Sir Corkival has returned to us, and unfortunately, despite the fact that I was only being jovial at the end of the previous post on this matter.....the squirrels actually got him.
And chewed off his face.
We found the brave soldier, still clutching his sword and shield like the brave poppet he is, at the bottom of a tree this morning.
Please spare a thought for Sir Corky during his recovery period. We hope to see him return to his post on the mantelpiece as soon as he has undergone his face transplant surgery.
