I HAD GIVEN DINKY AND SMIDGE THEIR PRESENTS AND ASKED IF THEY WERE JOINING US FOR THE FEASTING OR GOING TO SEE THEIR FAMILIES.  THEY SHRUGGED.  WELL YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US.

THEN I WAITED FOR THE CAP TO GET ANGEL'S GIFT ALL WRAPPED AND READY FOR HIM TO SIGN THE CARD, I HAD ALREADY DONE SO.  I PUT ROO'S GIFT CAREFULLY IN MY BAG, THEN THE PACKAGES FOR KATT, OPAL, THE CAP, PTG,  GIFTS IN THEN I WENT TO WHERE MY MAGIC NEEDLES WERE SITTING IDLE.  THERE WAS THE PRETTIEST SOFT WHITE SWEATER THERE WAS ALSO A BONNET THAT FASTENED UNDER THE CHIN TO KEEP HER HEAD WARM WHEN ADRAGON BACK.  I GATHERED THEM TO WRAP WHEN I SAW SOMETHING ELSE.  THERE WAS ALSO A NECK SCARF.  THE NEEDLE HAD DONE MORE THAN I HAD ASKED.  BUT IT WAS PERFECT.   CAN'T HAVE THE GIRL CATCHING COLD WHEN SHE HAS TO PRESENT HERSELF TO SUCH IMPORTANT BEINGS.   I WRAPPED IT AND PUT IT IN THE BAG.  

OPENED MY AMULET TO THE CAP.  ANGEL'S GIFT IS ON THE YARN BIN BY MY CHAIR WRAPPED AND THE CARD ONLY NEEDS YOU TO SIGN IT.   HOPE HE GOT THAT.  AND OFF I WENT TO PUT MY GIFTS UNDER THE TREE.  IT WAS GETTING LATE AND I NEEDED TO GET SOME SLEEP BEFORE IT WAS MORNING.

Well it is that Special Day come around again!

Pressies Day for my Friends

Being the Keeper of the MC Repository I have the pick of the stock to send gifts to them.

So this year I have chosen from my Special Event Room for each of them.

Cap’n Bob, Angel and Charlie are easy as they all live in that frozen ‘half the year round’ (?)paradise called the U.S. of A. The lovely soft warm mittens.

For my old and absent Friend Grim – a sacksful of carrots.

Miss Katz, Mrs Fletcher and Opel sprinklings of angel dust to make their cakes even more wonderful.

Pup the toy horse so she can tuck this in with her when she sleeps and dreams of battles ahead!

And my old Friend Jenifer a snowflake!

But this is a magical snowflake. Not only does it change its shape every time it is used - but it NEVER melts. The perfect bauble for her couture!

I think that I have remembered everyone. My broom will tell me if I have not as it has to deliver all of these!

So A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!

Yes, it's been another wonderful year and I've gathered, wrapped, and put all my gifts under the tree.

For Cap, a snow globe with a teddy bear inside

Charlie, a new pair of wellies for mucking (easy to hose clean) 

Roo Roo, a wooden travelling box with a bunch of holes inside (for carrying her potions & kaboom stuff, so there's no accidental kabooms) LOL  

PTG, a nice wooden case of exotic teas to enjoy when he can't get to his Hong Cha

Miss Katt, Opel and symbolically for Mrs. Fletcher (put on her chair in the kitchen in remembrance), new aprons to protect them while cooking up our favorite meals and desserts

Pup, I found a most beautiful sheath that will fit her training sword perfectly!  I'm sure she'll want to mount it for display in her room like a trophy for her accomplishments as, once she returns from Pern, I'm sure she'll surely get a new Warrior sword and sheath for using in the battles to come.

For my dear friend also (but absent) Grim, an "ugly Xmas" sweater decorated with a computer and monitor that lights up with Xmas lights! LOL

And, my other absent, but dear friend, Jenifer, a crystal pin (red and yellow) in the shape of a stick of dynamite, in remembrance of the good ole days!

MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL!

As we gathered around the Huge Tree my heart overflowing with love and joy for my group of slightly bent inmate of This Our Special Area of The Midnight Castle and our Special Room.

It was now my turn to hand out my Gifts.

To PTG I gave a Rare set of ancient books that have the power to be what ever he wanted to read.

To Roo I gave her a Magic Wand with instructions on how to use it.

To Miss Katt a new cooks hat with Kiss The Cook on the brim and a set of oven gloves. pot holders and a fancy apron.

To our darling Opel,, I gave her a specially made complete cook ware set and a brand new set of knives

To our dear Mrs. Fletcher I hung on her favorite chair a shawl with a heart saying always in ours

To my Pup I had made of gold an arm band with a Dragon carved in it.

To Charlie I had made a brand new set of overalls with multi patches and a new shirt and dungarees with patches of all the critters.

To Salty I found on the Northern Island a bottle of  Viking Ale

Under the tree where two gifts one to our absent Grimm * a remote control that would work on any thing even a micro wave ,,,, and for our head blower upper Jenifer a dozen TNT sticks that is set off would fill the room /sky with confetti.

That left our Angel   I called her yo join Charlie and I at the tree.

She did so with a *** what are up to look on her face****

Both Charlie handed her her gift and waited for her to open it.

Go ahead it will not bite I said ,,,

Unwrapped Angel found a beautifully made case ,,, it was made from deer hide beautifully dyed to a soft fawn,,, it had pockets all over the font and inside  with dividers for papers ,,,  a place for her camera and film and straps on the outside for over the shoulder and one inside to hand carry,,, the final touch was a side sheath that held a small stiletto 

I raised my glass ** To another year with all of us together ***

From somewhere deep in a dimensional rift a voice is heard...

"Aw shucks!  Hey, what does this top pin do-"

BOOOM!

Opening my gifts, I am amazed at the wealth of goodies I have been given. Such a lot of thought has gone into them.

The books that the Cap’n has given me look interesting and I will read through them later to see what they contain.

But now it is party time with feasting and dancing around our Xmas tree.

Dish after delicious dish of food appear as if mt magic from the kitchen, served by our kitchen team with beaming smiles and pristine clothes, that shed no dirt.

They are also so happy that all the washing up of dirty post and pans are being done automatically as well.

There is a warm friendly glow around the Tea Room of the kind that it has not experienced for quite a while now.

Our troubles with the evils all about us have, for a time being, been put to one side

I sip my hong cha and subconsciously my fingers edge to the plate with the sweetmeats on it!

I am just about to take one when my broom admonishes me!

“If you eat that you will be too fat to enter the tunnels tomorrow!”

As I have no intention of entering any tunnels in the immediate future, I am somewhat bemused!

“You need to read the thin red book that the Cap’n has just given you.

“All will be revealed when you read it!”

Grumbling as today is supposed to be a Festive Day, I rummage through the pile of ancient texts until I find a thin scruffy notebook

On its covers are tiny drawings of rabbits!

Can this be one of Grim’s secret notebooks?!

At this moment my inner psyche receives a jolt!

I am shaken to the core!

I look around me but all here is peaceful and still festive.

Even Charlie seems relaxed and happy so that excludes all troubles with our animals.

What on earth was it?

In the midst of the pleasantries and festivities a second explosion erupts in the ceiling.

A lone figure crashes through and lands directly on the wonderfully adorned Christmas tree.

She spits out a mouthful of tinsel and holds up a small brooch in the shape of a stick of dynamite.

"Well, that was handy!"

I just happen to be looking upwards and just in time to avoid being speared by the crystal wand of a very large star spangled angel.

It is the piece de resistance of our tree that jet propels towards me.

I just catch sight of its rocket launcher and my male pheromones instantly gather that IT is a SHE

NNNOOOOO!!!!

It is Arabella and she has succeeded in penetrating the Tea Room defenses.

I bellow: “SOUND THE ALARM!!

Putting the little red book to one side and slashing at the foul creature with my broom!

Unfortunately for me, my broom seems to be a coward and has retracted its length into a small stick!

I waft ineffectively in the air with it before deciding that only brute force and ignorance, regardless of personal safety, is the “order of the day” whilst my companions in the Room can prepare themselves.

I end up with a mouthful of pine needles and a shimmering tutu.

But where is its owner?

BONG! (in fact) DOUBLE BONG!!! as I am struck hard on my curly locks by a stick of dynamite!!!

It is at this precise moment that I remember my lesson learned long ago that electrostatic forces rubbing on hair produce sparks.

And one of these has just ignited the blue touch paper of the dynamite.

My last coherent thought whilst cuddling the evilness that has just descended is “don’t cry for me Argentina!” as it ignites.

To envelope us both in a tickertape of confetti!

"Pretty!"  I get to my feet and adjust my tutu.

The confetti that was once the festive wrappings of all the presents sprinkles down like snow.

Snow that creates spot fires in random places.

"Prettier!" I smile, while people around me frantically search for buckets and fire extinguishers.

I notice PTG staring at me in disbelief.

Or possibly apoplectic rage.

Or he could have gas...

I shrug.  "So, you want the good news or the bad news?"

PTG's broom engorges like an inappropriate erection and proceeds to sweep up random debris.

I don't wait for an answer, everyone wants the bad news first.

"I lost Grim.  Last thing I remember we were eating pasta while on the run from some nefarious organization.  She went through a door and I waited for about six months... but she never came back."

There is a sense of dejection among the room.  I need to cheer them up with some good news.

"But, it turns out I'm corporeal again!"

I toss a lit stick of dynamite in the air and catch it with a wink and a nod.

"So that's good news, at least!"
