I hear the Advent Calendar is all about knights this year. Nigel says to the lads as he approaches....
What are you doing dressed up in my King Henry V costume Nigel? Henry asks.
You said you didn't mind. Nigel replies.
I don't but that was months ago. Henry reminds him.... I thought you would have changed out of it by now.
But I don't want to. Nigel tells Henry. I want to wear it FOREVER! Anyway it is perfect for this year's Advent.
Forever is a long time. Henry explains to Nigel. Still you are right, you are dressed for the occasion...kind of. Come on let's go and open the next little window.
They boys search for window number four.
Here it is! Nigel says as he points with his sword.
I think you might have to put the sword down Nigel. Francis says.
Nigel reluctantly abandons his sword (for now) and opens the window.
It is a big window! He says gleefully.
He opens it up closely watched by Henry.
A horse! Gwilym says as he looks down at the horse.
Of course! Says Nigel. Every good knight needs a horse!
Oh you are lucky to get the horse. The boys all say.
Hmm....where to put it.... Nigel ponders.
Finally! He places the horse down on the scene.
The boys look on approvingly. Just need his tack now. Henry says.
Are you REALLY going to wear that outfit forever? Gwilym asks Nigel.
Of course. Nigel replies.
He is odd. Francis says to Henry quietly....I mean who would wear the same clothes all the time?
The irony is lost on Francis who pretty much wears the same clothes all the time and of course the other boys aren't the best at changing especially often!
I am a Knight and a King! Nigel announces
Well not strictly speaking. Henry reminds him...you are only BORROWING my outfit!
Humpfff...Nigel thinks to himself. I AM THE KING
