  1. His tummy was silent
    No hint of a rumble -
    Thanks to turkey with trimmings
    And Gruffalo Crumble


  2. Fox looked back at his paw prints, the only marks in the new snow carpet. He smiled. "The wood is mine, all mine." #w8padvent @melgreen73

    Are we supposed to post these on Twitter ourselves as well as on here?

    Gorgeous illustration, Eric - love how pleased Fox looks with himself :-)

  3. Moon casts a spotlight: Enter Fox!
    Star of the woodland show.
    Blinded by such brilliance,
    "My tail's as white as snow!"


    1. Lovely Pippa! - can you edit to include the #W8PAdvent?

  4. Beneath the full moon,
    Sat deep in the snow,
    Fox sat and wondered,
    "Where did the year go?"

    And the moon through the dark of this Christmas Eve night,
    Shone brightly on Fox and the hill that was white. #W8PAdvent @FrancesTosdevin

  6. Some say I’m sneaky
    Maybe they’re right
    But I’m the one
    Eating chicken tonight

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.
