The Midnight Hour

What a shenanigans there was last night. I tell you I needed to go and lie down in a very dark room afterwards! But I disgress. Let me back track to 11.50pm. Everywhere was quiet. The house had been on lock down since early evening against any invasions of the Elf type.
The Doc had his checklist and we were going through it for the umpteenth time.
Side garden gate bolted and padlocked. Key in The Docs pocket. ✔
Front door locked and dead bolt on.✔
Back door locked. Key on peg away from window. ✔
Cat flap securely shut and locked.✔
Cat indoors.✔
Windows securely bolted.✔
Wire cage firmly attached to chimneystack.✔

Drinks poured and ready to sit down and relax✔

Then The Doc piped up with  " I think the cat  needs to go out"
Me "Well tell her to use her toilet tray. I'm not opening the door up now !!"

Having sorted the cat out, just sat down again with said drink in hand when I heard a rustling noise.
"Did you hear that ?" I asked The Doc.
" Relax" he said, "I think it was the letterbox . Probably just one of the neighbours posting us an early christmas card".

"At this time of night?" I said..

Then a rather familiar voice called out
Cooeeeeee.  Anyone around?

Wev'e arrived!!!

Me ."What do you mean We?!!!!!!"

What's in that sack Elf Boss ? 

Eek!!  " Who are you?"

" I'm  L'th. 
I've come with Elf Boss. He is going to teach me the ropes".

By this time I had a distinct headache coming on and before anyone says 'Oh isn't he cute' NO  he isn't'.  Just wait till I tell you what he got up to this morning.!!!

I need to cancel christmas forthwith.

Stay tuned during the month till the 24th Dec for daily shenanigans from the dynamic duo 
Elf Boss and Little L'th.

Mrs. A., I love your witty words that keep everything so exciting when you post. I came back in time for the shenanigans of the elf and he's brought a friend - how delightful! It is so pleasing to see that you've got company to keep you entertained during this blissful holiday season. You're such a delight!

Hi Mrs A,
oh my word you didn't think of the letter box did you.
I can't wait to see what they have been up to.
I'm sure it's going to be interesting, and very frustrating for you and the Doc, but they sure are very cute.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
