Oh, We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

SQUEEK – Oh this is the life. A holiday by the sea. Peace, perfect peace. Nothing to do but relax, lots of lovely sun and no one to boss us about. What could possibly disturb this idyllic tranquillity?


Yoo hooooo – Mousies, don’t panic, your beloved Fairy is here.

This looks just the spot to li-lo for a while.


SQUEAK – Oh well, it was good while it lasted. They do say ‘Life’s a Beach’!

Looks like our holiday just started to get ‘interesting’.


What’s all this then? Oh no, no, no. We can’t have itsy bitsy little undersized sand pies cluttering-up the beach now can we?


Right, everyone pay attention and everything. There has been far too much slacking going on.


And, more importantly, it has come to my notice that the sand pies on this here beach are far too small.

If we are going to win the inaugural Fairy’s Biggest Sand Castle on the Beach competition, there will need to be some changes.


SQUEAK – well this one looks plenty big enough to me – I can hardly see over it.


SQUEAK – resistance is futile!

When Fairy has a ‘Big Idea”, it’s a lot quicker and certainly an awful lot quieter, just to let her get on with it.


Hummmph – very artistic, but we need it to be much, much, MUCH bigger!


Goodness, that was quick. Better, but still not quite the ticket.


Oh I see the problem here. You can’t reach up any higher.


Well luckily for you, Sir Plantagenet Big-Mouse is here to lend his mighty paw.


Oh I do hope he gets a move on – it must be nearly snack time.


Finished? Brilliant! About time too.


It was lucky I had arranged for Sir Plantagenet Big-Mouse and Primrose to show you the way.

And now it’s time for the grand prize giving ceremony.


Ahem – it gives one great pleasure to declare ME the winner of the highly prestigious Fairy’s . . .


Ooooh – what’s this bit for?


Obviously I really do know of course – just checking that you are on the ball young Buster m’lad.


Ah yes – clearly, it is a super duper, 5 star luxury extra-cosy beach apartment Sand Castle for entertaining A-List celebrities.


You can all carry on doing whatever I might require you to be doing – and be quick about it.


I’ll just rest my eyes for a few min . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


SQUEAK – phew, that worked jolly well. Let’s enjoy a bit of peace, while it lasts.

Give us a kiss!

  1. Oh Fairy – these seasidey pics are fab!… Love seeing the mousies all lined up in their deck chairs & some flat out on li lo’s 😀 ….. And of course, you, telling the mousies what to do! Haha… I did spy Marigold peeping out from undercover, in the boat – Bet she wanted to keep out of trouble…
    Mr Bear looked a bit “tired” – probably the sherry! 😀
    Fairy, the weather peeps are saying that we will be getting some warmer weather soon – So, you & everyone, get ready for it, as it may only last a few days….
    Ps… Love your fleecey sand castle & the mousies at the top, lol xxx

  2. Ooooh Fairy, what a lovely adventure…and in the sunshine too. I don’t know how you do it 🙂

    The mousies are looking well and good to see Marigold enjoying the sunshine. I love the cosy castle and what a great look out for the mousies.

    Lol, had to agree with Debra above about Mr Bear looking ‘tired’

    Thank you, you’ve really go me in the holiday mood for my last day at school tomorrow. xxxx

  3. Ha ha ha ha! Have just noticed the gravy boat…is that Monty sailing it? xx

  4. Don’t ask me, Auntie Alimouse, I can’t see a thing! Actually, come to think of it, Marigold WAS going to sail the Gravy Boat but due to the . . . her . . . . largesse, rotundness, or whatever you would like to call it, she couldn’t fit in.
