  1. Underneath the branches
    elf feet start to move,
    jazz hands are a-waving
    as he finds his festive groove

  2. They tried to put me on a shelf
    To get up to high jinx.
    I said, "No way. I'm not that type:
    Your idea really stinks!


    Had a lovely chuckle to myself this morning writing this! Lovely picture :)

  3. I’m Santa’s little helper, don’t fear, no need for tears.
    Dear Elf, I am not crying, I’m laughing at your EARS!#W8PAdvent@JEFoxley

    Then onto the stage (well, a parcel!) there hopped,

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.
