Fairy’s New Bed!

Fairy . . . oh, Fairy! Wakey, wakey!

*blows gently on a Fairy-flap*

Oh crumbs! What does she want now . . . . fuff and fum!

I was just having a nice nap in my brand new, snuggly, buggly, cosy, dozy bed.
Oh hello! What! What do you want now . . .

Look here! Do you like my present? It’s from Fred_and_co you know. I like this flowery pattern.

It’s the first bed I have encountered with an integral sheep-like-fur pillow.
It makes a perfect chin rest . . . .

And look – it can also be put to good use as a hat!


What’s that? Speak up . . . oh! It would seem my gift is for ALL of us. Well, I will let Marigld and Mariella know . . . later . . . . . . tomorrow.

I know . . . I am just about to . . .

. . . . say THANK YOU, Auntie Fred! I love my . .. oops, OUR new bed and I love YOU!

Now then, if you don’t mind, go amuse yourselves for a while. I need my nap.
Good night!

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??!

Halloween Fairy (25)

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.

Halloween Fairy (31)

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

. . . earlier today in the Thatched Cottage Garden . . .

What’s that orange thing over there, Petunia?

I don’t know, Marmaduke. 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!

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (1)

Well, whatever it is, and where ever it has come from, it’s very big and very orange!

Here comes Fairy – she will be sure to know. She knows everything. I know she knows everything because she told me she does.

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (2)

Now then you young mousy type mice. What’s happening?

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (3)

There has been a sudden outbreak of strange, unexplained giant cuddle cup type things? Ooooh, sounds interesting.

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (4)

Now then, where might these unexpected dollops of comfort be hiding themselves exactly?

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (5)

I’m sitting on one?!

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (7)

Yes, of course. I knew that.

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (6)

Well let me see? This one is giant, and orange, very comfy and has an artistic green bit at one end.

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (8)

It looks to me as if yours is triangular, and yellow, very comfy with an artistic ‘nibble’ taken out of one side.

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (9)

Now let me examine all the evidence. Err . . . no idea!

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (10)

Oh, just a minute, did you say you spotted the Postman staggering up the path with a huge parcel that had been sent all the way from America?

Fairy's carrot and mouse cheese-chair (15)

Oh of course, silly me – they are fabulous ‘designer’ chairs, made especially for us by Jens Custom Crafts! Yours is the all new patented Cheese-Chair, and mine is the Carroty-Comfort-Cushion.

Thanks Jen, they have been awarded my special ‘Approved by Fairy’ accolade.

Mine’s A Sweetcorn Leaf!

I know what you are thinking – how could Fairy possibly leave all that spare lovely bright shiny sweet corn leaf treasure behind?

Well – she didn’t! Just after the last photo was taken . . .

Mummy – can you come quickly? Oh, and bring lots of carrier bags with you please!

Out for a ride (35)

A few hours later, back home all safe and sound . . . . .

Settle down now, and I’ll read you a bedtime story.

Once upon a time there were three little mice . . . and a lovely Piggy Auntie called Fairy . . .

Bedtime story (1)

Good  that did the trick – they have all drifted off to the land of nod.

Bedtime story (5)b

It was such a jolly good thing Mummy brought all the Sweet Corn Leaves home from the famous Sweetcorn Leaf Mine. I like to have a little snack just before retiring, and just in case I wake-up during the night, and just in case I might wake-up again during the night, and . . .

Bedtime story (3)

And there’s even some left for breakfast! Woo hoo!

Goodness me – yesterday was the best day ever! It was a champion day!

Time for . . . nom . . . nom . . . sleeps zzzzzzzzzzzzZZZ

Nanny Fairy To The Rescue!

I didn’t know the new babies would be such hard work, Monty. I am just about at my tails end trying to cope with everything. I haven’t slept in nights! They don’t give me a moment’s peace – look at them! It’s bedtime now and they simply won’t settle down and go to sleep!

Don’t worry, Minty my sweetheart! I’ve just called Fairy and she is coming round later, as soon as she has finished her snacks. I am sure with her supreme diplomatic and organisational skills she will soon have everyone under control and life will be all hunky-dory again. You’ll see. If not, I have kept the receipt . . . Shh – she’s here!

Babies being naughty

Now then you three! Sit up straight and pay attention. It’s time we had a little chat.

Baby mouse bedtime (1)

No Marmaduke you can’t be excused – you should have ‘been’ at break time.

I want you to show your new mummy and daddy how good you all can be.

Baby mouse bedtime (25)

Come on now! It’s bed time. Settle down there. None of this shilly-shallying.

NO – I am not going to read you another story Mabel!

Baby mouse bedtime (4)

Well thank you, Petunia. I know you love me SO MUCH and a big hug is always lovely . . .

Baby mouse bedtime (7)

. . . oh! A very big hug it is then! These Cuddle Cup beds are not very big, are they?

Baby mouse bedtime (9)

4 hours later . . . that’s better – all that huggling has tired them out. I think everyone has nodded off . . . zzzzzzzzzzzz

Baby mouse bedtime (10)

The next night.

I brought one of my Baby Bowls around. I thought it would make a suitable bed!

In you get Petunia, there’s just enough room for a little’un!

Baby mouse bedtime (18)

What’s that, Marmaduke, you’re HUNGRY? You can’t be! It isn’t long since you had your supper.

No, I won’t get off until you promise to stop being naughty and go to sleep!

Baby mouse bedtime (16)

There – that worked! Good NIGHT . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Baby mouse bedtime (12)

The third night.

This old packing case from my office (the kitchen) makes a jolly good bed too. But you will soon either outgrow it or wear it out. Particularly if you don’t stop all that wriggling about.

Baby mouse bedtime (21)

Hmmm . . . I’ve got my work cut out here. However, I think I have solved the underlying problem – we need some new, proper beds – just like Monty and Minty’s. The babies want to be treated as part of the family.

Mummy! Daddy! Get your credit cards warmed up, we’re going shopping!

Baby mouse bedtime (23)

The Next Night

There we are – Bob’s your uncle!

The kiddy-winks feel all grown-up and appreciated and have settled down a treat.

All tucked up in the correct beds (3)

Mummy – does this mean I should have a brand new, super duper, luxury four poster bed with silk sheets and integral fridge (to help stave off night starvation) – just like yours? No!?

Hummph – one rule for mice another for Fairy! It’s so unfair!

All tucked up in the correct beds (6)

Oh well, at least it looks like my work here is done. All’s well that ends well!

Good night, Minty – good night Fairy! Good night, Monty . . . good night Fairy! Good night, Mabel, night night Auntie Fairy . . . good . . . night, Marm . . . zzzzz

All tucked up in the correct beds (8)ch
