In The Beginning . . .

It has been a little over a year since Fairy left us. There hasn’t been a day we haven’t thought about her and remembered her funny little ways, the love and joy, and all the magic she brought – not only to us but also to everyone who knew her, far and wide. If you […]

Oh, We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – Episode 2

Meanwhile – back at the beach.   SQUEAK – Sssssh, keep the noise down chaps and chapesses. We don’t want to rouse the ‘sleeping beauty’ from her slumbers just yet, do we?   Asleep? Moi? Oh no . . . I was just resting my eyes a bit.   Now where was I? Oh yes, […]

Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – The Finale!

Following a particularly vigorous and rumbustious game of Pirates, peace and tranquility has returned to our holiday idyll. Although with a certain young lady in attendance, albeit briefly.   Oh yes, this all looks very pleasant. I particularly like Marigold’s new bikini. Very fetching indeed.   Enough of all this indolence. It’s high time to […]

Oh, We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

Dear Fairy

It is with the utmost sadness I am writing to tell you our dear, sweet, beautiful and very magical Fairy passed away this morning.

Leaving Comments!

We have had to add some new security software to block the several 100’s of spam user registrations we were receiving daily and subsequently this has caused problems for genuine people logging in to leave a comment.

A Bus Load Of Flowers!

Now then Pixie my old fruit. Kinda peace-able in these here parts of late. It’s been very quiet – too quiet some would say. Happen there’s a storm blowing in to town. Either that or a double decker bus. Between you, me and the salad bowl, I think there may be a very special delivery […]

Our Beautiful Bear

It is with the saddest heart I have to write the words we all dread. We have lost our dear, sweet, cuddly Bear. How could it be just a few days ago when I was spring cleaning the Piggery accompanied by a noisy rumbly thundering noise – it was Bear, zooming back and forth, popcorning […]

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.

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 […]

‘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.

You might be forgiven for thinking we’d all gone away for good this summer when actually we were all just very busy indeed.

Hay Fairy!

As we all know, Guinea Pigs eat a lot of hay. Indeed, it should be available at all times so they can graze throughout the day. Fairy has a particular way of enjoying her hay. As well as eating it she likes to burrow into it, enjoying the sensation of the hay tickling her back! […]

Baby Fairy!

Fairy was born on June 11th 2009. Brillo, her mum, was among five guinea pigs we rescued from an intolerable situation. She gave birth to 3 babies, Fairy, Flash and Jiff, a little boy piggy. It didn’t take long to realise Fairy was blind and a few days after that it was apparent she had […]

It has been a very long winter. Five months of what seemed like perpetual cold, wet and windy weather. According to the experts however, this weekend promises to be the warmest of the year so far! A mini heat wave no less! Good! The gang (piggy and people alike) can’t wait to get back to […]

Handle With Care!

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like! It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she […]

Push Ups!

Although, like most guinea pigs, Fairy’s favourite pastime is eating she is also very aware of the importance of exercise. And what could be better than combining the two! Fairy’s little hay tin contains some chopped ‘special blend’ hay. Each ‘Push Up’ results in a small treat! The perfect combination! What a great game!

Christmas Comes But Twice A Year!

Weigh up!

Fairy is weighed regularly to ensure she is maintaining a healthy weight and not loosing any of those precious grams. With any guinea pig weight loss is a cause for worry, but with Fairy being very small at 680g, around half the size of a standard piggy, I would be doubly concerned – especially knowing […]

Hedge-pigs!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky! Many garden hedges are threadbare and unkempt. Regular. Conventional. A barrier between your garden and your neighbour. Boring, dull, lifeless! Functional, unexceptional, middling and ‘hedge-like! What […]

How it all began.

Fairy was born on June 11th 2009. Her mum, Brillo, was a ‘rescue piggy’, taken from an unpleasant situation, along with her many assorted brothers, sisters and other relations. Here’s her Dad, Ernie! Fairy was a very small piggy. As well as being blind and deaf she also had many problems with her teeth. Her […]

Hay Fairy!

As we all know, Guinea Pigs eat a lot of hay. Indeed, it should be available at all times so they can graze throughout the day. Fairy has a particular way of enjoying her hay. As well as eating it she likes to burrow into it, enjoying the sensation of the hay tickling her back! […]

Baby Fairy!

Fairy was born on June 11th 2009. Brillo, her mum, was among five guinea pigs we rescued from an intolerable situation. She gave birth to 3 babies, Fairy, Flash and Jiff, a little boy piggy. It didn’t take long to realise Fairy was blind and a few days after that it was apparent she had […]

On Top Of The World!

It has been a very long winter. Five months of what seemed like perpetual cold, wet and windy weather. According to the experts however, this weekend promises to be the warmest of the year so far! A mini heat wave no less! Good! The gang (piggy and people alike) can’t wait to get back to […]

Handle With Care!

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like! It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she […]

Minty’s Marvellous Wedding Dress!

Push Ups!

Although, like most guinea pigs, Fairy’s favourite pastime is eating she is also very aware of the importance of exercise. And what could be better than combining the two! Fairy’s little hay tin contains some chopped ‘special blend’ hay. Each ‘Push Up’ results in a small treat! The perfect combination! What a great game!

Christmas Comes But Twice A Year!

Weigh up!

Fairy is weighed regularly to ensure she is maintaining a healthy weight and not loosing any of those precious grams. With any guinea pig weight loss is a cause for worry, but with Fairy being very small at 680g, around half the size of a standard piggy, I would be doubly concerned – especially knowing […]

Bear Cuddles!

Fairy has always enjoyed being cuddled and enjoys many hours asleep nestling in her Daddy’s hands! Being blind and deaf has its compensations – there’s nothing to distract you.

Hedge-pigs!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky! Many garden hedges are threadbare and unkempt. Regular. Conventional. A barrier between your garden and your neighbour. Boring, dull, lifeless! Functional, unexceptional, middling and ‘hedge-like! What […]

Hay Fairy!

As we all know, Guinea Pigs eat a lot of hay. Indeed, it should be available at all times so they can graze throughout the day. Fairy has a particular way of enjoying her hay. As well as eating it she likes to burrow into it, enjoying the sensation of the hay tickling her back! […]

Baby Fairy!

Fairy was born on June 11th 2009. Brillo, her mum, was among five guinea pigs we rescued from an intolerable situation. She gave birth to 3 babies, Fairy, Flash and Jiff, a little boy piggy. It didn’t take long to realise Fairy was blind and a few days after that it was apparent she had […]

On Top Of The World!

It has been a very long winter. Five months of what seemed like perpetual cold, wet and windy weather. According to the experts however, this weekend promises to be the warmest of the year so far! A mini heat wave no less! Good! The gang (piggy and people alike) can’t wait to get back to […]

Handle With Care!

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like! It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she […]

Push Ups!

Although, like most guinea pigs, Fairy’s favourite pastime is eating she is also very aware of the importance of exercise. And what could be better than combining the two! Fairy’s little hay tin contains some chopped ‘special blend’ hay. Each ‘Push Up’ results in a small treat! The perfect combination! What a great game!

Weigh up!

Fairy is weighed regularly to ensure she is maintaining a healthy weight and not loosing any of those precious grams. With any guinea pig weight loss is a cause for worry, but with Fairy being very small at 680g, around half the size of a standard piggy, I would be doubly concerned – especially knowing […]

Bear Cuddles!

Fairy has always enjoyed being cuddled and enjoys many hours asleep nestling in her Daddy’s hands! Being blind and deaf has its compensations – there’s nothing to distract you.

Hedge-pigs!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky!

Fairy Welcomes A New Princess!

Greetings my loyal and faithful followers. We have an extra special cause to celebrate today – apparently. Not only has mummy presented me with a rather splendid vase of smelly and totally inedible flowers (no – I don’t know why either), but we have a visit from a right royal official celebrity type mousie – […]

Fill ‘er Up, Please!

Look! A lovely friend made me a jolly special Fairy type dinner bowl, just for ME! It’s very nice, although I have to say it is rather lacking in the snacks department. I am only saying, like. Nom, nom, nom! That’s much better! C’mon Pixie and bear, you can help me test my new bowl! […]

Green-Nosed Fairy!

Top’o’the morning, friends and all! I expect you think I have been lazing around all summer, snoozing in a shady corner, or enjoying a spot of warm sun on my back. Well, you would be wrong! You have, I am sure, heard of the saying ‘green fingered’, meaning someone is a dab hand with plants […]

Famous Fairy!

You might be forgiven for thinking we’d all gone away for good this summer when actually we were all just very busy indeed. What with lawn-mowing duties, salad growing and testing the outcomes duties, plus all sorts of untold summery type jobs, these last few wheeks have been somewhat hectic. But we are BACK! It’s […]

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.

Her health deteriorated over Thursday night, but she seemed to enjoy her romp at 7am when she and Fairy went into the Piggy Palace where they both always […]

Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – The Finale!

Following a particularly vigorous and rumbustious game of Pirates, peace and tranquility has returned to our holiday idyll. Although with a certain young lady in attendance, albeit briefly.   Oh yes, this all looks very pleasant. I particularly like Marigold’s new bikini. Very fetching indeed.   Enough of all this indolence. It’s high time to […]

As you know, I am a hay fever sufferer. It isn’t very nice when your dose gets all blocked up or you start sneezing everywhere. I am only allowed to go in the garden in the evening at present, when the pollen is a little less troublesome. Here I am examining the flowers last night. […]

Give Us A Cuddle!

This is especially for you, AliMouse. When Fairy was very small she soon found the comfiest places to snooze. One of those was in the protective arms of Pasquale, the bear. She had no idea how tiny she appeared – and how sweet! Here she is at about 10 weeks of age. You can imagine […]

Everything In The Garden’s Fairy!

Why Is Everything So BIG?!

*Fairy shouting* Errr, ‘scuse me . . . I’m over here! Everything in the garden is so big! Even with Marigold and Mariella’s help, I will not be able to eat this huge carrot. And just look at Big Wilma! Did you ever see such a big guinea pig? I am down here now. Squirrel […]

Hedge-pigs!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky! Many garden hedges are threadbare and unkempt. Regular. Conventional. A barrier between your garden and your neighbour. Boring, dull, lifeless! Functional, unexceptional, middling and ‘hedge-like! What […]

Life On Earth, and beyond!

Fairy enjoys very deep, satisfying sleeps! Her ears can be seen twitching, her toes jigging and she makes tiny little squeak noises – I always hope she is having a nice dream and not a nightmare. Errr, where am I then? It feels as though I am on another planet. The ground is all hard […]

Bear Cuddles!

Fairy has always enjoyed being cuddled and enjoys many hours asleep nestling in her Daddy’s hands! Being blind and deaf has its compensations – there’s nothing to distract you. So once you are in a warm, safe and comfortable snuggle, it is easy to nod off. Before last Christmas, Fairy proclaimed Pasquale Bear as officially […]

Weigh up!

Fairy is weighed regularly to ensure she is maintaining a healthy weight and not loosing any of those precious grams. With any guinea pig weight loss is a cause for worry, but with Fairy being very small at 680g, around half the size of a standard piggy, I would be doubly concerned – especially knowing […]

Meet Mariella!

Mariella joined us in October 2009. A teeny squiff of baby guinea pig, with the biggest round eyes and squidgiest nose you ever did see! Mariella is stunningly beautiful, wearing her gorgeous black, tan and white fur like some glamour model! She has a bold character to match! Mariella marched straight in through the door, […]

Push Ups!

Although, like most guinea pigs, Fairy’s favourite pastime is eating she is also very aware of the importance of exercise. And what could be better than combining the two! Fairy’s little hay tin contains some chopped ‘special blend’ hay. Each ‘Push Up’ results in a small treat! The perfect combination! What a great game!

Handle With Care!

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like! It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she […]

Hay Fairy!

Hummph! Has my super sized, snuggly SMUGG boot shrunk? I can’t seem to get in to it properly. Just a minute, there are some kind of furry obstruction type things getting in my way. Fearless Fairy will have to investigate – gulp! Oh I might have known – a pair of Mousies! What on earth […]

Fairy’s Feeling Smugg!

I was just having a quiet nose around the house and came across this interesting object. Now what ever can it be? Now then, I might just have a little look into that interesting top bit. Ah, just as I suspected – methinks it looks like a perfect Mariella-free snuggling zone. Onwards and upwards! Can […]

Another Special Delivery for Fairy!

What do we have here then? Looks like a fan has sent me another present – all the way from Germany! It’s a goodly sized box. I wonder what it could be! Whatever it is, it’s sure to be exciting. I hope it’s salad. I have it on very good authority that German salad is […]

Up, Up and Away!

Now then my people – let’s see what the weather is going to be like today. If it’s all little fluffy white clouds and gentle cooling breezes, I might initiate the inaugural flight of my brand new, top of the range, super splendiferous Fairycopter. And not a pesky baby mousey in sight! Well, I can’t […]

Piggy In The Middle!

Right Ho my hearties – it’s time to pose for our annual official portrait picture photo thingy. Try to look stately and imposing Marigold. Just like me. Everyone say “Fairy”!

Fairy Takes Percy For A Spin!

What ho! I may be able to fly a carrot through the wide blue skies and beyond – but who would have thought that a real life wooden pig might fly too? Just give me two ticks while I get cleared for take off and locate the accelerator pedal thingy, and check the horn – […]

Fairy And The Tumultuous Tower Of Cosy-Comfort Device!

We find our pals busily sitting around happily doing nothing – but all is not as it seems.  There is a simmering mood of discontent coming inexorably to the boil, emanating from the hairy occupant of the cheese chair. Hummph, Hummmph and thrice Hummmmph! What ails you sweet Fairy? You don’t appear to be your […]

Pigs Might Fly!

Recently, Fairy took her big sisters for a spin on her Magic Carrotty-Comfort-Cushion, which also doubles as a disguised spaceship! Fairy: C’mon everyone, all aboard!

Fairy, The Carroty-Comfort-Cushion and the Cheese-Chair Episode!

Time For Tea, Fairy!

Being a faithful Fairy follower, you will already know that I am well known for being exceptionally fond of my food.

Mine’s A Sweetcorn Leaf!

Fairy Gets More Treasures Than She Bargained For!

Nanny Fairy here people, my good works and kindnesses to bestow. Minty and Monty wanted a quiet day out together today, probably to get me a big prize or plan a huge surprise party for me or something of that me-centred nature. I, of course, volunteered to look after all the baby mices for them. […]

Fairy Grows Grass – On An Industrial Scale!

That grass growing experiment we did recently went very well. The only problem being that there wasn’t quite enough to grow round, so to speak. Actually, there might well have been if Mariella had been put on a strict diet. I know, I was the only one who thought she should be on one! Anyway, […]

Three Pigs In A Home!

Hello my people. I am often asked by someone, what is the ideal number of piggy’s in a household?

Dear The Manager, The Grow-It-Yourself-Grass Company, It is Fairy here again. I recently had the privilege of sampling a tray of your delicious grass, and very good it was too.

It may not have escaped the more astute followers of my Blog that Marigold and Mariella, my half sisters, are rather more ‘traditionally built’ than my svelte, lithe self.

Hedge-pigs!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky! Many garden hedges are threadbare and unkempt. Regular. Conventional. A barrier between your garden and your neighbour. Boring, dull, lifeless! Functional, unexceptional, middling and ‘hedge-like!

Bear Cuddles!

Fairy has always enjoyed being cuddled and enjoys many hours asleep nestling in her Daddy’s hands! Being blind and deaf has its compensations – there’s nothing to distract you. So once you are in a warm, safe and comfortable snuggle, it is easy to nod off. Before last Christmas, Fairy proclaimed Pasquale Bear as officially […]

Weigh up!

Fairy is weighed regularly to ensure she is maintaining a healthy weight and not loosing any of those precious grams. With any guinea pig weight loss is a cause for worry, but with Fairy being very small at 680g, around half the size of a standard piggy, I would be doubly concerned – especially knowing […]

Push Ups!

Although, like most guinea pigs, Fairy’s favourite pastime is eating she is also very aware of the importance of exercise. And what could be better than combining the two!

Handle With Care!

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like! It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she […]

It is with the utmost sadness I am writing to tell you our dear, sweet, beautiful and very magical Fairy passed away this morning. She had a little seizure yesterday morning and fell into a coma soon after. Being Fairy she wasn’t in a hurry to leave her wonderful life but she finally went peacefully […]

Leaving Comments!

We have had to add some new security software to block the several 100’s of spam user registrations we were receiving daily and subsequently this has caused problems for genuine people logging in to leave a comment. We are very sorry about this. We know how frustrating it can be when it becomes more trouble […]

A Bus Load Of Flowers!

Now then Pixie my old fruit. Kinda peace-able in these here parts of late. It’s been very quiet – too quiet some would say. Happen there’s a storm blowing in to town. Either that or a double decker bus. Between you, me and the salad bowl, I think there may be a very special delivery […]

Our Beautiful Bear

It is with the saddest heart I have to write the words we all dread. We have lost our dear, sweet, cuddly Bear. How could it be just a few days ago when I was spring cleaning the Piggery accompanied by a noisy rumbly thundering noise – it was Bear, zooming back and forth, popcorning […]

Fairy’s Love-Bug!

Fairy’s Love Letters!

We all know what today is. No, not Munchday or Chewsday. It’s Valentine’s Day!!!

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.

So instead of my usual beautifully written and wonderfully photographed story, we are happy to share some seasonal snaps starring […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

Santa Paws Grotto!

And It’s Night-Night From Me!

Famous Fairy!

You might be forgiven for thinking we’d all gone away for good this summer when actually we were all just very busy indeed.

Everything In The Garden’s Perfect!

We have a problem. In between snacking and snoozing, and snacking a bit more, all I keep hearing are mutterances about the garden. The gist of it is, the long, cold winter killed a load of plants off. Well, it isn’t a problem now! Mum! Look at all these nice new plants I’ve found for […]

Fairy Grows Grass – On An Industrial Scale!

That grass growing experiment we did recently went very well. The only problem being that there wasn’t quite enough to grow round, so to speak. Actually, there might well have been if Mariella had been put on a strict diet. I know, I was the only one who thought she should be on one! Anyway, […]

Weigh up!

Fairy is weighed regularly to ensure she is maintaining a healthy weight and not loosing any of those precious grams.

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like! It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she […]

Push Ups!

Although, like most guinea pigs, Fairy’s favourite pastime is eating she is also very aware of the importance of exercise. And what could be better than combining the two! Fairy’s little hay tin contains some chopped ‘special blend’ hay. Each ‘Push Up’ results in a small treat! The perfect combination! What a great game!

Spring Is In The Fur!

Like most guineas Fairy likes to feel the warm sun on her fur! Front AND back! It’s lovely! It is nice to sit out with your friends too. Even if you can’t go out, it is good to know the sun is shining! It warms your whiskers . . . . . . and makes […]

Our Beautiful Bear

Oh hello. Would you mind keeping the noise down a bit? I am trying to have my nap. I am worn to a furry frazzle. Why? You may well ask. I was up all last night meddling in a certain Minty and Monty Mouses affairs – it is their Wedding Anniversary tomorrow and knowing what […]

Everything In The Garden’s Perfect!

We have a problem. In between snacking and snoozing, and snacking a bit more, all I keep hearing are mutterances about the garden. The gist of it is, the long, cold winter killed a load of plants off. Well, it isn’t a problem now! Mum! Look at all these nice new plants I’ve found for […]

Fairy’s Gone Potty!

Help! HELP!! HEEEEEEELP! Let me out NOW – this minute! What’s all that noisy, squeaky fuss about, Marigold? There’s an awful lot of ‘language’ coming from somewhere!

A Fairy Interloper?

Hello, Fairy here! I have to admit to feeling somewhat muddled today. I keep thinking I am seeing things, it must be my age . . . or lack of food or something. Whatever it is, it is serious – come on, I’ll show you what . . . Here’s WHAT! Look! A small, round, […]

Fairy is well known the world over for her generosity and philanthropic good works. This year she has truly excelled herself!

Scary Fairy and the Ghostly Goings On!

Hello loyal friends and dedicated Fairy followers.

Fairy Gets A Helping Handy!

It’s a bit much, one can’t even enjoy a nice gentle stroll around the kitchen table searching for Mariella’s secret salad stash without bumping into something some careless person has left lying about. Who left this here then? And, more to the point, what on earth is it? What does it say on this here […]

Fairy’s Feeling Smugg!

I was just having a quiet nose around the house and came across this interesting object. Now what ever can it be? Now then, I might just have a little look into that interesting top bit.

Another Special Delivery for Fairy!

What do we have here then? Looks like a fan has sent me another present – all the way from Germany! It’s a goodly sized box. I wonder what it could be! Whatever it is, it’s sure to be exciting. I hope it’s salad. I have it on very good authority that German salad is […]

Now then my people – let’s see what the weather is going to be like today.

Right Ho my hearties – it’s time to pose for our annual official portrait picture photo thingy. Try to look stately and imposing Marigold. Just like me. Everyone say “Fairy”!

Fairy Takes Percy For A Spin!

Fairy And The Tumultuous Tower Of Cosy-Comfort Device!

We find our pals busily sitting around happily doing nothing – but all is not as it seems.  There is a simmering mood of discontent coming inexorably to the boil, emanating from the hairy occupant of the cheese chair. Hummph, Hummmph and thrice Hummmmph! What ails you sweet Fairy? You don’t appear to be your […]

Pigs Might Fly!

Recently, Fairy took her big sisters for a spin on her Magic Carrotty-Comfort-Cushion, which also doubles as a disguised spaceship! Fairy: C’mon everyone, all aboard!

Fairy, The Carroty-Comfort-Cushion and the Cheese-Chair Episode!

Maybe it has been sent here by a vastly superior intelligence from a galaxy far, far away. Either that or the local supermarket’s delivery service has got the order wrong again! […]

Time For Tea, Fairy!

Being a faithful Fairy follower, you will already know that I am well known for being exceptionally fond of my food.

Fairy Grows Grass – On An Industrial Scale!

That grass growing experiment we did recently went very well. The only problem being that there wasn’t quite enough to grow round, so to speak. Actually, there might well have been if Mariella had been put on a strict diet. I know, I was the only one who thought she should be on one! Anyway, […]

Three Pigs In A Home!

Hello my people. I am often asked by someone, what is the ideal number of piggy’s in a household?

Dear The Manager, The Grow-It-Yourself-Grass Company, It is Fairy here again. I recently had the privilege of sampling a tray of your delicious grass, and very good it was too.

Grow It Yourself!

It may not have escaped the more astute followers of my Blog that Marigold and Mariella, my half sisters, are rather more ‘traditionally built’ than my svelte, lithe self. This is due the the vast quantities of salad they consume. As well as their regular meals – breakfast, mid morning snacks, late morning snacks, lunch, […]

Everything In The Garden’s Sneezy!

This is especially for you, AliMouse. When Fairy was very small she soon found the comfiest places to snooze. One of those was in the protective arms of Pasquale, the bear. She had no idea how tiny she appeared – and how sweet! Here she is at about 10 weeks of age. You can imagine […]

Hedge-pigs!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky! Many garden hedges are threadbare and unkempt. Regular. Conventional. A barrier between your garden and your neighbour. Boring, dull, lifeless! Functional, unexceptional, middling and ‘hedge-like! What […]

Life On Earth, and beyond!

Fairy enjoys very deep, satisfying sleeps! Her ears can be seen twitching, her toes jigging and she makes tiny little squeak noises – I always hope she is having a nice dream and not a nightmare. Errr, where am I then? It feels as though I am on another planet. The ground is all hard […]
