Hi my name is Lucy and this is my blog – Witch-watch. This is where I write about where I live, in a tiny town called Ballyyahoo in Ireland. You’ve probably never heard of it because it is a secret place. If this is the first time you’ve visited this blog then you won’t know that we might just have a witch on the loose in Ballyyahoo!
And you also won’t know that I have been trying to discover if a woman called Biddy is a witch! So, if you start reading from this page you might miss something and if don’t want to miss anything, you should go back to the beginning and start reading from the very first page of Witch-watch.
THE STORY SO FAR…
I was looking after the Raggy Rabbit for Miss Parrot while she was away. All was going well, but the last time I went to see him and bring him his dinner, he had disappeared! I don’t know where he went but I am wondering if one of these three things happened:
- Did a fox come and take him?
- Did he run away to join his country cousins?
- Or, did he end up in a witch’s stew?
When I grow up I’m going to be a detective. Not an ordinary, boring detective like the ones in those daft shows on television. All they do is run round like eejits, asking daft questions with big smirky smiles on their faces.
They always go after the wrong people and they never seem to notice that the old woman with the curly hair, who arranges the lilies in the church, is really a raving psycho-killer who is murdering half the town, cutting them into small pieces and burying them under her flowerbeds.
While all this is going on, the detective is sitting in his car eating chips and watching some man with a stubbly chin mowing the lawn.
A GOOD WITCH
No, I’m not going to be one of those eejity detectives, I am going to be a magic detective. All I need is some magic. That’s why I am still hoping that Biddy is a witch. Not a bad witch. A good witch. A very good witch.
I need a good witch, who likes to help people. I used to want spells to do my homework for me but now I need a serious spell one that will help me find the Raggy Rabbit before Miss Parrot comes home.
STRANGE LITTLE POTIONS
What I really don’t need is an evil witch, who wants to scare the living daylights out of people, give them millions of years of bad luck, turning the milk sour, making strange little potions with slugs, nettles, lizards tails and nice people’s pet rabbits!
So far I haven’t got any magic and I haven’t got any proof – of anything! So I have to do what a good detective would do. I have to carry out a careful investigation.
Unfortunately for me, I don’t have a great big white board and a team of junior detectives to help me like they do on television.
So, I can’t put a list of suspects on the board and point to it with a long cane, and I can’t throw things at the junior detectives when they act the maggot, look like eejits or come in late!
But what I have got is a notebook and a pen, so I am making a list of suspects and I am going to investigate them very, very, very carefully – just like a real detective – magic or not.
