The Elves of Sileby

Every year at Christmas we put a few fairy lights on the little trees in our garden, and year by year we add another bauble or two. We do it to bring a little happiness to our ordinary corner of our village. When we first did it, when we moved here 14 years ago, the lights were ripped out and thrown in a nearby hedge by an unknown nasty person or persons. I went out and bought some more the next day and replaced them. This happened for the first three years. But we moved them each time a bit further back, out of reach.
