|Don't view if about to eat...yikes.|
As I went to sneak a pound coin under her pillow, I felt a rustling and found a letter on a page of A4 which she had written to Sparkle the tooth fairy.
I love her innocence and will continue to embrace it. How could the tooth fairy just leave a pound coin after receiving a letter like this? I don't know if you can read it but the Princess is asking the tooth fairy questions and arranging to meet up. They had been in previous correspondence which is why we know the fairy is called Sparkle.
Sparkle decided to write back. This was at midnight.
She also left a tiny pot of Fairy Dust...
And last time she left this fairy bracelet...
This made the Princess's day. She burst in at 6am to share the good news with us. This was the downside. The girl normally has to be woken at 8am to rouse from her nest.
Everything has been lovingly stored in the fairy box.
And now we live in hope, waiting to see whether Sparkle will actually appear and meet the Princess. It is what she is dreaming of. I love this age. They think they are grown up, but they are still as sweet as ever.
Onto treasures from the cherry tree shop today. I used to wear these earrings when I was 15. I bought them from Tumi, a South American shop (remember it?) I can only find one at the moment but I wore them ALL the time as a teenager.
I then bought this pair from the same shop when I was about 18. For me they provoked memories of beaches, azure sea, the scent of suntan oil and seagulls calling out.
So imagine my delight to come across this in Oxfam for £1.99.
A happy, reunited jewellery family. I am absolutely thrilled. This is a real treasure from the cherry tree as far as I am concerned.
