In a moment of sheer vodka-induced boredom, Fanny created this lovely, Belladonna-themed snow-globe. A little plasticine model of Belladonna, horrifyingly realistic, was placed inside the globe, itself a forgotten Christmas present from 1981. I've emailed Toys R Us to see if they're interested in the design.
Meanwhile, Belladonna has been whining like a spoilt brat today, demanding her Christmas gifts. I found her standing on top of my Louis Quatorze piano, stamping her feet on the lid in a little rage. As my least favourite member of staff, I've tried countless times to terminate her from my household, with little success. Knowing that I'd be shackled with her over the Christmas period, I spent Christmas Eve wrapping up a few 'special', unforgettable gifts for her, especially hand-picked, to show her just who is boss.
The second present I thrust into her grubby little hands was this.
That's right. It's an electric eel. A thoughtful and heartfelt gift to a much-loved maid. I even wrapped it in a sheet of tinfoil. She's in a sulk now. I can't think why!
