Hello it’s me Charlie
This week’s been very busy, there’s been lots to do on the Isle of Oug. When we arrived The Viking and I decided to try very hard to catch some fish and Sapphire disappeared into the
We’d nearly reached the pond when Sapphire shouted “Hey you guys” – she always calls us ‘guys’ when she wants us to do something – “I need some help”.
My goodness there was lots to do. Now, although she’s only 5, Sapphire is a very very good organiser. First she told me to pick the runner beans. It was fun when I found the great big curly one. As fast as I picked Sapphire carefully cut them up ready for cooking. She told The Viking to harvest the two enormous marrows. He managed to lift them, he’s only 3 but he’s very strong. And then Sapphire said that Trisseen and J’ree needed carrots for supper. The Viking and I had good fun pulling them up. Some were a really funny shape.
Then The Viking went to the greenhouse to pick tomatoes. He likes that the best. Sapphire was still cutting up beans so I went to look at the plum tree. There were HUNDREDS of purple plums but they were still hard and not ripe enough to pick.
“I think it’s time for a treat” said Trisseen, “come into the kitchen.” “Please can we have some of the nice smelly bread” said The Viking. “How did you know there was nice bread?” Trisseen asked. “ I see’d it when I comed in to eat my tomatoes” he said. We all laughed and then we ate the delicious bread fresh from the oven.
Well, I will have to tell you what happened at the Fairy Castle next week because it was AMAZING! But I can tell you that Trisseen’s grandchildren, Hannah and Isabella who are twins and 4 and a quarter, saw lots of fairies even though they couldn’t click their fingers! And they sang Wheeeee as they went down the Wheeee Hill. Loads more to tell you next week. Charlie x
