George Aged 4 – Countdown to Christmas Blog – 8 sleeps to Christmas.
Hi, George here. Still driving home for Christmas.
I have an Elf on the Shelf and Sister Freya has an Elf on the Shelf. Has we are about half way through their period of duty I thought I would review their progress to date.
They were late arrives at our house, they didn’t arrive until during Sunday 6th December 2020 (6 days late). Goodness knows where they had been and what mischief they had been causing elsewhere. It’s just mind blowing.
I was very wary of them to begin with as I understood their main motivation, as assistants to Santa was to spy on me and Freya and report back to Santa on whether we were being good or not.
And that bothered me. I started watching myself and what I did. I did not want to jeopardise my Christmas gifts. But after a couple of days of the Elves being here, I learnt with shock and horror that they were worse than me at being naughty, and that is some achievement. In fact, I was learning how to be naughty from them.
Let’s take a look.
Tuesday 1st December to
Sunday 6th December. We do not know where the two Elves on the Shelf where in this time. That is frightening because they were obviously somewhere and rarely take a night off from mischief. We await with bated breath for the complaints to come roll in.
Monday 7th December 2020 They emptied all Mum’s icing sugar out of the cupboard and onto the working surface and wrote “Hello” in it.
Tuesday 8th December 2020 They took the full toilet roll from the downstairs toilet and unrolled it all over the lounge.
Wednesday 9th December 2020 They had had a snowball fight.
Thursday 10th December 2020 They had each done a slice of toast in the toaster. They had taken Mum’s pastry cutter and cut the shape of a star out of the middle of the slice of bread and sat with their head through it.
Friday11th Decembern2020 They were unashamedly and quite openly raiding the cupcakes from Mum’s cake tin.
Saturday 12th December 2020 They were riding round the lounge in Barbie’s Jeep and my large Big Red London Bus.
Sunday 13th December 2020 I think they had the day off for Mamma’s birthday. Are Elf On the Shelf’s allowed days off. Is it written into their contracts?
Monday 14th December 2020 They wrote their name in real made up icing on the work surface.
Tuesday15th December 2020 They each had done a poo and not in the toilet. (Mum said it was not real poo, just a Malteser, pretend one. But I avoided them just in case.
Wednesday 16th December 2020 They were having a huge Teddybears picnic in front of the TV and persuaded the Harry Potter figures to join them.
Did I mention, by the way, that their names are Rory and Ewan? Coincidentally the same as our cousins.
One thing I do not understand about these bloody elves is Mum and Dad’s tolerance of them. No matter how naughty they are, they never get chastised or told to take time out or put on the Naughty Step. Strange that one is, don’t you think?
Any way their reports to Santa no longer intimidate me. As I quietly watch and learn about mischief from these experts in the subject.
They have 8 more days to serve. It will be interesting what they get up to especially as we all end up driving home for Christmas.
See you tomorrow.
