Pixie Finds Her Voice!

Quick! The camera is here! You do it, Pixie, I’m too small!

It seems I have been voted spokes-piggy so, if we may have a drum roll, please . .

It gives me great pleasure . . .

. . . to announce the arrival of a brand new family member!

Freshly delivered yesterday may I introduce Lady Florence Plimsole!

A grand name for a rather grand piggy, bestowed upon her furry little head by our friend and celebrated writer, Auntie Alden.

This is the bit where we eat our lunch, Lady Flo – tuck in!

Go steady, you don’t need to eat it all! (I can see I’m going to have my paws full with this one!)

I’m sure you will agree her new title suits her most suitably – I think Fairy would approve being such a Royal piggy herself.

Did I do it ok, Pansy . . . PANSY!

It’s the little ‘uns you have to watch, Flo!

We’d better get all this grass tidied away before Pansy finds it – get munching!

If you need a reminder of Fairy’s Royal and Titled connections you can go here, here or here!

New Additions!

Life goes on . . . and it is time for an update.

Welcome to the new arrivals! Meet Poppy and Posy – a pair of proper pirate-pigs, into mischief and causing mayhem at every turn!

And another new guinea pig joined us recently, Big Bear, in memory of our own beautiful Bear.

She is an amazing and very beautiful chainsaw carved sculpture, created for us by the very talented Mick Burns. He also created Big Mavis and all the other ‘Bigs’ a few years ago.

She is a very BIG Bear indeed! We may need to acquire a new fridge to store the vast quantities of salad and snacks needed to sustain her!

As summer approaches, Pixie and Pansy have been enjoying a few minutes in the garden.

And the whole herd went for a ride in Fairy’s wheelbarrow. It was remarkable they all managed to face the same way for their photo – if only for 2 seconds!

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 on it’s way. I overheard Daddy on the telephone the other day arranging for some very romantic Flowers for our Mummy. Don’t know what he did this time!

Yep – and here it is now – bang on time! Looks to have lots of passengers on it too. Must be another coach party of tourists.

Err . . . excuse me, sorry to be a bother and everything, but is this the marvellous land of magic we have heard wondiferous tales of – where the famous Fairy lives?

Oh Pansy, I think we must be at the right stop, it all looks super duper lovely.

It does too Daisy. I wonder if the catering type salad bar establishment is open for business.

Well, maybe we are a little earlier than expected. It would appear that lunch isn’t quite ready yet.

Are you sure Pansy? I’ll just clamber up onto the top deck to get a better view.

Oh Daisy, quick, come and look at this? It’s just like in all those wonderful stories. I can see mountains of salad, hay and grass, cosy cuddly beds and, oooo err . . . FAIRY? Oh WOW!

That will be little ol’ moi – and I get to be bus driver because apparently that is the pivotal starring role that really moves the plot along and everything!

C’mon you little ‘uns! All aboard, nothing to see here, time you were going. Tickets please, two halves is it? Ding ding and other highly significant and profound Bus type utterances!

Err excuse me Fairy your eminence, me and Pansy, we err, were wondering . . . seeing as we don’t have a forever home, whether it might be . . . if we could . . . maybe you could possibly see your way . . . perhaps we quite thought we might be allowed to errr, STAY HERE WITH YOU AND PIXIE. If you don’t mind too much please, thank you! What’s for tea?

DAAAAAAAAAAADDDY! When I accidentally overheard you mentioning ‘Daisy and Pansy’, I thought you meant the smelly, petal-y flower kind, not the smelly, ravenous furry sort!

What’s that? We will have to have our salad and pellet ration increased dramatically because there are two more mouths to feed???? Brilliant!!!! Welcome aboard you two – everyone off the bus please, ding, ding, hold very tight please, ding, ding again because I like saying it, this bus terminates here – you two have arrived at your destination – Fairyland.
