The devil is in the detail.........

Allow me to introduce my two new 'assistants'



Well perhaps 'assistant' is a bit strong as they haven't actually been any help at all yet. 

Here they are 'assisting' me with the book.........

Although as I pointedly pointed out, sitting on top of my laptop drumming their hooves against the screen can hardly be described as 'assisting'.  Not to mention their language, which can best be described as diabolical.


They are the work of Jane Laverick, whose blog can be relied upon to be interesting, informative and often downright hilarious.  These two had been languishing in her online shop, in Bargain Corner for ages and I'd been visiting them on a regular basis, just to check they were still there.  However in the run up to Miniatura, I began to fear that they would be snapped up (at a mere £10 each!) so I raided my piggy bank and 'adopted' them.


Not quite sure what I was thinking at the time.  A strange otherwordly compulsion came over me and I was powerless to resist.


They duly arrived, (complete with assorted devilish accoutrements, pitchforks and the like, which I have since confiscated on grounds of elfin safety) and grandiloquently introduced themselves as Hellspawn the Damned and his less imaginative brother Demonspawn the Demonic.

After I'd stopped laughing, mostly at their outrageous codpieces, we had a brief but frank exchange of views and they are now answering to Vern and Malcolm. 


I'm having to keep them away from my little toy dolls, who are of an emotionally delicate disposition, as well as the drinks cabinet and the heating thermostat but other than that they are settling in reasonably well. 

In other news, I'm skirting dangerously close to the borders of a condition known in psychiatric circles as being 'daft as a brush' .......
