  1. "Is that for me?"
    Little Wolf gasped,
    Her eyes were all aglow.
    "Have you been good?"
    Her daddy asked.
    "Oh dear, I just don't know!"

    Mum hand the parcel to Nipper and said,
    "This must be for Robin - it matches his red!"

  6. Robin's tail was twitching,
    His feet began to hop -
    Christmas pass the parcel,
    When would the music stop?

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.
