My fairy adventures

Dick Whittington and his cat

Posted by Bluebell Woods on

Hurrah, pantomime season is upon us. If you are not from Britain, you may not know what the Great British tradition of pantomime is about and to be honest friends, I would struggle to explain this quirky form of entertainment if you asked me about it. But these comic shows are usually based on fairy stories and folktales and that is something fairies know very well. One of the famous pantomimes is 'Dick Whittington and his cat' and it is a story close to my heart as my own relative Bow Bells, was the very fairy who met Dick Whittington...

The story of Jack Frost

Posted by Bluebell Woods on

It's getting much colder now, here in my little town in Wales. There are many signs that Winter is on its way, which reminds me of a story I was once told.

The two elves made lovely wooden toys and sold them in the town....

The untold story of Bobbity Boo (part 2/3)

Posted by Bluebell Woods on

First read part one of this legendary tale. Part 2 ‘My what?’ The teenage girl had been told all her life that fairies weren’t real and although talking mice had become normal, this was quite absurd. ‘You’re my godmother?’ She asked. ‘But where have you been until now? All these years, I needed you.’ ‘My dear child, I was always around. I’ve watched you grow into the sweet young lady you are. But listen, we can’t argue about this now, you will be late for the ball.’ ‘The ball?’ Cinderalla scoffed. ‘I can hardly go now. Just look at me....
