Wed, 14 May 2008
Well that was it, the hustle and bustle of arranging all the class rooms began. The lighting was finished. The cave walls had been decorated and one of Uncle Cled's nephews from the lower sett came and painted  beautiful murals over the classroom walls, some of them on boards even, they looked so real.

(Would you like to see them? This one is outside, do you all like it?
Uncle Willowdown did it for us, arn't we lucky xxx Immy.)

this is one of the classroom walls

Everything seemed to be going really well, Great Aunt Izzy made sure that  Immy and Eddy were not overdoing things.
"I really can't think what we used to do all day before those two teenagers came here to live. Why even the youngest ones seem to be behaving themselves." She said to Mrs Clarissa Buck, "They just don't seem to get tired and yet I'm sure they talk half the night as well."
And so it was things kept being done; paths to clear, the few odd trees to be felled to make access easier for the weasels and stoats who were coming to get through. It had taken Eddy and Immy quite a while to persuade even one of them to attend the school but something happened the thursday before the school was to open on the Monday.
It was rather a cold day, there had been quiet a heavy fall of rain and all the paths were very slippey in parts. To the left of the old church yard that had long since become a ruin there was a stairway that was carved out between two pieces of rock by the Elves of Fingles Wood, many years earlier. The "Big people" called it the "Devil's Stairway" when they found it, which made the Elves laugh, however they let the name stay because it kept the little ones
from playing around them because they had become very unsafe at the bottom.
Eddy was busy helping Uncle Buck, William and Stephen to clear away some fallen rocks from the top of the rise above the old huntsman's cottage. Suddenly they heard a loud yelp, followed by a lot of screaming. It sounded as if someone had got themselves caught in a trap. Within minutes the girls had bounded away through the undergrowth and there lying near the bottom of the Devil's Stairway was Wilhemina Walls, the four year old daughter of the Wall Weasels, nothing was to be seen of her two brothers.
"Immy  you say with her and I'll go down to the bottom and see if I can find a way up to her." And without furthermore ado, Eddy was climbing down the side of the rock face and inching her way towards the stairs. The Elves were right the bottom three or four steps had become dislodged in thesmall gap and as Eddy placed her foot on the closest one to her, the one beneath it slipped. Wilhemina screamed, Immy let out a yell and eddy grabbed hold of a piece of ivy. It held fast to the ground and Eddy managed to regain her footing and pull herself onto the first safe step.
By this time the brocks had arrived with some rope and a ladder, but it was no use there was no where for the ladder to stand safe.
"Uncle Buck, if you give me the rope I can throw it to Immy she can then take it ot hte top where the boys can tie it off and hold it steady." She smiled at her sister, "You ok Imm,"" Immy nodded her head she looked almost as worried as the little Wilhemina, "I have a good idea Immy, why don't you teach Wilhemina here a little song, one that we will be teaching in school." she winked at her sister. "I know just the one," Immy said smiling, be it a bit forced. "We shall sing Row, row, row your boat, do you know that one Wilhemina darling?"
Willy shook her little head and gripped onto the rope that Immy placed in her paws. "Right, then I will sing it to you. Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream, Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.
Come on it's your turn now and as we sing  the row, row, row bit we will both move up the rope, is that ok my darling," she whispered in the little ones ear. For the first time since they arrived at the steps the little one smiled and with Eddy behind her helping her up the stairs, Immy in front of her guiding her little paws over the rope, and the whole lot of them singing row, row your boat, they were up at the top in next to no time. They were safe,

Whoops look at the time, Diddily must go to bed now. See you all soon . xxx Diddily dee dot of Seligor's Castle
