What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put a-sounder.

Wendy and Murray are celebrating their 12th wedding anniversary.  The family have gone for meal at the Flying PigGrace is happily occupied – busily sculpting every scrap of paper she can find and continues to fold the pink napkin that Fiona places in her lap.

By the time the food arrived it was too late!  The table had been turned into a pigsty.  And Grace Merryweather had landed herself a part-time job!

Amazing Grace

by 3arn0wl

It was some time, and a fair distance, before Wendy & Murray Merryweather realised.

What with the mayhem and confusion associated with transporting a young family and their friends, it’s hardly surprising that they hadn’t noticed that their eldest daughter, Grace (8), wasn’t with them.

Hastily turning their people-carrier around, they traced their steps back from the Poppleton ring road to Gawthrop Farm, Little Sniffy. They went to the llama field – her favourite. No, she wasn’t there. They looked around the sheep enclosure, but no, she wasn’t there either. Nor was she picking fruit or spinning wool. So, once more into the Maize Maze they went.

It was probably closer to half an hour before they found her, sitting crossed-legged, right at the centre, a seraphic smile on her face, having conquered the labyrinthine vortex.

But find her they did, and their prodigal daughter was handsomely compensated with chocolate ice cream.

The Sun had found the Earth once more, And woke the Sleeping Beauty with a kiss

Murray Merryweather was up early this morning! 😉

He and Wendy were out before dawn to see the sun rise over the stone circle, standing sentinel at the arrival of Spring, and marking the rebirth of the Earth.

Then home for eggs, turning the calendar over, a stint in the garden and a flurry of Spring cleaning.

What the Dickens?

To mark the 200th, Shelly Wordsworth invited local author, Wendy Merryweather, to do two performances at the library on Tuesday.

And in a most entertaining distraction, the celebrity performed readings of her work – largely from memory. As she read aloud she assumed the various roles, imitating the accents and the physical appearance of her characters.

Her audiences were enraptured, and noted that the two-hour recital passed in the blink of an eye.

“I’ve rarely ‘ad an evenin’ of such fun,” said Tom Bell.

And everyone agreed!

Giving Thanks

by 3arn0wl

Everyone, it seems, has something to be thankful for.

Harry Driver thought it’d been a good season with the girls – there were fewer bull calves than usual for J. W. Constable.

Justin Case was grateful that he didn’t have Mr. King for P.E. today – he hated cross-country running in the cold.

And Murray Merryweather was pleased,  because Wendy had baked a Pumpkin Pie!  😉

As the Earth tilts, the Sun crosses the Equator once again from the northern to the southern hemisphere:  the first day of Autumn.

Wendy Merryweather marked Mabon by going down to the standing stones and witnessed the Sunrise; giving thanks for the fruits of the Earth.  She resolved to collect up the fallen apples in her garden and leave them by the gate for passers-by.

As on any other Friday morning, Lilly Watts went up to the Hallowed Prostitute, to lay flowers on her husband’s grave.  She noticed that the trees were turning, and remembered that the family were coming over for lunch tomorrow.  Of course she didn’t realise that she was enacting Higan.

Moh had noticed an elderly gentleman struggling with his shopping as he walked through the park.  He went over to give him a hand:  a small act of kindness for the festival of Mehregan.

And Eddie Lowe spent the day trying to get one of his chickens’ eggs to stand on its end. 😉
