A Rather Rude Awakening…

The night was dark and silent as the small hand ticked past four. The house was filled with nothing but the hubby’s peaceful snore. When piercing through the darkness came a terrifying shriek, I startled to my senses far too zombified speak. Unconsciously shot upright as my feet swung to the floor, And padded automatically… Continue reading A Rather Rude Awakening…

T’was a magical Christmassy evening, Actually T’was a Thursday at 2pm.  All the evening slots were booked up because “Daddy Pig” didn’t get his finger out and book it in time, which of course wasn’t my fault in any way.  But “afternoon” has too many syllables so anyway… In a snow-sprinkled forest we stood. As… Continue reading A Visit to Santa… (With Author’s Commentary.)
