Clarence Amberwood

9 Sep

This little chappie came in from the cold today to join my monster family.

Clarence AmberwoodClarence hates the cold. Usually un-commonly mild mannered, the slightest nip from Jack Frost and he is transformed into a grouchy, offensive, foul-mouthed liitle hooligan. His wife Geraldine makes sure he always has his hat and scarf which she hand-knitted for him and ties firmly over his mouth to stem the torrent of potential abuse.

Clarence AmberwoodClarence’s constant companion is his pet mouse Percival who rides happily in his pocket. Percival is a timid little creature who lives on a diet of toffee apples and eggnog. He sleeps for most of the day but when he is awake he amuses himself by singing show tunes and playing practical jokes on unsuspecting cats.

Clarence AmberwoodClarence turned out to be a bit of a team effort. My mum knitted him his cosy hat and scarf, his jumper used to belong to my Dad but he donated it to my monster stash and I felted it down in the washing machine. Mr Monster also had a hand in the project as he came up with Clarence’s name. Overall … very happy with him.
