Kevin was tearing his hair out, nearly dislodging Fifi. He hadn't heard anything about a party, and certainly didn't want to have one in his own home.He hadn't expected Sharon to turn up (With or without those dratted monkeys) and she was always trying to help.. or to interfere depending on which way you looked at it. Leigh had arrived with Val on her 4x4 broomstick..(Thank goodness the message got through) they parked out in front of the house so Nan would see it and know that she wouldn't be alone helping Kevin. They tried the kitchen door.. it was unlocked! Not like Kevin at all.. he was usually quite security conscious. And there was Sharon. Kevin had decided it would be a good idea to keep her in the kitchen where she could take charge of the nibbles. He had made sure that the mince-eyes were already in tins in the cupboard and the knees and crackers couldn't be spoiled as they were already wrapped up. He only had to make the tadpole rolls and some of those party snacks.. finger food.. no, real fingers.
There was a very loud banging at the door. As Kevin slowly opened it it was suddenly dragged out of his hand and there was Lucy! She arrived in Christmas gear, martini garnished with a bloodshot eyeball in one hand and a rather tatty angel doll in the other. Oh Great! The last time Lucy was in the same room as Sharon sparks flew. Real sparks! Luckily there was loads of rooms in the house and if Sharon could be kept in the kitchen with Leigh and Lucy in the living room with Val they should have enough time to have a sweet sherry and a mince eye before they were sent on their way.
There was an odd sort of scratching on the hall window as if a branch were scraping back and forth. Kevin wanted to ignore it. He already had two more guests than he had ever had in his house at the same time. Enough was enough.
I have been invited to be a Guest Designer at the Dream in Darkness Challenge Blog. I am so pleased and honoured to have been asked and I hope you will visit them for much more creepiness.
As always I used neenah, promarkers, pencils and Craft Artist 2

WOWee, I'm super stoked I got to take the new 4x4 broomstick out for a spin, it purrs and spits like a miffed kitten, just as it should! Oh no, not Lucy AND Sharon, at least we have all these yummy nibbles to keep us entertained until whatever is at the window spoils the tense atmosphere!ReplyDelete
Fabulous scene today!!!!! Love it!
Oh Leigh! You made me bark with laughter.. my husband nearly spilled his morning cuppa! 'spits like a miffed kitten' fantastic!Delete

Thank you Fiona... but these are normal party fare for us Brits. xxDelete
I really not sure about the canapes at this party - mince eyes!!! Loving the story. Great image and background too! xxReplyDelete
Well Deborah, if you can get to Kevin's I am sure Sharon will save you some bird burgers and some raw egg and grass rolls. I hope to see you there. xxDelete
I am soooo scared of that scratching sound!!! It cannot bode well for Kevin! Got us on the edge of our chairs again, Sue! Love it xxReplyDelete
Well Nan, I am wondering what you're getting up to in the next episode.. I hope you will be keeping an eye on proceedings.ReplyDelete
Sounds like quite the spread! Martha Stewart is getting a bit jealous. Those are some knickers on Lucy. I'm pretty sure she's already 3 sheets to the wind. I'm worried about that scratching. xxDReplyDelete
I have so enjoyed your story and all the fun comments. I am catching up right now..Lucy looks pretty serious about that cleaning.ReplyDelete
