Arabella goes in search of Toby.

"Toby this letter came for you" Says Arabella finally finding Toby after searching all over the house.

"Oo !" Says Toby putting it on the table " I wonder who it can be from?"

"Never mind your letter " cries Arabella " Look at this sweater dress that mum's made me put on! "
" it's very nice, I like the colours " Says  Toby
" It is beautifully made by Auntie Gill.. BUT.. " continues Arabella " I am a dress person and it comes with a...HAT!" she says the word as if it's an insult...

" I do not DO hats! " she declares firmly " especially knitted ones. My hair is very delicate "
" you'd better not speak like that about hats when Hatties around " states Toby
" I have nothing against hats per se But they are not for me and either are sweaters!"
" Well just change then " says Toby getting fed up with the conversation and more interested in opening his letter "
 " Oh " says " Arabella "won't mum mind?"
" Nop, one of the others who loves sweater dresses will snap it up "
 Relieved Arabella asks  " Are you going to open that or not ?"

"Well !"
" I am just wondering what it can be!"
" Stop wondering and open it" says Arabella.
Mossy ,on the chair at the back, shivers feeling worried...

In side is a card with a message....

Toby reaches back into the envelope and finds something, he starts to draw it out.......

On to the table drops a perfectly formed replica of a... WALNUT WHIP!!!

Arabella watches stunned as Toby starts to run from the table Yelling!
"TOBY! " she shouts to be heard over the racket he's making " STOP THAT THIS MINUTE!"

Toby stops and turns back to Arabella, who is now holding the tiny walnut whip and admiring the workmanship.
" Look you silly boy, it's just a little tiny thing. It cannot hurt you!"
Taking a big breath Toby relaxes and looks at what Arry is holding , he starts to go red for being so silly.
" Here " says Arry " you hold it"

Toby holds the walnut whip and feels so much better! He finally thinks he might just stop dreaming that they are chasing him round the house!
" Well whoever that Lonely is , she's a wicked child for sending this to frighten you!" says Arabella sternly " I shall send her a very stern letter about playing such nasty pranks on people!"

" No! No! " says Toby quickly " you don't understand  It must have been the Ice Queen who suggested it!"
Arabella looks confused " Toby you cannot have it with Ice cream it's a toy!"
" Not Ice Cream ICE QUEEN " yells toby
" Do not yell  at ME "  Arabella yells back. " What ICE QUEEN!!!"
" Come on I'll show you "

He takes her to mum's computer because dad is working on his and starts to search for Lonely .
" Stop!" says Arabella as they come across the photo of Steve's No nose family. " What a beautiful family " say Arabella " Those boys are so handsome , that girl should move out the way "
" She looks just like you Arry! " says Toby " but with more hair !"

Arabella turns to Toby slowly " I beg your pardon what did you just say?" her voice is very soft and luckily for once Toby can hear the underling menace....
" Oh hum I said " gasps Toby franticly searching for some way to save himself.." I said ..arh  she looks like she does not care ! "
Arabella stares at him for a moment longer hers eyes steely then she smile " well where is this ice queen?"

Toby rushes to find Lonely thankful to have managed to save himself.

They watch Lonely look for her Bear, her one friend, who's been thrown into the pond by her nasty brother

 They read of the trials she faces in T.H.A.T house and the Ice Queen who rules with a icy hand!

and they see little Lonely sitting at the table all alone deciding to share her walnut whips with others!
Arabella gently touches the screen desperate to hug the sweet little child ...

" Oh Toby " cries Arabella " that poor child..so alone..." she weeps on Toby's shoulder.
Toby wishes she'd stop she's making his eyes water......

Arabella dries her eyes and turns and with a look of pure steel says
" Some one had better give that child her bear back or else!"
then going in search of mum because she needs a cuddle and the phone number for child line!


  1. Didn't at first get the link of the title until 'the penny dropped' later on.
    Very amusing post with so much to take in and digest.

    Tell Arrabella that I love that sweater dress on her. Really suits her colouring and the boots are just the perfect with it. I'm sure that the hat won't damage her hair if just worn occasionally.

    Great section on the Walnut Whips and using the computer to bring up illustrations of the topics being discussed.
    Sad though to see little Lonely still on her own. Trying NOT to click onto Ronnie's blog these days as there's only so much a woman can take! I hope Dee that you have included Lonely getting her little bear back again in your storyline idea for Ronnie....as left to Ronnie that's never going to happen.

    Great way that Toby was able to cover up his comment on the quantity of hair on our various Sashas. Personally I like LESS than MORE on my dolls especially when hats and hairstyles are involved.

    Sasha love and thanks for this huge Sasha Fix, from Kendal.

    1. I too love the colour on her but I knew when she arrived she had a preference for girly things like lovely pretty dresses and with her hair I worry about pulling sweaters on , so she'll be wearing dresses and cardies in future.
      Lonely's gift as cured Toby of his fear of walnut whips which now means no ones walnut whips are safe!!
      I think Ronnie will never give Lonely her Teddy back! she's enjoying herself toomuch Lol
      sasha love Dee

  2. Dee this post must have taken you absolutely ages! Another wonderful post and glad the WW made to Toby safely and you weren't tempted to keep it for yourself!
    Thank you so much for all your time and effort...and no Lonely isn't getting her teddy back!!

    1. Ha I knew it! Steve said he thought you might take note and return her bear but I knew!
      Well I can keep the pressure on...ice ice queeny... :)

  3. Oh dear, this is a wonderful effort to thaw frozen hearts....but it looks like it hasn't worked. Nice try Dee! We'll just have to keep up the pressure! LOL
    Big hugs Sharon in Spain xx

    1. Oh she's not as frozen as she likes to make out..Lol
      But I am sure Fritz and his dog will have a small battle on their hands and paws once they 'arrive'....
