When Algy woke the next morning, he found that the Scotch mist had descended again, and it was even darker and gloomier than before, and exceedingly damp.

The forecasters were saying that a big storm was on its way, but for the moment it was calm, although very dreich and dismal. Algy decided that in conditions such as these, more hugs were needed, so he took his little blue monster out to see the daffodils emerging from the ground, and gave it a great big fluffy hug 🙂

Have you hugged your monster today? Algy sends lots of extra fluffy hugs to all those who may be in need of extra hugs today xoxo

Algy’s monster was sent to him by @monster-hugs some years ago, and travelled thousands of miles around the world, just to keep him company and give him someone extra to hug 🙂

Although bathed in early spring sunshine, Algy discovered that the day was nothing like as warm as it appeared. So he found a low-lying spot out of the wind, sheltered by a bank of golden daffodils, and settled down on a soft bed of moss and dry grasses to soak up the sun and dream lazily about this, that, and the little blue monster who was going to travel across the ocean for him to hug!
