  1. Hurl. Duck. Whizz. Splat,
    Crouch. Aim. Freeze.
    Lob. Thwack. Roll. Scoop
    Numb hands...Sneeze!


  2. A snowy scene of joy
    All across the hills.
    Valleys peal with laughter,
    Fun and games and thrills!

    @AlistairLane #W8PAdvent

  3. Follow me to happiness,
    to merry cheeks aglow,
    to patchworked dreams of fields in white
    & laughter in the snow

  4. Someone must want a dog for Christmas, said Ralph. How about you in the yellow coat? I’m fully house trained. #W8PAdvent @riewriting


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.
