  1. I’m sorry I scratched and scraped you,
    I had to clean my paws.
    But even though you’re chopped in two
    You’ll soon see Santa Claus. #W8PAdvent

  2. Snappy Xmas to me,
    Crocodile cried,
    He could practically taste
    The elf wrapped inside

  3. Croc didn’t care he was on Santa’s naughty list. Rudolph had tasted so delicious & his nose made a great present #W8PAdvent @riewriting

  4. ‘Shimmering stars and sparkling baubles!’ Said Little Croc. ‘Where am I going to fit my present?’ #W8PAdvent @nancyesaunders


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.
