The Small Girl’s birthday began with a note from her fairy friends, Buttercup and Apple Blossom. They have been visiting out house, via a special netherworld passageway, for several years now. They can be relied upon to exchange teeth for money although they have, on occasion, taken quite a few days to turn up. Once in a blue moon they leave a tiny note with a special message which, as you can well imagine, leaves us all in a state of high excitement.
Buttercup and Apple Blossom had shocking news. Their forest home has been over run by tourists and so, much to our delight, they have taken up residence in the base of our tree house. Can you believe how lucky we are?!
They’ve even told the Small Girl that, while they must hide away during the day, she is welcome to visit their garden.
Unfortunately, their (lollipop stick) picnic table and Adirondack chair and (Lego) tyre swing are all a little too little for us to use…
…and they have requested that we water the flowers from time to time.
As they just happened to have moved in on her birthday, they left a tiny surprise for the Small Girl…
…hidden from view and from the pouring rain.
Those might be the most valued enchanted story cubes on the planet.
We decided the fairy door deserved a few stickers as a Thank You to the fairies.
Small Girl asked for, ‘chocolate cake with Smarties and marshmallows on top.’
That is precisely what she got, with a fairy of course to guard against thieves.
