Now, although I am very fond of the company of Tom Bombadil, I do find that there are so many “merry dol”s that I can put up with in any one day. Whilst Frodo and company stayed in his house for the whole day, I hung around for a breakfast or two before having a look around the Old Forest for new adventures.
I found my way to an abandoned cottage, and – nice hobbit that I am – soon found myself helping out a young Brandybuck who was having a few issues with spiders. The careless lad had lost a backpack. Not only did I find this for him, but I also extinguished a particularly large spider. All in a day’s work!
Once I had finished my adventures for the day I headed back to Toms house. Very disapppointed that the beautiful Goldberry was nowhere to be seen. But she had prepared me the most glorious supper, which was very promptly eaten. Tomorrow I am off to the Barrow Downs.
