parcel and we really love YOU. XXXXXXXXXX

I’ll just have a quick rest while mummy arranges Marigold and Mariella for the group grateful photo.

Malilla's surprise parcel (20)

Actually, the ceramic apple makes a rather good posing podium – I can keep my eye on Mariella from up here!

Everyone say “Grass”!

Malilla's surprise parcel (40)

Up, Up and Away!

Now then my people – let’s see what the weather is going to be like today. If it’s all little fluffy white clouds and gentle cooling breezes, I might initiate the inaugural flight of my brand new, top of the range, super splendiferous Fairycopter. And not a pesky baby mousey in sight!

Fairy on toadstool looking up (1)

Well, I can’t see any reason why not to. All this weather watching can be a real pain in the neck.

Fairy on toadstool looking up (2)

Time for the pre-flight checks:

    • Sitting all cosy
    • Nice and warm and snugly
    • Lots of in-flight snacks and a few nibbles – just in case
    • Still no pesky mouses –

It’s time for Fairy-on-manoeuvres! Let’s GO! Up, up and away! Roger, Wilko and out!

I know, I KNOW – keep the pointy end behind me.

Fairy and her helicopter! (7)

Goodness me, you can see for miles and miles up here.

This is fun – Whooosh! Can you see me mummy? I think I’ve got the knack of this flying malarkey.

Fairy flights 2 L

I’m holding my attitude now . . . and travelling at 350 Top-Knots per hour.

I must have gone a bit further than I thought – looks like the seaside up ahead!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee – move aside Mr Seagull, Fairy is coming through – Whoooooooooooooooooooo!!

Fairy flights Fish chips

There’s Mummy down there with her camera thingy – must be time for my best grassy smile . . .

. . . MUMMMMMYYYYYYY! Are you watching me? Mummmmmmy – I’m up here!!!

What do you mean – it’s time for my bath????? No thank you – I haven’t quite finished putting the ‘copter through it’s paces.

Mind you, it’s a bit chilly, can someone turn that fan off, please?

Fairy flights over sea

I am just going to test the night flying capabilities. Are you watching me?

Fairy flights moon2

The Next Day.

Ooooooooooooops. How was I supposed to know it needed fuel? Can’t it make do with yummy grass and fresh salad, like little me? Lucky that tractor was on hand. I can’t see why they thought I needed an extra ‘toe off the beach’ though?! I’ve got just the right number thank you very much.

Fairy flights tractor

Ah good – home all safe and sound. Well one thing is for sure – I will be keeping my beautifully manicured little feet on terra firma-fleece now, at least until I’ve had my full Fairy breakfast!

Fairy and her helicopter! (1)

Piggy In The Middle!

Right Ho my hearties – it’s time to pose for our annual official portrait picture photo thingy.

Try to look stately and imposing Marigold. Just like me.

Everyone say “Fairy”!

Three British Pigs! (13)

Mummy wanted us to squeeze together a bit.

Fufff. Trust Mariella to take things too far. And I do not need a comb-over type toupee either thank you!

Three British Pigs! (6)

Right, that’s enough, scatter everyone – it’s time for our snack type rewards!
