I woke up at 4am this morning and foolishly read facebook. Sweets4ever posted a reminder about this challenge and suddenly I decided I HAD to enter. So what if I'm packing everything I won into a 30kg luggage allowance to move back across the world? So what if I really can't justify buying any more groceries before I go?
Once upon a time there was a wizard named Nigel. He wasn't a very good wizard, unfortunately. It would have been better for him if he'd been an accountant, but wizarding was the family business and so, therefore, he was a wizard. His great aunt had become quite famous with her luring of small children to their deaths via gingerbread cottage. Desperately needing to move out of his parents basement Nigel thought he'd try that. Unfortunately, Nigel is not a very good wizard. The gingerbread? Well, it wasn't ginger. Nutmeg and cinnamon. Tasty enough, but not the classic. Walls studded with candy? The best Nigel could manage was dried fruit. Mainly figs.
He moved in just before Christmas and enjoyed his first peaceful holiday ever. Unfortunately his guttering broke Christmas Night and building in the deep dark forest during the holiday season isn't the best way to get a plumber out.
