  1. Teddy raced for freedom,
    "RUN!" he heard Doll squeal,
    "Good luck," mumbled Sugar Mouse,
    Nibbling orange peel.

  2. And then he saw her. Elfie was sleepwalking! She'd been emptying the stockings they prepared during the day. @mothergoutte #w8padvent

  3. "Found you Stella" giggled Blinky elf. "My turn to hide." So the smallest Christmas star started counting.

  4. With bells on her skirt-tails and bells on her toes. The twinkling star guides her where ever she goes. @riewriting #W8PAdvent

  5. Ellie the elf loved her job testing stockings, and wondered why they never came in pairs. @Words8Pictures @debbiecoope


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.
