  1. Two watery whistles toot forlornly from two mouse tummies. ‘Silly duffers. You’re meant to blow out, not suck in.’ #W8PAdvent @OzKidsYALit

  2. Help! Their home was moving,
    Their cosy, mousy nest,
    Old Partridge had misled them:
    Pear trees WEREN'T the best

    @JennyWriteMoore #W8PAdvent

  3. 'I want to go first,'
    'No, me,'
    And with that they were wedged.

  5. The mice watched the lights fade into the distant night. 'Santa,' said Squeak. 'I knew he was real.' @riewriting #W8PAdvent

  6. One, two, three little mice in a huddle,
    Come out from your nest and join the Christmas fuddle. #W8PAdvent @debbiecoope

  7. For the 1st time in their life the dormice awoke long before Spring. The sight they met filled them with awe. @MotherGoutte #w8padvent

  8. OOOO! BRRRRR! CHITTER! Snowballs do NOT make good mouse houses!
    #W8PAdvent @GeorgeKirk2

  9. Shocked into a silence,
    The great Mouse-beth is still.
    Another actor's name
    Is now top of the bill!


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.
