  1. The Xmas paparazzi
    Had Robin's feathers ruffled,
    He donned his purple hat disguise
    & scarf & off he shuffled.

  2. With my glowing red belly and ability to fly, I’m a shoo-in for Rudolph’s understudy!

  3. With my bright red breast & my purple hat I'm spreading Xmas cheer, I do so love 2 entertain at this snowy time of year

  4. Doobie doo doobie doobie, doobie doo doobie doobie ... I'm singing and dancing in the snow. #W8PAdvent @debbiecoope

  5. "...and if you stick around ladies and gentlemen, I may perform my famous Hot Snow Shuffle!" #W8PAdvent @whoatemybrain

  6. Robin sang but his heart wasn't in it. He was still thinking of what Crow had told him about Santa... @MotherGoutte #w8padvent

  7. love all the tweets so far guys. And that goes for every day so far, they've become a fantastic go-to section of the advent, thank you.

    1. Thank YOU, Paul! Without you this wouldn't be happening!

  8. With a lot of face paint, and even more skill, Rudolph's nose went to the fancy dress party as a Christmas robin.

  9. Robin was rocking,
    His knees a-knocking,
    But spread his wings wide
    And sang loud with PRIDE!

  10. How embarrassing, Nan had done it again. Please Mum, please, don't make me wear the hat. Purple is so not my colour. #W8PAdvent @riewriting


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.
