A while back I wrote a post about fairies I wish existed alongside the tooth fairy. Now I refer you to the ones I wish didn't....
1) The Old Age Fairy.
Sprinkles dust on you while you sleep causing you to wake up with a dodgy hip and an extra wrinkle or three.
2) The Biscuit Whisperer.
Sits on your shoulder and tells you to have another one.
3) The Baby Waker.
The kids are in bed, Fridays episode of QI is cued on the Iplayer, you plonk your bottom down next to your other half on the sofa, wine glass in hand ready for that first precious sip, and this bad fairy prods your baby in the ribs, just hard enough to wake them up. Bitch.
4) The Washing Basket Wisp.
Collects barely, if worn at all items and stuffs them onto dirty clothes mountain, ensuring that even if you never EVER slept and did nothing but wash clothes continually, you would still never see the bottom of the basket. Sometimes the items don't even belong to members of your family. (There is a possibility that she bears more than a passing resemblance to my teenage daughter)
5) The Money Thief.
However careful you are, however much you reign in that shopping urge, this fairy ensures that you still don't have quite enough. She is the one who suggests extra trips to teachers at school, and spends her weekends chewing small holes into Clarks footwear, and chipping silently away at your fillings while you sleep, until one falls out. She will do anything to ensure that just when you think ends might meet, something unexpected crops up and steals your secret chocolate fund money.
Oh gosh, there are an awful lot of mischievous be-winged nuisances aren't there?!? and I am certain that is but a few of them. Which malevolent imps are wreaking havoc in your house this week?
