The endlessly interesting thing about being surrounded by lots and lots of pesky mousie type babes is – they are very inquisitive critters who are always asking lots of deep and meaningful questions. Mostly concerning cheese it must be said, but occasionally something a little more profound. This morning I was visited by a very earnest young mousie, called Ernest.
Morning Ernest – what’s that? You want to know where Fairyland is? Oh my, this could take some time! Gather all your friends together and we’ll organise a search party.
Now then settle down everywhere and do try to sit still. All your excited whizzing about is making my head go all puffly! Young Ernest here wants to know where Fairyland is and so today we are all going to find out.
First of all, you will need to seek advice and guidence from the Great Piggy from On High – Big Winnie.
Right, you stay here all safe and sound while I, at great personal risk and inconvenience, go and ask Big Winnie the way . . . . . .
Goodness – it does look a very, very long way up there – I might need a little err, help.
Thanks Daddy, now where was I? Oh yes – I call upon you Big Winnie and your boundless insights and wisdom, to help us with our quest.
What was that? We must all be potty??!!!
The Mousies have their first clue and so are quickly scampering off to search diligently among the multitude of fancy pots on Mummy’s kitchen shelves.
Hummm – Fairyland might well be there – but it might also be . . .
Found in a surprise card from a much loved friend. Or . . .
wrapped up tight in your cosiest of dreams.
But this isn’t helping the Mousies now is it – where have they got to I wonder?
The Store Cupboard!
Any signs of Fairyland in here? No? Well perhaps you are looking in the wrong place.
Fairyland must be very, very BIG. It won’t all fit in a cupboard – perhaps you had all better go look for it outside in the wide open spaces of the garden.
I’ll have a quick look in the fridge and check among the contents of the salad drawer while you go see.
SQUEAK – Gosh this looking everywhere is brilliant fun.
SQUEAK – I bet this cave is the entrance to Fairyland – after you!
SQUEAK – Everyone know’s magical things happen inside an egg – so it must be in this nesting-box here!
Humph – nothing!!! Let’s go back inside and pester Auntie Fairy for the answer.
Oh, I see, you searched everywhere, inside and out and still couldn’t find it?
Well my little Quester Mousies – the answer was here all the time!
Fairyland is everywhere!
You just need to believe in magic, share you goodness and love and hey presto – it’s there! Even more importantly – so are you.
And at this precise moment, Fairyland is due to be found in my scritches and a very large snackette. Giddy-up Daddy!
See you soon XXX
