The Faery Queen in Exile

Ada hated having guests in the house. It wasn't that she had a messy house (she had an imp to clean and dust*) but that it was very ordinary. She had no need of the trappings of modern life (apart from a 42" telly and an espresso machine) but Harold, now hoping to be elected mayor, often brought people round 'for nibbles'.

At least that was a task easily accomplished with enchantment. None of the guests ever suspected the buffet was really just cheese hoops and ant's eggs.

* and do the washing and drink all the coffee and throw up in her BEST bedroom slippers

I could use some of that enchantment here for the evening meals I think.

Alas, such food is never filling!

*laughs* Delightful!

(Is it awful that I hope Harold doesn't win?)

Not at all. Nobody likes him.
