Little Gems - Lizzie Dripping and the Little Angel
Lizzie is busy looking after Toby (the lamb). They are both outside enjoying the quiet day when Aunt Blodwen appears. Don't ask me why but you just know this woman is trouble before she has even opened her mouth. Lizzie knows she is trouble and Aunt Blodwen is hear to tell everyone that her nephew, Jonathon, is coming to stay and that he is the perfect ten year old boy. Lizzie and her mother Patty know better of course as Aunt Blodwen does not have any children. Lizzie is told that Jonathon will be round later but Lizzie has other ideas. She wants to go off down to the pond for a nice relaxing read and perhaps an afternoon nap on a little boat. She knows that she really must go and see the witch who lives in the church yard, however she thinks she has time to do both.
Whilst walking down the lane she meets Jonathon who does not appear to be anything like Aunt Blodwen as he is looking for trees to climb. Lizzie tells him she is busy and leaves him to his own devices. When Lizzie arrives at the lake side waters she thinks she sees the witches reflection in the water but no one is near her. She then lies down in the boat and is soon fast asleep. The mischievous witch (perhaps annoyed that Lizzie did not come and see her), uses her magic to remove the oars and casts the boat adrift. Lizzie soon wakes up to find she is in the middle of the lake with no way of getting to the bank. She sees Jonathon and asks for help. Jonathon throws her some rope and she is able to pull herself to the bank. As she is getting out though, the witch casts another spell and Lizzie falls into the water getting covered in muddy water. Jonathon finds this very funny and the two of them walk home to Lizzie's house. There she meets Gramma who takes her inside annoyed that her mother Patty is upstairs asleep. Gramma helps Lizzie get sorted before anyone finds out about the incident. Gramma reminds Lizzie that it is a Friday and she normally washes her hair on a Friday. Hence her mother will not notice her hair being wet.
