"It was the Green Umbrella's doing really, for if it had not suddenly turned inside out and flown away over the sea, Carrying Bunty, Mops and Queen Elizabeth the doll with it, they would never have found the Little Boos. That's quite certain!
The Brown Rabbit helped a little, for if it hadn't called "Stop!" just when it did, they might have flown on and on, and there is no knowing what might have happened. I do know they were all very relieved when - bump, bumpty-bump - they were on firm land once more.
After they picked themselves up they saw a little mouse hurrying along. "Oh, please!" cried Bunty politely, "are we going right? We have lost our way." "Yes, straight on" said the mouse hurrying away. What an unhelpful person thought Bunty. As Bunty and her friends were tired, they climbed on to a comfortable tree to rest, but hardly were they seated when a squeaky voice asked for their tickets. "What tickets?" cried Bunty. "Tickets for the Little Boos concert tonight," said the voice, "and if you haven't any, you must come along with me to the king."
Bunty meets a Boo-Boo
The stories about the Boo-Boos are adorable but there are many others to choose from and poems too;
Ready for the rain;
It was such a sunny day,
when I set out on my way,
and the sky was a clear, bright blue.
But when the sky turned black,
I's my brolly and a mac,
Or I'd surely have been soaked right through!
Please don't be sad! Oh, do cheer up!
And smile again, says Patch the pup.
You're making me feel dismal too.
It's time we both stopped being blue.
There's Timmy who's older and going to be tall,
and me in the middle, and baby who's small,
we share out our toys and we don't fight at all,
it's ever such fun when there's three!
But whenever we're planning a prank or a game,
whenever there's mischief they say I'm to blame,
whatever the trouble it's always the same,
the one in the middle is me!
This is Emily with her doll, Candy Mae and the very sad dragon.

Something else I've fallen in love with this week
Each has a cut-out on the back cover.
I'm itching to cut them out - but of course, I won't!
I was over at the Always Crave Cute Blog the other day where the lovely Diane was talking about clouds. Her “I spy in the sky a Puppy Dog up High” post reminded me of something I saw just a few days ago. The following pictures are as they came out of the camera other than a touch of clarity to bring out the details.
This is how the cloud looked when I first noticed it,
Then as it drifted away,
it began to turn over and ended up looking like this.
I like to think it was a visit from my Guardian Angel but what do you think?
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
May your Guardian Angel
Watch over you.
