  1. Fetch my dinner, Uncle said,
    A fresh & festive feast.
    Silently, in snow-whipped woods,
    We stalk the Xmas Beast.

  2. Beth finally found her way to Narnia and wandered through the woods, sure that adventure and danger lurked near. #W8PAdvent @debbiecoope

  3. If Alice and the Cheshire Cat could cross the Black Woods then they would be safe. @mothergoutte #w8padvent

  4. And then a voice saying: ‘Lay down your knife, Felicita. Do not fear. Follow the footsteps to Christmas.’ #W8PAdvent @OzKidsYALit

  5. Her quest to find the mistletoe
    Had only just begun.
    Sharp steely eyes searched high and low,
    Such dark and lonely fun.

  6. They stepped into the forest. If the fat man was there they would find him and bring him out in time. #W8PAdvent @GeorgeKirk2


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.
