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.

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You might have noticed that my usual stack of cuddle cup beds arrangement has been replaced by a Super De-lux, Made to Measure, Five (at least), Poster Bed especially created for little me by Jenny at her highly appropriately named Piggy Palace.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.

Nanny Fairy To The Rescue!

I didn’t know the new babies would be such hard work, Monty. I am just about at my tails end trying to cope with everything. I haven’t slept in nights! They don’t give me a moment’s peace – look at them! It’s bedtime now and they simply won’t settle down and go to sleep!

Don’t worry, Minty my sweetheart! I’ve just called Fairy and she is coming round later, as soon as she has finished her snacks. I am sure with her supreme diplomatic and organisational skills she will soon have everyone under control and life will be all hunky-dory again. You’ll see. If not, I have kept the receipt . . . Shh – she’s here!

Babies being naughty

Now then you three! Sit up straight and pay attention. It’s time we had a little chat.

Baby mouse bedtime (1)

No Marmaduke you can’t be excused – you should have ‘been’ at break time.

I want you to show your new mummy and daddy how good you all can be.

Baby mouse bedtime (25)

Come on now! It’s bed time. Settle down there. None of this shilly-shallying.

NO – I am not going to read you another story Mabel!

Baby mouse bedtime (4)

Well thank you, Petunia. I know you love me SO MUCH and a big hug is always lovely . . .

Baby mouse bedtime (7)

. . . oh! A very big hug it is then! These Cuddle Cup beds are not very big, are they?

Baby mouse bedtime (9)

4 hours later . . . that’s better – all that huggling has tired them out. I think everyone has nodded off . . . zzzzzzzzzzzz

Baby mouse bedtime (10)

The next night.

I brought one of my Baby Bowls around. I thought it would make a suitable bed!

In you get Petunia, there’s just enough room for a little’un!

Baby mouse bedtime (18)

What’s that, Marmaduke, you’re HUNGRY? You can’t be! It isn’t long since you had your supper.

No, I won’t get off until you promise to stop being naughty and go to sleep!

Baby mouse bedtime (16)

There – that worked! Good NIGHT . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Baby mouse bedtime (12)

The third night.

This old packing case from my office (the kitchen) makes a jolly good bed too. But you will soon either outgrow it or wear it out. Particularly if you don’t stop all that wriggling about.

Baby mouse bedtime (21)

Hmmm . . . I’ve got my work cut out here. However, I think I have solved the underlying problem – we need some new, proper beds – just like Monty and Minty’s. The babies want to be treated as part of the family.

Mummy! Daddy! Get your credit cards warmed up, we’re going shopping!

Baby mouse bedtime (23)

The Next Night

There we are – Bob’s your uncle!

The kiddy-winks feel all grown-up and appreciated and have settled down a treat.

All tucked up in the correct beds (3)

Mummy – does this mean I should have a brand new, super duper, luxury four poster bed with silk sheets and integral fridge (to help stave off night starvation) – just like yours? No!?

Hummph – one rule for mice another for Fairy! It’s so unfair!

All tucked up in the correct beds (6)

Oh well, at least it looks like my work here is done. All’s well that ends well!

Good night, Minty – good night Fairy! Good night, Monty . . . good night Fairy! Good night, Mabel, night night Auntie Fairy . . . good . . . night, Marm . . . zzzzz

We’re On The Move!

The newly weds have been spending time relaxing in their brand new rented apartment in London. It is Japanese style!
Meanwhile Peregrine and Pandora are busy decorating Minty and Monty’s new home, with a little help from Fairy of course.

Come along Peregrine, you will have to brush-up your technique – you’ve missed a bit!

It’s looking very smart. Maybe Minty and Monty can move in at the weekend.

This Oriental style penthouse apartment in Town is all well and good . . . but I feel like I am in a cage when I come to visit!

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (4)

Mind you, I must admit I quite like this super hat thingy!

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (22)

And the pair of you look very fetching in yours!

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (2)

And those shoes are the height of fashion, Minty!

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (13)

Muuum! Look! Can I get a pair of these please? I could use my Birthday money!

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (12)

They make me look taller, and everything!!! I promise I won’t fall off them.

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (10)

Oh! Is it time for a snack? Good! I was beginning to feel rather peckish! Can we have sushi salad without the fish please?

Minty and Monty go Japanese! (14)

A couple of days later . . .

We’re on the move! Minty and Monty’s new home is ready now. We’ve loaded the cart and we are on the way! I hope they haven’t forgotten anything . . . beds, blankets, cuddle cups, food bowl, salad . . . SALAD?!

House move (1)

Where’s the salad? It’s no good, we’ll have to go back . . .

House move (3)

. . . what’s that Marigold? You’ve already stocked up the fridge? Well, why didn’t you say?! Phew! That’s one less thing to worry about. Let’s get this lot unloaded then and we can make a start on lunch.

House move (6)

There! That is much better! Nom, nom . . . lovely salad!

Err, Snow Bear, get off the bed!

They're in! (3)

I didn’t mean, ‘Help yourself to MY salad’!

They're in! (7)

More tea, Minty?

They're in! (6)

Actually, this bed is quite comfy and seems to be just my size.

They're in! (16)

And Snow Bear fits nicely on the rug!

They're in! (17)

Maybe I could stay over and keep you and Monty company, Minty!

They're in! (13)

Hehe! I was only joking! I like my own house far too much to live in a mouse-house!

More salad anyone?!

They're in! (4)b

Pillow Fights And All That!!

The guest beds are ready!

Fairy has two very special friends coming to stay for a sleepover tonight. Can you guess who they might be?

She has accepted the task of acting as their chaperone. What a responsibility!

After a tasty supper and a romp round the garden to try and tire out her little guests – it is time to settle them down for a good nights sleep. Some hope!

Hello there! I have two very special guests staying over tonight . . . . I bet you can guess who they are!

Minty and Monty sleepover (63)

Good evening Minty and Monty. It is very nice of you to accept my invitation to ‘sleepover’, and what a good idea to bring your own box-beds.

Minty and Monty sleepover (14)

And hello, Sebastian Bear! I am so pleased to see you!

Minty and Monty sleepover (18)

What’s that, Minty? Oh, you would like a bedtime story? Hum, it looks like you have an excellent choice of books there – Fairy’s Tales. I wrote that a while back. Do remind me to sign your copy for you.

Minty and Monty sleepover (10)

Oh well, here we go . . . .A Tale Of Three Piggies. Once upon a time there were three pigs . . .

Minty and Monty sleepover (32)b

We ARE being good, Mum! We will go to sleep soon.

Minty and Monty sleepover (37)b

Now, where did I put my pyjamas?

Minty and Monty sleepover (48)

C’mon now, time to go to bed and get some shut eye . . . . I’ll just do my fur and whiskers -
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the Fairy-est of them all?

Minty and Monty sleepover (23)

Give me that pillow Monty! I don’t . . .

Minty and Monty sleepover (42)b

. . . trust you! Ouch!!

Minty and Monty sleepover (45)b

Right! Candles out.
