Now then my people – let’s see what the weather is going to be like today. If it’s all little fluffy white clouds and gentle cooling breezes, I might initiate the inaugural flight of my brand new, top of the range, super splendiferous Fairycopter. And not a pesky baby mousey in sight!
Well, I can’t see any reason why not to. All this weather watching can be a real pain in the neck.
Time for the pre-flight checks:
- Sitting all cosy
- Nice and warm and snugly
- Lots of in-flight snacks and a few nibbles – just in case
- Still no pesky mouses –
It’s time for Fairy-on-manoeuvres! Let’s GO! Up, up and away! Roger, Wilko and out!
I know, I KNOW – keep the pointy end behind me.
Goodness me, you can see for miles and miles up here.
I’m holding my attitude now . . . and travelling at 350 Top-Knots per hour.
I must have gone a bit further than I thought – looks like the seaside up ahead!
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee – move aside Mr Seagull, Fairy is coming through – Whoooooooooooooooooooo!!
There’s Mummy down there with her camera thingy – must be time for my best grassy smile . . .
. . . MUMMMMMYYYYYYY! Are you watching me? Mummmmmmy – I’m up here!!!
What do you mean – it’s time for my bath????? No thank you – I haven’t quite finished putting the ‘copter through it’s paces.
Mind you, it’s a bit chilly, can someone turn that fan off, please?
I am just going to test the night flying capabilities. Are you watching me?
The Next Day.
Ooooooooooooops. How was I supposed to know it needed fuel? Can’t it make do with yummy grass and fresh salad, like little me? Lucky that tractor was on hand. I can’t see why they thought I needed an extra ‘toe off the beach’ though?! I’ve got just the right number thank you very much.
Ah good – home all safe and sound. Well one thing is for sure – I will be keeping my beautifully manicured little feet on terra firma-fleece now, at least until I’ve had my full Fairy breakfast!
