Fairy Keeps Christmas Under Wraps!

Hello there my people – Seasons Greetings from Fairyland on Christmas Day.

We WERE going to have a very civilised present opening session this morning. Unfortunately, piggy excitement seems to have displaced patience and decorum! So instead of my usual beautifully written and wonderfully photographed story, we are happy to share some seasonal snaps starring me and my piggy chums!

Here we all are – starting to get a tiny bit GIDDY.

Oi, Bear, move your great big bottom, that one says ‘Fairy’ on the label. (Actually, Fairy is convinced that ALL the labels say ‘Fairy’!)

 

Hummmm – this looks rather interesting. Can you guess what it is yet?

 

Wowwweee – IT’S A REAL LIVE FAIRY CRASH PAD TO CUDDLE UP IN!!!!!

 

Mine’s lovely, but maybe a teeny weeny bit . . . ‘snug’. I don’t suppose you have one in a slightly larger size?

 

Synchronised crash pad testing. Waggle those bottoms girls!

 

Wooooooh – Mummy, I LOVE this one!

 

Don’t look now Bear, but this present looks a bit fishy!

 

Room for one more? We’re having a whale of a time today.

 

All the best things come in little packages. Especially, ME!

 

Who says I’m looking a bit ‘down in the mouth?’

 

If everybody loves a present – they’ll be bound to love little ol’ MEEEEE!

 

Here I am – going cheeeeep!

 

Time for a very light snackette, in between openings.

 

Presents are very extra smashing, but you can’t beat playing with the packaging.

 

I’ll just test this one for snoozzzzzzzzzzzzability.

 

What a super duper wonderful Christmas Day – we feel so lucky having a present EACH!

Thank you to everyone everywhere and especially Auntie Jenny from ‘Piggy Palace’ who made our amazing, super-duper crash pads x x x

Fairy Goes A-carrolling!

It would appear that The Big Day is nearly upon us – the time when all good little piggies get lots of extra cuddles and lots of love. Much like any other day then! However, there is a catch to this Big Day. Mummy says, that for no good reason I can see, we have to carry out a family tradition  and ‘sing for our supper’.

Our Mousie friends are the perfect captive audience in their festively decorated Mouse House. So, with the errr ‘assistance’ of Pixie and Bear, here goes . . .

‘Ding dong piggywigs on high’ – No, no, no – you’re singing flat Bear. Let’s try another carol.

‘We three pigs of’ – No, no, no! Sound as if you mean it Pixie. Another!

‘O come all ye piggies, joyful and pop-corn-ing’. NO!
Not that one . . . this one. It goes something like this:

 

‘I saw three pigs and mousies too

Eating lots of salad stew

Oh what a very odd to do,

On Christmas Eve, in the morning.

 

Oh, here we come a-pop-corn-ing,

Among the salad leaves so green;

Oh, here we come a-pop-corn-ing,

On Christmas Eve, in the morning’.

 

Hummmph, probably could do with a tiny, little bit of polishing!

Right, after me, from the top, give it everything, big breath in, sing from your diagram, and other musical type instructions and what have you.

Errr Pixie, while Fairy waves her baton about in an ever more frenetically random circles, let’s go see what Mr Bear has been up to?

Looks suspiciously like it might be Sherry Time!

Sniff, sniff. Oh no! Just as I suspected. As if it wasn’t bad enough having one secret Sherry slurper around here – looks like he’s got company.

Ooooer – my head hurts. And why is everything starting to spin?

Mr Bear has the right idea – time to go horizontal!

Oh goodness gracious. Where on earth has that pesky pawed Pixie got to I ask myself?

Ooooof, splutter, splutter, spluff. Pixie – enough of your unseemly drunk and disorderly type behavior, thank you very much!

Thank goodness everything gets back to normal tomorrow!!!!

‘Twas Three Nights Before Christmas!

Greetings from a fabulously festive Fairyland my loyal and faithful followers.

Just so you get an idea of what’s what, it’s almost Christmas. Last year Pixie and Bear were too new and giddy to fully appreciate what a special time this is. Unfortunately, Daddy must have whispered the ‘present’ word within their hearing and so they are over excited and determined to find theirs NOW. The hunt is on!

This very one says ‘Fairy’ on it so it’s MY present Bear, NOT yours.

Stand by to repel pirate pigs. Oi!, Bear, sling your hook. It’s not up here either?

Hummmpf – Pixie – I can see you. Kindly desist from taking not so crafty nibbles out of my pressie.

And just for your information, only good piggies get presents at Christmas.

Better luck next year!!!!

Not to worry. Fairy is only teasing. Bear and Pixie will be getting more than their fair share of Christmas cheer.

We all hope you and your piggies have a wonderful time too – Merry Christmas x x x

A Fairy In The Post!

Can you just hold on a minute while I examine this marvellous card that arrived for moi today?

Hehehe! Not only is it for ME, it’s full of ME too – and even a bit of Pixie and Bear as well!

Look! There we are, full of festive-ness!

Thank you very much indeed, Poppet and Rosie! I LOVE my new card and all the Christmassy bits in it – and I especially love the back, you really are a pair of gorgeous girls! and you are wonderful!

Big lots of Christmas-love to YOU both (and to my Auntie Debra too) xxx

Santa Paws Grotto!

I understand it is traditional to pay a visit to a certain Mr Santa Paws type person at this time of year.

My invaluable advice would be to go and see him as soon as possible so you can give him all your special requests nice and early. Although why this request process differs from my usual daily talk to Mummy, I do not know.

Here I am all nice and comfy, having a quiet word in his ear. It does seem unusually pesky piggy free and peaceful around here.

Dear Santa Paws, I need you to organise three tons of organic carrots, a few dozen extra juicy cucumbers, plenty of mixed lettuce leaves, a 100 bales of your finest meadow hay, 126 jolly cosy beds, 253 cuddle cups, two lawns worth of munchy leaves of the greenest ever grass . . . and . . .

Whoooa there. What on earth caused that soft furnishings related earthquake?

Oh, I might have known.

Do keep still, Pixie, I haven’t finished my very important discussions with the beardy one yet. In fact I’d hardly even got started with my basic essentials Christmas ‘must have without fail or else there will be big bother’, wish list.

Oh Pixie, I appreciate that all this talk of food may be making you peckish, but do stop nibbling his beard.

Now, where was I?

Oh yes, can you please also organise a very, very, very big sack of cereals, a few 1000 bunches of juicy dandelions . . .

Sorry Bear, yes I do appreciate that you have been extraordinarily patient and everything, but I haven’t finished. We haven’t even posed for a Christmas Card type family photo portrait yet.

Pixie, that may well be your ‘best side’, but I do have to finish my list.

Have I missed anything important do you think?

DAAAADY! Do something about Pixie – NOW!

She’s going? About time too!

Watch where you’re pointing that rear end Pixie.

Err, I feel I should warn you Fairy, a certain rather rotund type Bear is about to invade your space.

Oh good grief. What bear faced cheek! Get this furry mountain out of my ear!!!

Oooofh! There are times when a well mannered little Fairy just can’t take any more – DAAAADDY!

Order! You’ve got to hand it to him!

Come on you two, it’s time for our official Santa Pawtrait, gather round NOW.

Pixie, what are you up to? OH! Well, you should have thought about that before we started.

Oh for goodness sake you two. Lets get the portrait thingy over and done with and then I can get back to making my demands, er requests, of that Mr Christmas type Santa Paws person.

Everyone say ‘Salad’!

Yes, I know tinsel is itchy – serves you both right for being so obstreperous?

Now where was I? Oh yes, 245 blankies, 126 tasty nibbles incase of emergency hunger pangs between snacks . . .

And why, I hear you all asking, does one little Piggy need all these provisions and treats? Well I want them delivering to all the Guinea Pig Rescues and Communities who help my furry friends all around the world so that Piggies less fortunate than us can be helped to have a nice life too.

A very Happy Santa Paws day to you all, may it be filled to brimming with Fairy-Magic!
