Aneeta Whey I would like to introduce you to Aneeta Whey... For long time followers of our Facebook page you may remember us asking for name suggestions for our fairy mascot.  We had some great suggestions at the time but we couldn’t go past the fun play on words suggested by a lovely friend of mine Merena Riley, so thank you again Merena for your great suggestion.

Jo Hello, my name is Jo or Filing Fairy #2. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, Girl Guide leader, volunteer and a perfectionist. Always have been.

My cousins would taunt me about my bedroom being so ordered and tidy, that they would sneak in while I was out and move things around just to annoy me.
