Hello everyone...welcome  to Delightful Thursday and part 2 of the story of the lonely Castle..

Last week..we left the little Castle asleep and feeling sad...dreaming of having someone come to live with him..


On waking the next morning the little castle heard a rustling noise in the forest...

                          " SOMEONE WAS COMING"

Out from the forest appeared a beautiful Princess...

She was so pretty and strong willed, and as she stood with her hands on her hips she declared.." I will make this Castle my own" ..

In all her finery she planted flower seeds and watered all the trees daily...the birds started to arrive and sat in the branches and sang all day long...

Fruit began to appear on the trees, lovely rosy red apples and the little Castle was so happy as he watched Princess Delightful working every day.

On some days though, the Princess would daydream about her handsome Prince, and hoped he may join her to share all the beauty around the Castle as she missed him.

She sighed and kept on working [and kept wishing]..

Tune in next Delightful Thursday for the conclusion of the lonely Castle.

Will the Princess find her love?...Will the Castle always be happy? Will they live happliy ever after?..I DONT KNOW EITHER..we will have to wait and see..


I hope I'm having a great time away on holiday..I know for sure I wont be missing the homecare you next week..

Thanks so much for stopping by..
