Oh! You’ve caught me in the act! I am just undoing another present! It must be for me, what with pink packaging and what-not.
It tastes a bit funny. That’s odd! It isn’t an edible gift!
Well, let’s be having a sniff under here . . . pfhoof, it smells SHINY!
It’s a HAT! Well, it could be a hat! I rather think it suits me.
No, it isn’t a hat . . . right . . . what the dickens IS it then?
It’s a CROWN! Is it . . . could it be . . . for ME?
What? It’s for Mr Bear? No! No, no and thrice no!!
Muuuum! If I let Mr Bear wear my Noddy hat, can I wear the crown?
What do you mean, ‘When the others have had a go’?
Beautiful Princess Marigold! Sorry – it’s too high! It makes your face look tall!
And Regal Princess Mariella! It’s too low! It’ll squash your ears!
And now it’s MY go! Perfect! Please allow me to introduce myself, Princess Fairy, Queen of the Piggies, Bears, Cups and Saucers of the Kitchen Dresser Kingdom!
Does this mean I get to have servants who will obey all my commands? Oh good!
You there, yes, YOU! I’d like a big bowl of salad now . . . and another two big bowls full, but not quite as big as my bowl full, for the Pretend Princesses, Marigold and Mariella. And when you have done that we would all like a load of hay to play in. Please! Thank you! And don’t forget to courtesy before you go!
One just can’t get the staff these days.
A great big Royal Thank You to my friend Jenny for sending me this most perfect of gifts. I am extremely grateful. My very own bejewelled crown – it’s perfect!
