Speaking of time I'm not sure where last week went too or what that awful Elf got up to (whilst I was indisposed ) but lets recap to the happy hour of 11.30pm last Thursday 30th November when The Doc and I were sitting congratulating ourselves that
A. The elves had all been packed off to finishing school up at the North Pole.
B. Side garden gate bolted and padlocked. Key in The Docs pocket. ✔
Front door locked and dead bolt on and also the letterbox sealed with strong adhesive..✔
Back door locked. Key on peg away from window. ✔
Cat flap securely shut and locked.✔
Windows securely bolted.✔
Wire cage firmly attached to chimneystack.✔
So I was just saying to The Doc that my changing the password every five minutes had really worked as nothing/no one unauthorised had entered the building.
There was a ghastly silence until the The Doc said
"Well if you don't include the postman banging on the front door (The door bell having been tapped up) earlier this afternoon and delivering a box"
The ensuing conversation went roughly like this.
Me. "What box and who was it for?"
The Doc. "Well it just said for Whom it may concern!"
Me. "Where is it now then?"
The Doc. " I don't know. Norm took it upstairs, as though he wasn't expecting anything he thought it might be just be an early christmas present from his beloved 'Sammy'.
Wherever you are DO NOT OPEN THAT BOX!!!!!
At which point I gave up and went to bed for the entire weekend!!
