The following day, it was scrambled eggs again!
It’s just as well I love eggs. But I did begin to wonder if the wishing well genie had heard my wish.
After breakfast, I helped tidy up the shop. Things were as quiet as ever.
I decided to have a word with the wishing well genie.
"I’m still waiting for my wish to come true," I whispered.
Then a thought came to me: if the genie was at the bottom of the well, he might not be able to hear me. Maybe I should talk a little louder. Or a lot louder.
I decided I might as well shout!
"Give me a sign, give me a sign," the wishing well echoed.
That’s it!" I thought.
I ran to give Uncle-and-Auntie Pat the message.
‘He could be right," said Auntie Pat.
"You need a new sign," I said. "So that motorists don’t just whizz by." Uncle Pat scratched42 his head. "I suppose it’s worth a try." he said at last.
So we got to work
We didn’t stop at making just one sign.
We made lots and lots and lots.
It took us all afternoon to put up the signs. They looked great.
No one could miss Wishing Well Farm now!
