A ‘brownie’ from the kitchen – not a piece of cake but a fairly-like spirit that mostly appears as an old man wearing a grey mantle (coat).
A Wag-at-the-Wa is fond of children and strict about the house’s outlook: it must be neat and tidy. He even punishes those cooks who are lazy. If anyone dies in the family the Wag-at-the-Wa disappears for a couple of days.
He sits mainly on the pothook and swings to and back. But be there any bend in the kitchen, a tap or a horseshoe, it will be an ideal place for your own kitchen brownie.
