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.✔
Windows securely bolted.✔
Wire cage firmly attached to chimneystack.✔
Drinks poured and ready to sit down and relax✔
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?
Me ."What do you mean We?!!!!!!"
What's in that sack Elf Boss ?
" 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.
