Our Very Own Calendar Girl!

Fairy is well known the world over for her generosity and philanthropic good works. This year she has truly excelled herself!

Not only does she feature on the 2011 Guinea Lynx Calendar, a rather fetching portrait as Miss April, enhanced by having the beautiful Marigold on the cover, she is also immensely proud to spearhead the Thistle Cavies Rescue Calendar. Helping to raise funds and awareness both in the USA and here in the UK.

Both Calendars are packed with photos of beautiful Piggy’s and are sure to bring a piggyific smile throughout the year.

As a further step towards Piggy Saintliness, Fairy has requested that any prospective showers of festive present giving, rather than being spent on her, should be directed towards these good causes.

A donation will make a difference and the gift of a Calendar for your family and friends will help spread both the word and a bit of Fairy Magic.

Fairy Princess And The Pea!

As the nights draw in and Fairy’s thoughts turn to ensuring maximum night time comfort and cosiness, The Fairy Palace has taken delivery of a brand new sleep device, guaranteed to provide suitable softiness and snoozability.

Here we find our pint sized hero about to embark on its very first test drive – with a little “help” from the mousey babes.

Princess and the pea Mouses (1)

Squeak, squeak – goodness – this new bed is really soft and warm and cosy – we are sure Fairy is going to love it.

Princess and the pea Mouses (2)

Actually – she may love it a little too much and there won’t be any space left for us. Perhaps we had better add a finishing touch of our own! Now where did we put that peapod?

Shush, quiet everybody – judging from that steadily increasing munching noise – she’s on her way.

Hello Fairy Fans everywhere. Fairy, your very own superstar piggy wiggy here. Not sure why you had to wait so long for my Grand Entrance – but all good things come to those who . . . oh, something profound and what-not. Right, on with today’s episode.

You might have noticed that my usual stack of cuddle cup beds arrangement has been replaced by a Super De-lux, Made to Measure, Five (at least), Poster Bed especially created for little me by Jenny at her highly appropriately named Piggy Palace. And jolly smart it looks too, if you don’t mind me saying. Even if you do mind me saying – it IS jolly posh – so there!

Princess and the pea Fairy (11)

Right Ho my little bed warmer type mousies – move over – here comes the Queen of the Fairies. Let the Piggy see the Pillow!

Princess and the pea Fairy (7)

Oh, ouch, ooch, aw, garooo, who on earth put a stonking great big rock in here? This mattress is so hard and lumpy – I will never be able to nod off.

Princess and the pea Fairy (18)c

There is nothing for it – I had better organise a thorough search.

Come on you lazy lumps – give me a paw or six with this mattress.

Princess and the pea Fairy (13)

Nothing there!

Oh how disappointing – we will never get to the bottom of the problem!

Princess and the pea Fairy (29)

What’s that Petunia – someone has “peed in the bed”?????

Oh, “Put a Pea in the bed”, thank goodness for that!

I knew that was what you meant – I was just making a jolly jest type thing.

Ha Ha, peed/pea – what a funny quip – gulp!

Princess and the pea Fairy (28)

Tish, tsk – naughty mousey type nuisances.

Fancy playing such a fiendish trick on me – you can jolly well stay down there on your Cheese Chair and watch while I have a lovely snooze.

Princess and the pea Fairy (33)

Zzzzzzzz, snuffle, yawn, what a “lovely snooze” I am having  **loudly**

Even better without lots of tails swishing about everywhere causing a draft.

Princess and the pea Fairy (16)

Oh, it’s no good – I can’t be mean to those little scritchers.

I’m just a great big lovable softie and anyway, it might get a bit chilly without them!

Princess and the pea Fairy (32)

Okay then, I am sure you have all learnt your lesson – back in everyone – lets try again.  And Marmaduke – watch what you are doing with that peapod!Princess and the pea Fairy (17)b

Can’t be too careful though – I’ll just check that the Integral Fridge has been stocked-up. Perfect – just the right amount  of nibbles! That will help stave off any night starvation issues.

Princess and the pea Fairy (18)

Hold it – can somebody plump the pillows up for me?

Princess and the pea Fairy (20)

Perfect! Now, where was I? Oh yes . . .

Princess and the pea Fairy (18)b

Night, night Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Fairy Makes An Important Announcement!

My dearly beloved people. You have all been gathered here today, at my great personal inconvenience I might add, to hear the latest of my very important proclamations delivered on my specially commissioned Soapbox. An Announcement of such import that even little ol’ me is getting very excited! Tee hee.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (10)b

Humph, you two have finally deigned to put in an appearance, have you? I was in full flow and just getting to a really good dramatic bit when, in you barge, willy nilly, making me all loose my drift.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (5)

I’ll just need to have a bit of a rest and gather my thoughts. I will need a big basket to put them in because some days I have lots of thoughts – mostly relating to food it must be said, but there are lots of them, hence the need for a jolly big basket! Now where was I? Was it something to do with food?

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (1)

Oh actually, that reminds me of the time I addressed the massed ranks of local salad growers, exhorting them to redouble their efforts to keep me supplied with light snacks. What a marvellous speech that was – they all enjoyed it so much, they threw lettuces and tomatoes! Kept me going for a day or two, that did.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (2)b

What was that Marigold? Which point would you like me to get to exactly?

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (6)

Oh yes, that reminds me of the occasion I was guest speaker at the Grand Order of Pointy Things annual convention. What an unalloyed triumph that was too.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (7)

There was I, surrounded by enthusiastic purveyors of all things pointy, when all suddenly and without warning I was unanimously elected Piggy with the Pointiest Finger Nails of the year, with certificates, major awards and a medal type thing.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (8)

Mariella, you can admire them at closer quarters if you wish.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (8)b

Or even closer. These extra special pointy ones come pre-adorned with optional Piggy Poo adornment.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (8)c

Err, right, back to the very serious and highly important, if not world shattering then jolly well close to it, ‘Announcement’.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (10)

I’d better just make sure the autocue operator has managed to keep up. It wouldn’t do to miss any dramatic bits out.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (14)

Right you two, places please. Remember to look all excited and anxious, hanging on my every word and generally paying attention and not wandering off. That means you too Marigold. MARIGOLD!

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (16)

Right, that’s better. Do at least try and keep all lined up neatly.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (18)

Just time for a quick photo opportunity for the massed rank of the paparazzi, so Mummy can capture this truly historic Announcement.

Try not to crack the lense with your smile Mariella.

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (19)

Okay, I’m ready for the big finish. The dramatic tension has reached breaking point. Nerves have been suitably shredded sufficiently and national TV and Radio have interrupted their transmissions to record these historic words -

Get on your soapbox Fairy! (23)

We will be holding a Grand Fairy-Fest Piggy Party at my house next year – and you are all invited! Timings to be finalised in due course. There will of course be tea and cakes and what not, for the grown ups.

Salads’R’Us, superior caterers to the top piggies, have been booked. They will provide mixed salads, plain salads, 4 varieties of hay, green salads, fresh grass lightly chilled, tomato salads, leafy salads, tossed broccoli salad,  . . .  oh and due to Health & Safety – guest piggy’s will have to bring their own nibbles!

Book your cuddle cups – NOW!
