I've Been Adventuring!!!

I know I've been absent from my blog for a while but I've got a good excuse...

The other day I was sitting in my sewing room thinking it would be nice to have a holiday when from the distance came the sound of tinkling chimes. All of a sudden I found myself surrounded by wonderful patterned pink, purple and green hills. "What Magical Lands are these!?!" I exclaimed. There was only one way to find out so off I skipped on an exciting adventure.

I travelled through the patterned purple and blue hills, over the fields and into a forest of Magic Trees that stretched as far as the eyes could see.
The leaves rustled and bustled in gentle breezes. I saw many a wonderful thing.


Soon enough my busy adventuring days started to chill and soon the forest became a splendid Snowy Woods. with snowy paths and silent falling snowy flakes.

Brrrr, I'm not a huge fan of the cold so I found some big Tree Pods to snuggle underneath and was soon cosy as a warm apple pie, without ice cream of course.

The seasons turned and Spring arrived and the air filled with Ginko blossoms. I celebrated by doing a little song and dance.

"Ginko Blossoms over here,
Ginko Blossoms over there,
There's Ginko Blossoms everywhere
La la lovely Ginko Blossoms, Yeahhh!! "

After all that singing and dancing I needed a nice place to rest my weary legs. I looked around and found just the spot! A Magic Spot indeed!

I sat down and closed my eyes... in my dreams I heard a strangely familiar tinkly chime sound and found myself back in my sewing room!! I pinched myself quite a few times and wondered if it had just been a dream. But I looked around and found I'd brought some mementos back with me...




I'll have more to show of my adventures with Magical Lands soon, so stay tuned...

Cheerio,

What a wonderful post! I've done student support at schools and this would make a great mini book to engage a shy or challenged child with it's colourful 'pictures' and everyday speech. Another avenue for your creating?

RobynK said...

Lol, I was so enchanted with the magic story I forgot to comment on how lovely the equally enchanting 'windmills' are!!
