Masked hero

Summer has been a super busy time. The Sylvanians have been out and about on adventures, having lots of fun. 

Rumours have quickly spread about a masked hero rescuing Sylvanians from danger. In this case we can see the mysterious masked hero catching someone that had slipped and fallen off a large rock. Witnesses say that the superhero appears out of nowhere, saves victims and the runs/ flies away at great speed.

Who could the hero possibly be?

Blackpool bunnies

After a busy weekend I fell asleep and began to dream...

My dream: Rocket asked myself and Lucky if we wanted to go to Blackpool for the day. I magically shrank to a doll again and off we went on our adventure.

We ate fish and chips, chased each other on the beach and played on the arcade games.

We even got our fortune read by the great and mysterious "Zoltar".

It was a beautiful, sunny day! But something didn't feel quite right, things became blurry and I couldn't focus any more. 

I could hear a ringing sound- it was my alarm clock. I was beginning to wake up!

As I hurried around the house to get ready, I picked my shorts up off the floor. This is what fell out of my pocket: A Zoltar Fortune card, an arcade game prize and some loose change.

Sylvanian school opening

There has been a lot of excitement recently amount the Sylvanian children as today the new school was opening. I on the other hand had to pop to the supermarket to buy food. But when I was there I couldn't stop thinking about what the new Sylvanian school was going to be like. I kind of wished I was able to go...

Bang! Pop! Wazzalabanop!

I was magically transported back home with the supermarket trolly! 

Hazel was just leaving the house to go to school. She ran excitedly towards me and jumped into my trolly!

Hazel: "Are you coming to school with me?".

I was dazed and confused. Where was I? How? Why? Hazel was so big! I looked down at my hands! Somehow I had been transformed into a doll. Even as a doll I was still having a bad hair day!

Me: "I can't bend my knees!!! I can barely walk". I was in shock

Hazel: "Did you use wishing dust? Look you're in school uniform. Come on, let's go to school!".

There were so many unanswered questions but we didn't care because were going on a magical adventure together. We were both excited. There was just one hurdle I had to face first- the stairs!!!

Sabrina: "Yeah!"

Happy Easter

This is a common scene when I wake in the morning: A guardian sat either on me or on my pillow!

Me: "Yiasoo, why did you steal my pillow again?"

Yiasoo: "All the better to guard you from! Mmm, has your neck always been bent like that?"

Yiasoo: "Ok, hang on. As it's Easter I'll give you a gift!"

Me: "No, no pleease, honestly there's no need for another mouse, or rabbit or bird".

Yiasoo: "Too late!"

This is Yiasoo's magic performing face- LOL!

A good half hour later... - Poof!

Yiasoo: "Tada- Breakfast in bed. Happy Easter Madame!"

Me: "Wow. Thanks Yiasoo. This is fantastic! Happy Easter Yiasoo".

Yiasoo: "Happy Easter everyone" :D

Fuji San's Well and it's secrets

Rocket felt relieved and happy because he had seen:

A mask! What a perfect disguise for his super hero rescue missions.

Hazel peered into the well next. Secretly she was hoping to see herself winning The Great Sewing Bunny. Instead she saw:

A Prince! She gasped as she was in shock. Although she thought the Prince was charmingly handsome Hazel was very independant and had never dreamed of meeting somebody.

Coco was next and she was very frightened. She peered into Fuji San's Well. She heard Coconut singing 1,2,3 and when her image appeared she burst into tears! Coco saw:

Not one, not two but three baby bunnies! Suddenly the sickly feeling made perfect sense and she was not worried or scared any more. The combination of Misty's magical baby cakes and well let's say snuggling with Chip has resulted in Coco becoming pregnant with triplets-yeah!

Chip: "What is it dear, are you ok?"

Coco: "Everything is going to be just fine. Take a look inside the well".

Chip climbed up and looked inside. King Chip saw:

Death's sickle. He jumped back in fear. 

He looked at his wife who was wiping tears from her eyes. He knew she had been sick for a while, surely Death's sickle didn't mean.... Chip assumed that Coco had seen the same thing and was just putting on a brave face. He thought he should too. 

Nobody was ready to share their secret knowledge just yet. They headed home to ponder over their new found knowledge.

Catch up post 7 - Through the ancient portal

The Sylvanians fought their way through the overgrown weeds and brush to discover the entrance of the ancient portal. One by one they each stepped through.

They were magically transported to a beautiful area in Grinpa, Japan. The Carrot Family admired Mount Fuji, the lake and the gorgeous cherry blossoms that surrounded them.

Hazel: "This place is beautiful but I don't understand why the magic carpet brought us here?!"

Misty appeared! She had followed them through the portal.

Misty: "Welcome to Fuji San's Well. The magic carpet has been passed down through the Royal Carrot Family since ancient times. When in need your carpet will help, guide and protect you as it is under a very powerful spell. It's curious that it has brought all of you here to this sacred place".

 One by one the Carrot family began to ask questions.

Misty: "I really shouldn't be here and I'm sorry I can't answer all of your questions. If you did have a worry or question you could always talk to Fuji San's Well. It is a magical well with powers far beyond my own. He can look inside your soul and whisper secrets. Once Fuji San's Well has given you his wisdom you will know what to do". 

Misty disappeared!

Rocket quickly ran around Fuji San's Well and clambered up. He peered into Fuji San's Well. He focused at the bottom of the Well. Bfore he had even asked his question he saw something appear at the bottom of the well. 

Rocket gasped and then a cheeky grin spread across his face.

Come back soon to find out the secrets from Fuji San's Well.

Wishing you all a wonderful day, Sarah :D

Happy Valentine's day!

Pierre: "Happy Valentine's day Sabrina. Je t'adore".

Sabrina: "Oooh my, you brought me some catnip and it smells so nice! Merci Pierre. Why do you keep asking me to close the door. Is it a joke? I don't get it".

Sabrina was embarrassed and confused. Pierre smiled nervously. She still has no idea that Pierre has fallen in love with her and her French is still really, really bad. 
Will Pierre continue to show his affection towards Sabrina? Probably.

Will Sabrina ever realise that Pierre loves her? It's not looking promising.

The perfect gift for Valentine's day?!

We have just had a new cat flap installed. I probably should have hoovered but I had to snap a few shots of the Sylvanians as they left on a new adventure.

Me: "Where are you all going?"

Piere: "We are going to find the perfect flower for me to give to Sabrina for Valentines day".

Me: "That's sounds like fun- enjoy".

One by one the Sylvanians climbed up their little ladder and disappeared into the forest.

They found some beautiful flowers but Pierre didn't like any of them.

Jasmine: "How about this flower?"

Pierre: "No, sorry it has to be perfect- that way Sabrina will know how I feel about her".

They couldn't find a flower that Pierre liked and so they left empty handed. Pierre was feeling sad and everyone was tired. They came back here to ask for help when Pierre spotted something.

Pierre: "That's it- it's perfect. Sabrina will love it and then she'll know that I'm in love with her".

He jumped up onto the window sill and quickly climbed up one of my plants.

Pierre's friends were worried.

Buster: "They are not flowers, they are leaves".

Pierre didn't listen. He was so excited, he grabbed a leaf and climbed back down with it.

Chester: "Eeeww it's stinky- put it back".

Jasmine: "Your french exchange will end soon and you will have to go back to Paris. Are you sure you want to give Sabrina a stinky leaf before you leave?"

Pierre: "I think it smells gorgeous".

Pierre's friends were shocked.

Do you think Sabrina will like Pierre's Valentine's Day gift? 

Find out tomorrow!

Catch up post 6 - The sleeping giant

The magic carpet dropped the Sylvanians right in front of my gorgeous little guardian, Doughnut. She was fast asleep in front of an arch way with mysterious looking writing etched into it. 

Chip: "It looks like an ancient Sylvanian portal".

Hazel: "Why is Doughnut guarding it?"

Coco: "I'm not sure but we'll have to sneak around her somehow".

Me: "Doughnut, Doughnut would you like some fish sticks?"

Doughnut: "Whahnsddrefplhhaar?!"

The Sylvanians sneaked past the guardian. Flowers began to blossom on the portal, it was activating. Doughnut was still half asleep and didn't notice.

Doughnut: "You have got to be kitten me! You wake me up in the afternoon for a fish stick? I want 1000 fish sticks. Oh, we are so now even for me regularly meowing in your ear at 4am!"

Me: "Oh I don't know about that?!"

Doughnut: "And you're not to tell anybody else about the gift I gave you".

Me: "You mean the half eaten mouse that you left in my boot right before my interview?"

Doughnut: "It was a good luck gift- you were meant to eat it, not squish it with your foot!"

Me: "Eeeeugh- I mean er thanks?!"

Doughnut: "Meh".

The Sylvanians used the distraction to make their way through the portal. Little did they know the Magic Mayhems had arrived and were watching their every move.

The portal was really old and the portal entrance itself was covered with ivy. Rocket fought his way through and one by one the Carrot Family disappeared through the ancient portal. 

Next time - We'll see where the portal leads...

Yes I am a really bad cat mum and I did accidentally wake Doughnut up whilst taking these photos. Usually she snores through all kinds of noises and distractions. She did get lots of treats, several extra massages, cuddles and spent the afternoon on my lap afterwards as she is a much loved member of our family so don't feel too bad for her.

Catch up post 5 of several - The magic continues

It was a day like any other in the Carrot Castle. Rocket and Hazel were fighting over who got to watch their favourite TV show (this happens every week). 

Hazel: "You watched you silly space programme last week. It's my turn to watch The Sewing Bunny this week".

Rocket: "That's not fair fluff tail- your friends were talking so much I missed most of it!" 

Chip: "Stop that right now. You two should be ashamed of yourselves. You are the Prince and Princess of the Kingdom! Your mother isn't feeling well, and all you two can do is fight. Rocket- Go to your room, you can watch your TV show next week. Hazel you get to watch your TV show this week but the next time your friends are here you leave Rocket to watch his space thingy in peace!"

Hazel and Rocket: "Yes father- we're sorry".

Hazel was sat by herself watching her show when she noticed that the rug was moving. 

Hazel: "Agh, Mum, Dad, Rocket, aaaaagh help" she screamed!

Rocket, Chip and Coco came running to Hazel's rescue. 

Coco: "Oh my goodness- you're, you're..." she couldn't find the words.

Rocket: "It's a flying carpet!"

Rocket rolled underneath to check that it really was a magic carpet.

Coco: "Oh no- what do we do?! Magic is bad, we could be banished from our own kingdom!?"

Rocket thought about this for a second to himself as he had recently discovered that he is magickal himself. Was this magic carpet his fault?!

Everyone: "Magic Mayhem, Magic Mayhem, Magic Mayhem" they cried but nobody appeared. 

Chip: "The Magic Mayhems gave us this rug for a reason. They saved it from the fire remember. They must have known that it's a flying carpet".

Coco: "Everybody on- let's find out for ourselves".

They all jumped onto the flying carpet. It got higher and higher and then veered towards the window.

Find out where the magic carpet takes them next time :D
