Myrtle and Eduardo are the first to arrive
"Is that what I think it is?" squeaks Mathilda when she spies Eduardo's mysterious bottle.
"Yes, dear Mathilda. It belonged to Great Grandpapa, his famous vintage Birch and Amanita wine, thought I'd share a drop or too. Hmmm, it looks like that belonged to Great Grandpapa too!"
Eduardo said as he caught sight of Myrtle's brand new shoe...
Oh dear, looks like Myrtle's been pillaging the burial grounds again!!!!
What sumptuous delights! Gertrude brought a delicious macarron filled with cream and strawberries, Myrtle a rare and delicious egg and Nelimosa (the flouncer) brought a Snortleberry Surprise.
None of this has escaped Weesk and The Woo, who are peering through the greenery and drooling too...
"Won't you have some Moss Dew cordial and join us dear Woo" asks Mathilda
"Moss Dew cordial?"
"Yes" snickers Mathilda.
"Come Woo have some Snortleberry Surprise" invites Nelimosa " I made it myself" she boasts.
"Those aren't Snortleberries" indignantly cries The Woo
"Surprise!!!!!" chortles Nelimosa.
Don't worry!! Weesk is here as well , enjoying Strawberries with Gertrude but not a drop of Amanita brew ;)
He knew, unlike The Woo that Moss Dew cordial doesn't stink and turn your brain to stew!!
Please forgive him for not telling her of Mathilda's dastardly plan, you see Woo's been rubbing stinging nettles in his eyes again lately, punishment for his mishaps and naps!
But wait who's that upon the fern? It's the Christmas witch, oh no! Did no-one invite her at all?
Oh we're sorry Witchy-Poo, this will never do. 'Twas all a rush and in our haste we forgot to visit your tree!!
"Oh dear friends, I'm afraid I cursed you in my despair" wailed the Christmas witch. "I called upon The Galibeast, he'll crunch your bones and eat you up!!!"
" But I've only worn this hat once" sighed Mathilda.
"Don't despair, The Beast can be pacified with a slurp of your lovely egg!"
Be still and show no fear, The Galibeast approaches....
Yippee it's working!! But where is The Woo? Did he crunch her bones and eat her up too?
No, she's here under a bush, with an un-Snortleberry stuck to her nose. Looks like the Amanita brew got the best of her too!!
Anyone fancy a cup of tea?
