Tinkles made my children work hard to find her this morning as she was hiding in the sock drawer in our en suite which is not somewhere the kids usually visit in the mornings!

Of course, the first thought for us all when putting an elf with socks is Dobby the house elf who befriends Harry Potter! Tinkles has little else in common with Dobby, and unfortunately doesn’t seem to much work around the house, but we love her visits anyway!
