  1. Christmas Day for Santa: a chair and mug of warm cheer / Toasting feet by the fire, then rest for another year #W8PAdvent @JayeSeymour

  2. Yay Jennifer! Rhyme before work, excellent!

    1. That's the nicest bit of my day done now Jan... it's all downhill from here ;)

  3. As soon as Santa had snored to a slumber, they rolled up the rugs and began to Rumba #W8PAdvent @sueeves

  4. "Come on Santa!" the elves all cry.
    "It's Christmas eve and you must fly,
    No time to eat one more mince pie!"
    @W8Advent @GeorgeKirk2

  5. What a jolly Father Christmas this is, though the elves look like trouble! Beautifully executed as ever.

  6. On his last stitch,Tip wished that he'd be chosen tonight. He wasn't going to let Top sneak up on Santa again. #W8PAdvent @jancarr


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.
