Up, Up and Away!

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.

This is fun – Whooosh! Can you see me mummy? I think I’ve got the knack of this flying malarkey.

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!

Fairy Takes Percy For A Spin!

What ho! I may be able to fly a carrot through the wide blue skies and beyond – but who would have thought that a real life wooden pig might fly too?

Just give me two ticks while I get cleared for take off and locate the accelerator pedal thingy, and check the horn – pip-pip!

How high up is it, up there? Will I need my pigga-shute? It looks very high and very scary indeed.

Now then lets check the whether or not type conditions. There is a cross wind of 3-4 hay-knots Nor Nor West and visibility is, as usual, ‘challenging’.

Right, that’s all the highly technical stuff that you won’t understand, dealt with, time to fly.

I bet you thought I would be worried about flying . . . not me, Fairy the Fearless-flyer! (actually, I am a little more concerned about contracting a severe bout of the dreaded ‘splinters’)

Fairy Percy (5)

Hold on . . . I say . . . what the dickens . . . it is, isn’t it? That there – over yonder whatnot . . . well, I’ll be . . . get a move on Percy old chap and let’s zoom over there and investigate . . . neeeeeeoooouuuuuuuu . .. . weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee . . .

Fairy Percy (2)

Wooo hooo – this is so exciting! We’re travelling at the speed of white. Tee hee.

Fairy Percy (1)

View Halloo! Well done Percy Pig! You just carry on and hover up there a mo while I check out this rather stupendous Fairy sized super pumpkin type thingy!

The question I know you’re all dying to ask is – am I going to ‘The Ball’ or to a totally brilliant and spookily amazing, surprise ‘Halloween Party’, thrown in my honour by Marigold and Mariella?

That’s for me to know and you to find out – very soon!!!!
