Mojo and Pink Elephants . . .

I was sat at my desk last night sipping a lovely glass of Rosé wine and wondering where my little Mojo had got to.  She had gone on Friday to party with everyone over at PPF for their first Birthday and then with my niece in Australia for her Birthday. I was getting a little worried as I hadn't seen hide nor hair of her all weekend. Actually I was a little annoyed, I thought maybe she was having so much fun that she wouldn't be home anytime soon.

Plouf plouf capouw!!! there she was bright as a button in Princess combat gear...with a tiny Pink Elephant, not any old Pink Elephant a Royal Pink Elephant. Princess Rose, who only last week had been captured by the evil Witch Carmine. Carmine was going to boil Princess Rose to make a  paste that is supposed to cure Witch acne... nasty red carbunculs on the end of Witchy noses... it doesn't work but do you think she would listen. Carmine is an old hag that listens to no one...
Anyway my little Mojo had heard a whisper on the wind that Witchy Carmine was holding Princess Rose in the Enchanted Forest just off the M27 so she and a couple of her forest friends, went deep into the wood to rescue Princess Rose the tiny Pink Elephant.  While Carmine was busy conjuring up some teatime treats and putting the pot on the fire to boil up poor Princess Rose, Mrs Lapin, Master Fawn and my little Mojo snuck in and rescued Princess Rose right from under Carmine's nose.

So now my darling little Mojo is back and I have a tiny Pink Elephant flying round my office...    "what does one do with tiny Royal Pink Elephants?"

Hope your week is filled with lots of fun and nonsense...xxx

This is a Wonderful story Catherine. You've got fantastic words and now you just need to draw it ( a 15 to 20 page pic book) :)

Spring break here coupled with a flue epidemic :)
And on Sunday a total of 18 lambs have been born, since the birthing started, only 5 more sheep to go.
