Scary Fairy and the Ghostly Goings On!

Hello loyal friends and dedicated Fairy followers. As if life isn’t scary enough for a sensitive little piggy such as me, my mousey family mentioned that something called Halloween was happening and Halloween meant everything would be ghostly and witchy and scary and pumpkiny and . . . actually, I am not sure where pumpkins come into it. They are not at all scary – in fact they are rather tasty. Perhaps people should get their facts straight before concocting such nonsense. In actual fact I’ll be having extra scoop of that little munchkin-pumpkin later for after afters. Anyway, to get back to the subject in paw – Halloween sounds just the ticket – let the spookiness commence!

So, Monty, is that Minty hiding under that spooky sheet then? Huh, not exactly scary is she? I am not even scarred a tiny bit. Errr, it is Minty, isn’t it??!

But hold your pumpkins . . . what’s that Halloween type Witchy contraption lurking over there?

Halloween Fairy (29)

Looks tailor-made for a tiny, petite elegantly furry Fairy-sized piggy. No good for big bottomed Mariella or furry-bloomers Marigold either. Move over a bit Monty and mind you don’t go poking your pointy nose where it isn’t required.

I am sure this comfy snuggle hut Witchy hat must be just for little ol’ me. I expect it has my name on it somewhere.

You could be forgiven for being lulled into a false sense of security inside here. Talking of which, I think I have visitors – Eeeek! Look! Scary ghosties! MUMMMMMMMMY!!!!!!

Halloween Fairy (1)

Eeeeek, Eeeeeeeek and Eeeeeeeeeeeeek again – those spooky ghosties have ghastly mouse type ghoulish feet poking out everywhere!!!!!

Just a spooky minute – they all have suspiciously familiar mousey type tootsies. What on carpet is going on?

Halloween Fairy (6)

Oh I see – on Halloween you dress-up as exceptionally unconvincing ghosties and people give you treaty type nibbles?! LOTS of treaty types of nibbles – to go away??!!! Wow – I could get used to these singularly secular celebrations.

Well, if you mousies are all going to dress up and try to be really scary, I may as well join you and take charge – although I don’t really see WHY I need a ghosty sheet, I am already very ghostly with my own beautifully white fur coat – whhhhhooooooooooooooo!

Pick yourself up, Mabel dear. Oh! You fainted with fright! Well get UP, this isn’t the time for lolling around. There are serious treat collecting type activities to undertake.

Halloween Fairy (16)

Right all you talented ghostly mousie apprentices – grab your ghostly costumes. I want a good clean scarefest with lots of wooooo’s and waaaaaaaaaaaaah’s and those sorts of things. Let’s scare everyone silly and make sure they give me, ooops, us double helpings of treats!

Halloween Fairy (43)

Very convincing . . . love the disembodied ear motifs! Good work.

Halloween Fairy (39)

I just need a few moments to get into character. What do you mean, “Fairy would make a good Goblin”? I heard that Monty?

Halloween Fairy (33)

We are PRETEND ghosts, aren’t we? Just double checking. I knew that.

Right – lets get treat collecting – errr I mean scaring!

Halloween Fairy (51)

Whoooooo . . . . and whoooooooooooooooooo some more . . . .

Halloween Fairy (37)

MUM . . . . DAAAD! ANYONE! Even Marigold and Mariella . . . . HEEEEELP!

There are genuine, real ghosts everywhere. Get lots of those tasty treats that I like a lot, to make them go away!

Whoooooooooooo . . .  quick – hurry up with those treats. Lettuce and things, especially things. They should help reduce the scarinessability. Don’t be frightened, now, bring ‘em on and be extra quick about it, please.

Halloween Fairy (48)

I bet you were all really frightened! Don’t worry – I was only pretending to be scary. I am still the ever popular furry bundle of cuteness you all know and love. But if I didn’t get my treats I was fully prepared to UNLEASH HELL – or even my TEETH.

Halloween Fairy (15)b

If Mummy and Daddy hadn’t piled my special pumpkin pie-dish with sufficient yumminess – I was going to get Mariella to sing! Now THAT would have been scary.

Looks like the greedy mouses have eaten far too many of their treats already!

Halloween treats (4)

You know, some people really think there ARE real ghosts out there – me? I don’t believe a word of it . . .

Halloween treats (7)

. . . but sometimes, if I squint my eyes and peer sideways, I think I CAN see ghosty guineas . . . one thing is for sure, they are NOT getting MY treats! The very idea!

Halloween treats (8)

What a spectacularly successful Halloween we had! All that scareyfying and treat nibbling has made me hungry!

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 – pip-pip!

Fairy Percy (3)

How high up is it, up there? Will I need my pigga-shute? It looks very high and very scary indeed.

Now then lets check the whether or not type conditions. There is a cross wind of 3-4 hay-knots Nor Nor West and visibility is, as usual, ‘challenging’.

Right, that’s all the highly technical stuff that you won’t understand, dealt with, time to fly.

I bet you thought I would be worried about flying . . . not me, Fairy the Fearless-flyer! (actually, I am a little more concerned about contracting a severe bout of the dreaded ‘splinters’)

Fairy Percy (5)

Hold on . . . I say . . . what the dickens . . . it is, isn’t it? That there – over yonder whatnot . . . well, I’ll be . . . get a move on Percy old chap and let’s zoom over there and investigate . . . neeeeeeoooouuuuuuuu . .. . weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee . . .

Fairy Percy (2)

Wooo hooo – this is so exciting! We’re travelling at the speed of white. Tee hee.

Fairy Percy (1)

View Halloo! Well done Percy Pig! You just carry on and hover up there a mo while I check out this rather stupendous Fairy sized super pumpkin type thingy!

Fairy and the pumpkin (1)

The question I know you’re all dying to ask is – am I going to ‘The Ball’ or to a totally brilliant and spookily amazing, surprise ‘Halloween Party’, thrown in my honour by Marigold and Mariella?

Fairy and the pumpkin (4)

That’s for me to know and you to find out – very soon!!!!

It’s Cold Enough For Snow!

Although May 1st was beautifully warm and sunny, today it is decidedly chilly here in our part of the UK. Fairy is safely snuggled up in her favourite Cuddle Cup enjoying a relaxing afternoon nap in the warm kitchen.

I have just returned from a brisk walk down the lane for ‘grass collecting’ purposes – it is far too cold for Guinea Pigs to be grazing on the lawn! In fact it feels cold enough for snow!

Fairy’s experience of the snow a few months ago was from the handy strategic positioning of a bowl full of fresh, clean white snow on the kitchen table!

Look! We’ve been busy building a snowman!

Mr Bear, there seems to be something missing . . .

. . . Muuum! Can we have a hat for the snowman, please?

Fairy and Mr Bear build their snowman (11)

There! We all look very smart now!

Fairy and Mr Bear build their snowman (2)

Haha! Take THAT, Mr Bear!

Out for a walk 090110 (35)

Ow!! You got me!

C’mon! Will it go any faster?!

All this playing has tired me out . . . . . zzzzz

Spring Is In The Fur!

Like most guineas Fairy likes to feel the warm sun on her fur!

Front AND back!

Even if you can’t go out, it is good to know the sun is shining!

Summer Pignic!

In September Fairy had some friends over to join her for an pignic.

Here she is with her friend Ginny enjoying some salad snacks.

Ginny is 6 years old and is just about the cuddliest piggy I have ever cuddled!

And with Baby-Maybe. She lives with Ginny.

She was one of the beautiful guinea pigs we rescued along with Fairy’s mum.
