It’s us..the Picsees! We’ve been away collecting some good old days but we’re back now! Well…..actually it’s not just us who’s back and also we’re not really back where we used to be. You see…once upon a time, about two months ago we got a special letter from our friends the Kabouters.
Have we told you about them before?
The Kabouters are wee folk (but not quite as wee as we are) that lives in magical place called the Nether Netherlands. They are sort of like gnomes, but in the same way a meerkat is sort of like a kittycat. They all wear big pointy hats under which they keep all sorts of useful things like string and spare cheese. Every lady kabouter has lovely long braided hair and all the kabouter men have big bushy beards. Most of their time is spent helping the wee animals of the woods. A very very long time ago they also helped people but then some bad people came and scared the Kabouters away. Most people thought they left this world but they are still here, they just live underground now. They still come out to look after the wee animals but only when there’s no human beans around…which brings us back to the letter…
You see, the Kabouters knew that not all human beans are bad. Actually they believe that most of them are good, and they’ve always wanted to help the good ones again…maybe even become their friends. But because they haven’t seen a single human bean for such a long time, they don’t know anything about them anymore…And that is why they wrote us the letter. The letter invited us to come and live with them in the Netherlands for a while so that we can tell them all about the lovely human beans we’ve met, and in turn, the will teach us all about their way of life so we can tell those lovely human beans all about them too…and those lovely human beans are of course you ~:D
So we’re back…but not back in Scotland. We packed up all our things (this includes the 2 human beans we live with) and moved all the way to the Netherlands. We now live in a lovely city called Amsterdam, and we can’t wait to tell you about our adventures and all our wonderful new friends…. de Kabouters ~:D
