Here we are again, another December, my son turns 10 in a couple of days time and I did wonder whether our little elf friend would be visiting again this year. But my son has been on Berry arrival countdown for weeks. I did have a minor heart attack a month or so ago when the elf wasn’t where I was expecting to find him, but eventually I managed to track him down and we were ready for Berry the Elf in 2019 – days 1-7.
As usual Berry arrives through his little red door, bringing my son’s advent calendars – chocolate and Lego, along with a little note.
We’ve got to keep things extra pet safe this year as Paddington is likely to attack anything and everything. He’s already had a good investigation of Berry’s boots! Anyway, we started our elf antics with a little bit of demolition.
Berry had left my son with a snowman to make to match his own. Then later in the day my son wrote Berry a message to let him know he’ll be 10 next week and could Berry make him a card. He even said thank you!
Berry challenged my son to a festive game of pinball. Could my son beat Berry’s score?
Berry thought he quite fancied hatching out of a dragon egg for some reason. My son loved this one.
Berry and his friends played pin the nose on the reindeer and left a few noses so my son could try to beat them all before school.
A work Christmas party and remembering to move the elf do not go together – for the first time ever Berry had a day off!
What will the next week bring?
