Ho, Ho and thrice Ho! Fairy here, your internationally renowned spirit of Christmas. Well, just to further illustrate what a selfless little bundle of philanthropic joy I am, I’m throwing a Festive Tea Party for Minty and Monty and the Pesky Mousie Babes so they can all show their appreciation for me and all my good works.
Just need to hang a few of these festive looking baubles to make the scene look suitably decorous. Can’t help thinking I am Gilding the Piggy, but Hey Ho, it’s traditional at this time of year.
Mmmmm actually, this bauble stringy stuff is very tasty – nomm nomm. And perfect for a spot of personal dental hygiene – that’s flossing for the uninitiated. Auntie Lisa will approve!
Lets just double check the catering arrangements – woolly cakes and glass decorations for the micey guests and fresh salad leaves for me – perfect!
Hark! Do I hear the deafening pitter-patter of millions of thunderous tiny paws approaching? I’d better go and greet my guests. I’ll be back for that tasty lettuce in a moment.
Oh – err, hello Mr Bear. I wasn’t aware I had invited you as an official gate crasher. Hummph, **thinks** – better hide the Sherry!
We are having Tea at the top table today. Don’t worry about the climb, Mummy will give us lift up there.
Right everyone, lets have a group portrait of the grown-ups.
And now one with the whole lot of mouseys. Look! We are all wearing matching ears!
Everyone say SALAD!
Oh what joy it is to be such a popular Piggy.
Ready, steady . . . wait for it . . . let’s get noshing!
Oh hello Marmaduke what do you think you are doing in my “seconds” bowl?
MUMMMMMMEEEEEE – Marmaduke needs to, err, ‘GO’!
Hummph – You would have thought he would have thought to ‘go’ before he came! Or come before he went or . . . well, oh you know – GO!!!!
What was that Marmaduke? Oh it’s okay Mummy, he doesn’t need to ‘Go’ anymore.
Oh for goodness sake, Petunia – how many more times – Mice do not like Salad!!!!
Mummy – Mr Bear found the Sherry – this party is getting out of paw!
Oooops – **tremor** hold tight! What was that? Some sort of Earthquake thingy? Yes Minty, I’m sure the Earth did move for you too!
Mummy – everything just jiggled. Was that Daddy putting his foot down again?
Goodness us – **lurch** there it goes again. Hold tight everyone.
MUMMMMMMMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEE – I know I am famous for my savoir fare, but this is getting ridiculous! All this furry table top moving about malarkey is making me feel quite queasy.
What was that Mummy? Oh, I see – it appears we have an extra special Big Guest Star featuring in today’s story. Well, no one told me and I am supposed to be The Star after all. Wait ‘till my Agent hears about this!
Quick, over here everyone – apparently it’s time to go and meet our special guest – with the Big Personality.
Big Personality???!!! Just between you and me Monty – I think Mummy is starting to loose it!
Mummy – where is it then? This special guest of whom you speak so eloquently?
Whoooooooooooa – Crikey! Er, I think I might be a little bit bit scared at this point!
Actually – it turns out ‘Winnie’ is a really Big Softy and apart from the odd unexpected jiggle, she made the perfect location for our High Tea Party. And being as how Winnie is so lovely, she has agreed to share her tea with me.
Pity she has such a tiny appetite!
Merry Christmas everyone.
I hope you, your family and all your furry Piggy friends have had a lovely peaceful and loving Christmas holiday. I can’t wait to share more of my pics and stories with you in the New Year!
Winnie was adopted by Daddy for Mummy from Sarah. A Big Surprise for her on Christmas Morning!
