A Right Royal Occasion!

Hello my darlings. I wonder what unalloyed joys today has in store for me?

Oh yes, I remember – I am off to The Palace for an audience with some major Royals. How jolly nice for them!

 

Good day, ma’am, your ladyship, Princess Anastasia Teacake. Nice place you have here.

When do we eat?

Oh and Crown Prince Roland Butter too! Delighted I’m sure.

Wow – now that’s what I call a cucumber sandwich – i’m going to like it here.

Umm, Anastasia my love, I rather thought we were supposed to be the big wigs round here. Shouldn’t Fairy be curtseying or bowing or at least saving something for us to eat?

Now see here Crown Prince Rowland Butter or whatever your name is, let’s get something straight shall we? Fairy is The Boss and when she is hungry, she eats. Is that clear? Good! Now isn’t it time to introduce me to The Minor Royals? They might want to give me a lovely present or two!

Prince Macca Roon and Princess Victoria Sponge! How sweeeeeeet! That really takes the cake. Sounds like they were named by Marie Antoinette!

I’m reminded of the excellent advice about having your cake and eating some salad – or something equally perplexing but vaguely food related. Time for a smackerel!

Hummph – as you all know, I’m not one to complain, but if this is supposed to be tea, I might just start!

Oh well, might as well clear the plates – waste not, want . . . a bit more!

Well, that was very, err, dainty.

Oh, you are expecting a happy event your Princesship? Humm – could be another snack perhaps?

A special delivery! This must be it – Yum.

Oh goodness me – it was ‘THAT’ sort of happy event!

More mouths to feed, oh dear.

They are adorable, I suppose.

You invited me here for a special reason, your Princeship? Do tell?

You want me to be the ‘Fairy Godmummy’ to Princlet Rolly Polly and Princesslet Sue Flae?

Oh, what a lovely surprise. I am delighted to accept.

 

I was going to suggest we celebrate the happy event with a jolly good slap-up feed. But, it looks like I’m going to need to call up some reinforcements.

Where are Bear and Pixie when I need them?

I knew that!

Fairy always insists that she is accompanied by her special emergency reserve salad supply, when out and about onmanoeuvres, Pixie.

Looks like we were just in time then, Bear! I can’t spot a single spare lettuce.

Right everybody – you all look pretty while I tidy away this messy salad.

Perfect end to a perfect right royal day – burp – pardon!

Fairy – And The Noble Craft Of The Deckchair

Good morning my people. I had a dream last night that Summer is finally on it’s way. Time to prepare myself for the beach! I am all signed-up for a very special course Mr Bear is running on how to do something complicated with a folding chair. Sounds a bit barmy to me – but if you don’t go to these events . . .

 

Right then. What’s all this Deckchair malarkey all about then?

 

Oh I see – it’s very complicated and potentially hazardous to health and takes a very special piggy to master – just the job then!

 

All the basics are contained in this slim little pamphlet.

Lets see. Err it would appear to be a little more ‘challenging’ than I first suspected!

 

Oooooo Mr-r Be-e-e-a-r. I only suggested that although it was very simple and straight forward for me to comprehend and everything, it was clearly going to be way beyond Daddy. He is now insisting that I ‘stand aside and let the professionals show us how it’s done’.

This may take some time!

 

Excuse me Mr Bear. Does it usually take this long? He’s been juggling with those planks of wood things for ages.

 

I’m sure it looked exactly like that half an hour ago.

 

Calm down Daddy – I was only offering you a helping paw.

 

In my expert opinion, I think putting your fingers there might result in ‘complications’.

 

Don’t say a word Mr Bear – leave all the ‘I told you so’s’ to me.

Now where are those bandages?

 

Luckily I recently attended Mr Bear’s ‘What to do when someone interferes and traps their silly fingers in a folding chair’ Course, last week!

 

Right then – enough messing about. It’s time for Fairy to take charge.

 

Ahhh – I see your problem Squire. What cowboy did this job for you? It’s going to cost a bit to put right. Three sugars please.

 

And if I am not mistaken, with a little twist of the wrist . . .

 

Perfect!

 

Gosh, this is extra comfy – well done me!

 

Oh yes – another certificate for my wall.

 

MR BEAR –  Err Fairy – excuse me, I know these Deckchairs make extra cosy resting places, but it really is time to go home now!

Happy Second Birthday Fairy!

You guessed!!!!!
For those of you that didn’t (humph!), here’s another little clue. . . .

‘F’ is for . . . . . tra la-laaaaa!

Yes – it’s my BIRTHDAY!
Time for my official portrait. That’s me on the right – and I am not so little now thank you very much. I am TWO you know!

Oh wow! All my special online friends have remembered!

I have been having a lovely day.
I went on a grand tour all round the garden with my Daddy.

He passed on all your Birthday kishes!

And this afternoon I went for a special ride on Big Mavis.

Then we had my Birthday tea – indoors.
It was quite windy and I was worried my Birthday salad would all blow away!

Marigold and Mariella invited themselves and, err, helped.

We had a very quick game of ‘Pass The Salad’!

Look! I told you – Marigold DOES have legs!

Pull, Mariella!

umph – looks like we’ve almost run out.
That didn’t last very long did it?

That was a bit greedy, Marigold! Fancy eating everything in sight . . . .what about the rest of us? Grumph!

Oh well. Now you two sit all nice and quiet and look photogenic while I check out all my Birthday presents.

Nice wrapping paper. Very tasty.

Oh heck, Marigold, is that what I think it is?

WOW! My very own extra special cucumber!

It’s from all my Mousey friends – I’ll keep it safe until Marigold has gone to bed.

Look here, Fairy, you’ve got another one to unwrap. You get two presents when you are two.

Thank you, Mummy and Daddy! A perfect little Fairy-Fur-Brush!

Looks like the pair of you could do with a heavy duty one. What a pair of scruffs.

Oh-ho! Look!! Candles – Mum . . . . can you light them for me, please?

Big breath in, and, Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuufff! Good, I can make a Birthday wish . . . I wish you could all be here to share my special day.

I’ve had a super Birthday, thank you all for everything. I am a very lucky little girl.
I love being all grown-up and everything.
Can’t wait to be three now!

Flowery-Fairy!

Snow, snow and more snow! I expect you thought that is what you would find here today. Well, you were wrong! Nasty cold wet stuff that sticks to my whiskers – brrrr! So instead I am bringing you a little bit of summer. Sit down on a nice comfy chair, put your paws up and chill(!) while I show you a few of my favourite garden flowers.

My love of flowers can be traced back to the Big Royal Mouse Wedding Of The Year where I, among all my other important and complicated duties, was co-opted to do the wedding flowers. Remember Minty’s spectacular bouquet? A pretty little posy of Sweet Williams with some other little whatsits thrown in for good measure. Fairy-sized flowers, delicate, sweet and mini – just like little ol’ ME. A triumph!

Look! They are jolly snazzy.

If you need me to do your wedding flowers I am sure it could be arranged.

If you are going to a sophisticated wedding, you can always find a suitable hat hidden amongst the flower petals. This jolly posh hat was just the job for the famous Mouse Wedding of the Year. An occasion made all the more enjoyable by my meticulous planning and superior organisation skills. Oh and a particularly good Cheese-cake!
That reminds me, I must invite Minty and Monty round for tea, it’s ages since we got together!

Have you ever tried lounging around in the flower bed? Daisies are particularly comfy and quite handy to hide among, their being white and everything!

No time for loafing today though. Let’s be taking a look over yonder . . .

. . . err . . . I am in here. HERE! Can you see me ok?

Pink! My favourite colour! Mummy says it has something to do with my ears, I think . . . not sure what though.

Now then . . . where was I? Oh yes, flowers.

The very best kind of flower is of course, the edible non petal flower – more commonly known in horticultural circles as ‘grass’. Not only is it comfy to loll about in, it also makes a tasty and nutritious snack. Yum!
