Background Behind the Hill by High Four
for Mischief Circus
I know Easter isn't over yet but I have so many Christmas cards to send out that me and the elves really had to get started behind the scenes. Yes, yes.. that should have been the elves and I or the elves and me BUT!! I make the hot chocolate every twenty minutes or so and you can be sure there will always be enough gingerbread on 'Christmassy' plates to keep even the grumpiest gnome happy so I do think in this instance I can have pole position.. Usually we like to stick to employing elves but this year we are expanding Santa's workshop and we do need Gnomes in the packing department (more on that later)
This club elf is ready to start work advertising the coming Season and personally I think she is looking grand! The interior of the packing department is still needing a few home comforts before the Gnomes arrive so they are not going to be here for at least a week. The Elf section is almost ready and the Angels are teaming up with the Choir to keep everyone singing along although maybe this year we had better be careful with the song requests as last year one pesky Pixie kept asking for the 'Fairy tale of New York' and we all know how raucous that became. For now we will just wait for this lovely Elf to open the door to the secret workshop at the end of our garden in a place we like to call Foggy Bottom.
