One Day Closer…

To putting that Evil Elf on the Shelf back in the attic – if he makes it! I thought we had it bad here at the Hotel Thompson until I saw this picture on the internet.  I’m not sure what evil soul posted it but shivers… that’s just wrong on SO many different levels.

Our little evil guy, Don Juan, was into lots of trouble this weekend.  He almost gave mommy a heart attack Saturday morning.  She was in the kitchen and was starting to fix me a spinach omelet – what?  It’s one of my favorites 🙂  She got the eggs out of the refrigerator, opened the container and guess who was in the carton?  You guessed right – Don Juan.  She jumped pretty high for a girl.  I was surprised.

On Sunday morning, Don Juan was MIA (missing in action).  We all thought that was a good thing.  Perhaps he got lost in transit in reporting back from the North Pole.  Maybe he made a wrong turn and got hid by a reindeer.  We had high hopes.  Our day was going along pretty well.  That is… until daddy went out front to get the paper.

Who does he find outside on the front porch writing his name into the front porch with his winkie?  Shakes my piggy head.  Something has to be done to this little Don Juan.  What’s worse, daddy brought him back inside of the Hotel Thompson.  This was our chance to get rid of the evil little elf… but no – daddy felt pity on him because it was the Christmas season.  Really dad?  Really?  Perhaps he should sleep with you tonight then… on the sofa.


Friends, we have to ban together.  There’s only a couple of more days before the big day.  I am WAY open for suggestions on this juvenile delinquent elf.   Desperate times call for desperate measures.  HELP me before it’s too late.

Bashful’s second day

Day 2 and Bashful is already into trouble – who would have thought that? I do hope Santa finds him… darn – I should have sent that Elf on the Shelf with him – snorts. XOXO- Bacon

the Misadventures of Misaki

As you know Bashful is staying with me until the New year so I spent today helping to make him comfortable. First of all I helped him to unpack his box

And then I treated him, as I would any guest, to a nice wash:

When he was nice and refreshed, he and I helped mummy wrap up some of the Christmas presents. Only mummy got a bit carried away:


Luckily I realised in time and helped him to break free. Phew!

A little later in the day he went missing. I was worried! I looked everywhere for him until eventually I spotted a familiar face in the tree:


Yep Bashful had found a santa hat and got quite into the Christmas spirit (I did wonder if he’d got into the spirits too lol).


Mummy was hoping to take him into London but the weather is supposed to be pretty…

Special arrival

Oh Friends – do you wonder where that little rolling stone Bashful ended up for the Christmas season – gotta go check this out 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

the Misadventures of Misaki

I’m so excited! We have a visitor for Christmas all the way from Georgia, USA. Yep it’s Bashful!


Bashful has a slight hiccup on his flight. He wanted some fresh air and found himself on the wing of the plane!


Things were a bit rocky (forgive the pun) for a bit there, but he was soon upgraded to business class And enjoyed the rest of the flight in comfort.


He even managed to hitch a lift through arrivals with an obliging celeb.

I gather there was some talk of a future duet too. Maybe they could cover ‘like a rolling stone’ 🙂


Once we finally met up, we hopped on the train back to mine.

Bashful was pretty tired so he headed straight to bed when we got home.


I’m so happy he’s here! I’m sure we’re going to have a fab time together. Pop back tomorrow for more…

Mistletoe Bacon – :)

 My dear friends – I can let Bashful think that he is the only one with swag these days.  In prepping for Christmas, I’m going to wear this head clip ALL.DAY.LONG.  Hey, I’m sweet.  I’m loveable.  I’m cuddly.  Who Wants to Kiss the Bacon First?20131208-205853.jpg
