Hi everyone! PD Monkey here!
This was me last year in Norway, which is why I never strayed far from the bunkhouse and the log stove this year!
I just wanted to let you know that Odd Sock has not forgotten about doing her final Norway report, but we are having a few technical problems at the moment. (We lost the connector for putting photos from our camera onto our iPad somewhere in our packing, so can't show you any more of our photos until Apple send us another one...)
Odd Sock is also rather exhausted due to taking on the care of a baby orphaned troll. Melinda wishes it to be known that they were only in Norway to climb ice falls, NOT TO HUNT TROLLS, no matter what Odd and her friends had suspected. This poor little troll was sadly found in deep snow, where he had nearly frozen to death with his poor mother.
If anyone has any information on raising orphaned trolls, please get in touch. He has quite sharp teeth already, so chews the ends off baby bottles, and has nibbled poor Odd's paws a bit too!
He is fairly tiny at the moment, so we are keeping him in a nest of towels in the washing basket, as he can't yet climb out of that. His poor Mum was very big, so we think our little friend will also get much bigger soon. Billy's Mum doesn't know we are looking after him yet, so we think we may get in trouble when she spots him...
We think we are going to call him Bert, as that sounds like a good name for a troll. We don't speak Norwegian, or Troll language, so as far as we can tell he just makes meaningless little grunting sounds at the moment.
