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!!!!
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!
Move over – let the Fairy see the present. Now what do we have here?
Yes, very interesting – lots of paper – just what I wanted! PAPER!!!!
Bit more paper . . .
. . . and plenty of it. It’s obviously needs lots of protection – is it a Piggy?
Wow – MUMMY, LOOK! A bright pink fleece cuddle-blankie! And just my size! PERFECT!
What’s this then? I’ll lower it down on this rope Mariella, get ready to catch it!
Mariella! It’s the snack pack you eat – not the rope. You are a dope! A ‘dope on a rope’ – tee hee!
I’ll just have a little rest before I carry on unpacking – all by myself – without ANY HELP!!!
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!
What’s that bright red holey thing then?
Now then, are these the instructions? Let me see . . . . hum . . . . ummm . . . . yeees . . . right, hum . . . .
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!
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.
Actually, the ceramic apple makes a rather good posing podium – I can keep my eye on Mariella from up here!
Everyone say “Grass”!
