As you know I believe in Elves, Pixies, Fairies and all manner of supposedly ‘mythical’ creatures.
I know that they are out there and they are helping us with all manner of everyday tasks. Before you call the men in white coats (and btw a little late I’m already inside!) here are the jobs often assigned to fairy folk.
The Toaster Fairy; As everyone knows toasters are magical things. You put in bread , out pops toast, fantastic. What most people don’t realise is that all this toasty goodness is down to the hard work of the Toaster Fairy. You pop your toast in and she takes out her tiny blowtorch (and yes of course she wears tiny little safety goggles). Perfectly scorching the bread until she has perfection she then sprinkles her magic dust and pop out pops your toast.
The Locking Pixie; My husband first drew my attention to this little guy (thanks sweetheart). He works in central locking. Basically when you point and press your key fob he dashes round the inner rim of the car locking the doors as he goes. Sometimes as your locking pixie grows old you may find the locking isn’t as efficient as it might have once been but bare with him it’s hard to get round all those locks on a zimmer frame.
Airplane Fairies; Obviously airplanes are magical creations. Huge metal objects which fly in the air without even the flapping of wings, flabbergasting. It was on a recent trip to Cyprus that I realised the truth of the magic. A team of fairies underneath the plane are flapping their little wings like crazy. Obviously the bigger the plane the more fairies the carrier has to employ, and believe me airplane fairies eat a huge amount of nectar !
These are just a small selection of the places you will find these creatures. If you have discovered one in your day to day life please leave a comment and let me know (and perhaps don’t mention it to anyone else especially not a phychiatrist) Happy pixie hunting!
This made me chuckle! These are fairys from the good side – there is a dark side too – those imps that leave out lego in dark places for me to stand on barefooted, the buggers that hide single socks and give me the reputation amongst husbands past and present of being a sock loser.
I hope you had a good Christmas and that you are able to be home for good soon x
I definatly have a few of the pixies from the dark side in my house but they are easily bribed with jammy dodgers!
We have a valentine fairy she comes bearing myriad heart themed items but is very shy so she knocks on the door and runs off leaving her parcel behind
of course we have the tooth fairy she left silver charms to fill up a charm bracelet for Amy which I thought was inspired no idea what she wil do for Jake though.
If we travel during halloween and the kids can’t trick or treat the halloween goblin does a simular thing as the valentine gal.
I confess I had no idea about these other faires and will be sure to thank them from now on 🙂
Aw I want a valentine pixie , she sounds great, possibly related to santas elves ?
you do make me smile!!! i think there are sock pixies who steal one sock as they can make an entire outfit from it! i am always having socks taken by them – naughty little things they are too!
Me too but they do look so cute in there little sock couture !
I never knew there were so many fairies in the world – I’ll have to get looking! 🙂
I’m sure a naughty ‘sock-stealing’ fairy also visits my house, as I always manage to have odd socks instead of pairs, heehee!
Oh yes there are fairies employed in literally everything. Keep your eyes open 🙂
