They live in the woodland bit, right at the bottom, under the cherry tree, (actually, I am exaggerating, the woodland bit, is, in fact, just a few trees!).
How do you know this, you ask, we all know just how elusive fairies can be! Well when Eldest Bea was very little, she was playing, in her playhouse, right under the cherry tree, when she ran, full pelt up to me. She was very excited, and slightly out of breath, we do have a huge hill in our garden too, ( actually, it's a steep slope, but a huge hill when your not quite three!).
"Mummy! Mummy! I've seen them, fairies!" she declared. And there you have it, living proof, there ARE fairies at the bottom of the garden!
In case they get too cold, now Autumn is here, I've made them some little houses.....
This week Eldest Bea lost a tooth, that night she asked me for the Tooth Fairy Pillow, (she's nearly twelve), bless her I thought, still clinging onto her innocence, senior school hasn't changed her too much! I smiled as I passed it too her,
"It's so lovely you want this Sweetheart", I said.
"Yes", she replied, "I really need the cash, you get two pounds, you know, for a molar!"
Oh well! I still have Little Bea to play with!
So this week, I've made these little Tooth Fairy Houses, with a little pocket on the back, for a tooth, and of course, the cash!
Little Bea saw them when she got home from school and immediately got out her fairies!
I'm not sure what, or who I believe in, but I have been saying my prayers, for little April Jones, who was sadly snatched away from her parents this week, I know those in the UK will be thinking of her and her family too...please say a prayer for her, I pray she will be found soon, :(
