Yes, it's true. We have elephants in the car. Though they actually spent the afternoon in the kitchen. With an egg.
I'd expected them a few weeks ago, though they chose to arrive yesterday. Just before lunch. 24 of them in fact. I wasn't expecting so many. And they don't half take up some space!
We've never had them before, and I'm not quite sure whether they'll feel at home. Will they be too cramped, need more space, get too cold, need extra water, or leave a whole mess behind them... And even though I knew they were coming, their arrival took me somewhat by surprise and (to be honest) I've not prepared for them and there is not a single bed ready.
With a very busy few days ahead, I've popped them all in the car till I've got up to speed and their beds are ready. I don't think they'll mind too much... and I'm sure we'll smell it if they do!!
