The SPS – Santa Positioning System & Santa’s magic key

Today Scunner the Grumpy Elf told me about a Top Secret invention called the SPS – the Santa Positioning System.  He thinks he can use it to find my magic key.  I sure hope he can find it before Christmas Eve.  Here’s the email he sent me today:

Dear Santa

After our adventures over the Baltic Sea we all needed a rest.

Poor Tumshie was exhausted after the speedy flight. The good news was that I had a cousin in Germany. His name is Shuster and he makes and mends shoes. He told me that he often repairs your boots. I had never met him before but he is a very friendly Elf indeed. He made us a lovely meal. We had Potato Soup and then some Plum Tart.

After that we all went to bed and I slept for nearly twelve hours. When I woke up Professor Fumblebumble had arrived. I was so relieved. I have been worried about that poor reindeer and your key and wondering where they both are.

I suppose we should tell you what the secret invention is?

I had an idea after Last Christmas. I wanted to be sure that if you ever got lost in bad weather we could find you quickly. I thought that if we could make a wee machine that could track the magic you use then we would be able to find you faster than satellites.

It took a wee bit of doing but we got it working — mostly.

As your key is part of that magic then the SPS – Santa Positioning System should be able to find it.

The Professor has already got a signal and it is coming from Egypt. That’s far away so we are getting ready to leave.

I don’t know much about Egypt. Can you ask the children for some advice? What’s it like?

Okay Santa – I’ll let you know how we get on.

Bye for now


Egypt? I go there every year but only at night.

Flying reindeer are hard to catch – especially with a magic key!

It was on a flying reindeer!  Scunner, my Grumpy Elf, lost my magic key.  It’s the magic key I use Christmas Eve to get into houses.  Then Scunner found my magic key!

And then he lost my magic key — again!

I’m getting worried because Christmas is very soon.  I really need that key to deliver presents with my flying reindeer.  Here’s an email Scunner just sent me:

Dear Santa

Remember the reindeer that had your magic key stuck on its antler?  Well, we chased that reindeer for miles. Your magic key turned him into a flying reindeer!  The poor beast was terrified. It had probably never been a flying reindeer before.

Elf troosers in Paris – but no magic key for Santa

Scunner the Grumpy Elf has been trying to find my magic key.  He looked for it in Scotland.  Then he looked for it in London.  He sent me another email today:

Dear Santa

We arrived at Paris at 3 a.m.  Even though it was so late we still had to be careful. It’s an awfy busy city and very well lit. We flew across the city and arrived at the Eiffel Tower. As we flew around it Glaikit shouted out.

“Jings, I see it Scunner. I see it right there.”

Grumpy Elf Scunner lost my Magic Key!

My Grumpy Elf.  My dear sweet grumpy elf!  Well, today I got an email from Scunner, my grumpy elf.  I hope you are sitting down to read it.

Dear Santa,

I came home to Gloombogle and gathered my family together. I told them I lost your magic key.  Then I asked my mum, dad, my six brothers, six sisters and 36 cousins if they had seen it. None of them could remember seeing it since I came home. Continue reading “Grumpy Elf Scunner lost my Magic Key!”
