  1. "Have you seen the presents?
    They're missing from the tree!"
    "I don't know what you're on about;
    it's nowt to do with ME!"


  2. Hurray!It's not a jumper.
    Hurray! It isn't socks.
    I've got just what I wanted -
    A great big cardboard box.

  3. "Surprise!" cried Doll
    as the box lid flapped,
    "I've undone my string
    and I'm all unwrapped!"

  4. Oh no! That girl has filled my cave,
    With boxes… can’t she just behave?

    'Look,'said Kitty,
    'What a splendid place to hide!'
    'Oh no,' thought Ginny,
    'The presents are inside.'

  6. Sorry I'm late - have been in a painkiller fog for the last week and have so missed the fun of doing micro-fiction for these gorgeous illustrations!

    "There are so many gifts here, for me and for you;
    And when they're all opened, a cardboard house too."

      One handed typing is so rubbish :-/


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.
