  6. Mrs Goose knew the village was close. She'd keep the little one warm and bring her back home. @MotherGoutte #w8padvent

  7. On and on Duck skated
    Along the frozen creek,
    To bring Bea Christmas tidings
    And let her stroke his beak.

  8. She had only made one Christmas wish
    Now deep snow lay about.
    It was just a shame that in her mouth,
    Was the taste of Brussels sprout!

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.
