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

Scunner.

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

New Reindeer at the North Pole for Santa!

We got a new reindeer at the North Pole today.  Mrs Claus told me recently that it would be an idea to have a few more reindeer in case any of the others got ill.  She is a very wise lady and I had to agree.

However, when the newest reindeer arrived I realised that he might not be up for the job.  He is a beautiful reindeer but, well, he isn’t very good at flying! Continue reading “New Reindeer at the North Pole for Santa!”
