Oh Come All Ye Faithful . . . Mices!

Oh come all ye faithful (followers)! Joy to the world (of mice) – Fairy is come amongst you!
It’s time for my pre-Christmas address to the Fairy type nation.

Just a minute! Who are YOU then? Mr Robin? Hum . . . birds don’t eat salad do they? No? Oh well, you can stay seeing as you’re here. Sit still though, no fluttering or chirruping type annoyances.
Now where was I? Oh yes . . . it has been another truly magical year, with lots of spiffing adventures and everything.

Errr, it might be my imagination and I apologise for the interruption but I can’t help noticing we do seem to have a somewhat larger, multitudinous even, Mouse family than I remember. Have Peregrine and . . . what’s her name again . . . oh yes, Pandora, been errr, visiting the Adopt-A-Mouse Agency???? I expect they are very busy at this time of year finding jolly good homes for all those unwanted gift-mousies. So well done you two!

You newbies look like the Three Wise Mice!
I’m your Auntie Fairy. And I am IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING particularly the fridge, so listen up and listen good – our job is to help spread peace, joy and goodwill to all living creatures. I know it’s a tough job – but we will do our best.

Right then, there isn’t much time so away you go and spread that good ol’ Fairy Magic – and don’t forget the salad.

Happy First Anniversary!

All clear left! Check the mirror – and we’re off!

Toot, TOOT! Watch out everyone, Fairy’s behind the wheel.
What a glorious day for a spiffing drive in the country.

No canoodling in the back. I’ve got my eye on you two!

Now then, before we go any further, I think you ought to know – I have organised a very special surprise for you.
As you may recall, it is exactly one year ago since the Big Day – your splendiferous wedding. A day not one of us will ever forget – especially me! I hear it is still discussed in hushed tones throughout the land.

Hold tight! We’re there! Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeech!
Oooops – bit heavy on the old brakes there!

SURPRISE! Happy First Anniversary!

Squeek, squeek (translate: Hello, Mariella. Hello Marigold. Wow – look Monty – all our friends and family are here, in Fairy’s marvelous marquee!)

Right lets get the catering arrangements under way. Come on Mariella and Marigold, give me a paw to get things ready will you please?

Now then – I left it all under that chair here.

Humph – maybe it was over here.

Er, excuse me. You don’t happen to have seen a whole lot of scrummy yum yums do you?

Unfortunately, the lack of tasty nibbles appears to be causing some ‘consternation and discontent’ amongst the guests.

MARIELLA!
There was no need for that – it’s not poor Minty’s fault you’re starving!!!

MARIGOLD!
Mr Bear had something in his eye – he was NOT making improper suggestions! Apologise to him this minute.
Oh, you WERE making improper suggestions Mr Bear!!!!!!

That’s better. Nice group photo time.

What do you mean, Marigold? You’re tired and hungry and want to go home this minute?

Squeek, squeek, squeeeeeeeeeeek! (Translate: It was an EVENTFUL party, Monty. Fairy is such a unique little organiser and always manages to produce something that will er, stay in the memory!)

Right, that’s enough of all that party type stuff. All aboard – just time to make one of my memorable speeches.
Thank you everyone for coming to my surprise Anniversary event and making it such a wonderful success! Bye, bye!

Broom, broom!! Hold very tight you two – we’re off!

That all went very well didn’t it? And I don’t think anyone realised that I had eaten all the ‘catering’ earlier today!

High Tea!

Ho, Ho and thrice Ho! Fairy here, your internationally renowned spirit of Christmas. Well, just to further illustrate what a selfless little bundle of philanthropic joy I am, I’m throwing a Festive Tea Party for Minty and Monty and the Pesky Mousie Babes so they can all show their appreciation for me and all my good works.

1 (2)

Just need to hang a few of these festive looking baubles to make the scene look suitably decorous. Can’t help thinking I am Gilding the Piggy, but Hey Ho, it’s traditional at this time of year.

1 (3)

Mmmmm actually, this bauble stringy stuff is very tasty – nomm nomm. And perfect for a spot of personal dental hygiene – that’s flossing for the uninitiated. Auntie Lisa will approve!

1 (4)

Lets just double check the catering arrangements – woolly cakes and glass decorations for the micey guests and fresh salad leaves for me – perfect!

Hark! Do I hear the deafening pitter-patter of millions of thunderous tiny paws approaching? I’d better go and greet my guests. I’ll be back for that tasty lettuce in a moment.

1 (5)

Oh – err, hello Mr Bear. I wasn’t aware I had invited you as an official gate crasher. Hummph, **thinks** – better hide the Sherry!

We are having Tea at the top table today. Don’t worry about the climb, Mummy will give us lift up there.

2 (1)

Right everyone, lets have a group portrait of the grown-ups.

3 (13)

And now one with the whole lot of mouseys. Look! We are all wearing matching ears!

Everyone say SALAD!

3 (2)

Oh what joy it is to be such a popular Piggy.

Ready, steady . . . wait for it . . . let’s get noshing!

3 (3)

Oh hello Marmaduke what do you think you are doing in my “seconds” bowl?

3 (7)

MUMMMMMMEEEEEE – Marmaduke needs to, err, ‘GO’!

Hummph – You would have thought he would have thought to ‘go’ before he came! Or come before he went or . . . well, oh you know – GO!!!!

What was that Marmaduke? Oh it’s okay Mummy, he doesn’t need to ‘Go’ anymore.

3 (8)

Oh for goodness sake, Petunia – how many more times – Mice do not like Salad!!!!

3 (9)

Mummy – Mr Bear found the Sherry – this party is getting out of paw!

3 (10)

Oooops – **tremor** hold tight! What was that? Some sort of Earthquake thingy? Yes Minty, I’m sure the Earth did move for you too!

3 (17)

Mummy – everything just jiggled. Was that Daddy putting his foot down again?

3 (4)

Goodness us – **lurch** there it goes again. Hold tight everyone.

MUMMMMMMMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEE – I know I am famous for my savoir fare, but this is getting ridiculous! All this furry table top moving about malarkey is making me feel quite queasy.

3 (18)

What was that Mummy? Oh, I see – it appears we have an extra special Big Guest Star featuring in today’s story. Well, no one told me and I am supposed to be The Star after all. Wait ‘till my Agent hears about this!

3 (15)

Quick, over here everyone – apparently it’s time to go and meet our special guest – with the Big Personality.

Big Personality???!!! Just between you and me Monty – I think Mummy is starting to loose it!

5 (1)

Mummy – where is it then? This special guest of whom you speak so eloquently?

6 (3)

Whoooooooooooa – Crikey! Er, I think I might be a little bit bit scared at this point!

6 (4)

Actually – it turns out ‘Winnie’ is a really Big Softy and apart from the odd unexpected jiggle, she made the perfect location for our High Tea Party. And being as how Winnie is so lovely, she has agreed to share her tea with me.

6 (5)

Pity she has such a tiny appetite!

6 (5)b.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I hope you, your family and all your furry Piggy friends have had a lovely peaceful and loving Christmas holiday. I can’t wait to share more of my pics and stories with you in the New Year!

Winnie was adopted by Daddy for Mummy from Sarah. A Big Surprise for her on Christmas Morning!

Fairy Princess And The Pea!

As the nights draw in and Fairy’s thoughts turn to ensuring maximum night time comfort and cosiness, The Fairy Palace has taken delivery of a brand new sleep device, guaranteed to provide suitable softiness and snoozability.

Here we find our pint sized hero about to embark on its very first test drive – with a little “help” from the mousey babes.

Princess and the pea Mouses (1)

Squeak, squeak – goodness – this new bed is really soft and warm and cosy – we are sure Fairy is going to love it.

Princess and the pea Mouses (2)

Actually – she may love it a little too much and there won’t be any space left for us. Perhaps we had better add a finishing touch of our own! Now where did we put that peapod?

Shush, quiet everybody – judging from that steadily increasing munching noise – she’s on her way.

Princess and the pea Mouses (3)

Hello Fairy Fans everywhere. Fairy, your very own superstar piggy wiggy here. Not sure why you had to wait so long for my Grand Entrance – but all good things come to those who . . . oh, something profound and what-not. Right, on with today’s episode.

You might have noticed that my usual stack of cuddle cup beds arrangement has been replaced by a Super De-lux, Made to Measure, Five (at least), Poster Bed especially created for little me by Jenny at her highly appropriately named Piggy Palace. And jolly smart it looks too, if you don’t mind me saying. Even if you do mind me saying – it IS jolly posh – so there!

Princess and the pea Fairy (11)

Right Ho my little bed warmer type mousies – move over – here comes the Queen of the Fairies. Let the Piggy see the Pillow!

Princess and the pea Fairy (7)

Oh, ouch, ooch, aw, garooo, who on earth put a stonking great big rock in here? This mattress is so hard and lumpy – I will never be able to nod off.

Princess and the pea Fairy (18)c

There is nothing for it – I had better organise a thorough search.

Come on you lazy lumps – give me a paw or six with this mattress.

Princess and the pea Fairy (13)

Nothing there!

Oh how disappointing – we will never get to the bottom of the problem!

Princess and the pea Fairy (29)

What’s that Petunia – someone has “peed in the bed”?????

Oh, “Put a Pea in the bed”, thank goodness for that!

I knew that was what you meant – I was just making a jolly jest type thing.

Ha Ha, peed/pea – what a funny quip – gulp!

Princess and the pea Fairy (28)

Tish, tsk – naughty mousey type nuisances.

Fancy playing such a fiendish trick on me – you can jolly well stay down there on your Cheese Chair and watch while I have a lovely snooze.

Princess and the pea Fairy (33)

Zzzzzzzz, snuffle, yawn, what a “lovely snooze” I am having  **loudly**

Even better without lots of tails swishing about everywhere causing a draft.

Princess and the pea Fairy (16)

Oh, it’s no good – I can’t be mean to those little scritchers.

I’m just a great big lovable softie and anyway, it might get a bit chilly without them!

Princess and the pea Fairy (32)

Okay then, I am sure you have all learnt your lesson – back in everyone – lets try again.  And Marmaduke – watch what you are doing with that peapod!Princess and the pea Fairy (17)b

Can’t be too careful though – I’ll just check that the Integral Fridge has been stocked-up. Perfect – just the right amount  of nibbles! That will help stave off any night starvation issues.

Princess and the pea Fairy (18)

Hold it – can somebody plump the pillows up for me?

Princess and the pea Fairy (20)

Perfect! Now, where was I? Oh yes . . .

Princess and the pea Fairy (18)b

Night, night Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Princess and the pea Fairy (24)

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!
