  1. #W8PAdvent
    Thru' iceflakes steadily snowing
    One candle still shone bright
    Ladybird kept going
    Fae needed her gift tonight.

  2. Come spotty bugs & mini beasts
    & spiders wild & hairy
    We've Xmas cake for everyone,
    Sang the tiny festive fairy

    It was just an mistake!"

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.
