  1. I'm sorry, this one is far from cheerful, but as I considered how many presents Santa would need to count it's where my thoughts took me. And I guess sometimes a story should pull you up and make you think. Will try to be back to my cheery self tomorrow x

    1 900 500 321 Santa counts the presents carefully. But then takes one out every 5 seconds before he even sets off #W8PAdvent @GeorgeKirk2

  2. Now, child, do what Mummy says/ & mind each P and Q/ or else I'll fill my Santa Sack/ with gift-wrapped coal for you #W8PAdvent @JayeSeymour

  3. Some gifts may be tiny, some won’t fit in a box so small but the greatest gift is love and that won’t be wrapped at all #W8PAdvent @sueeves


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
