December 25th

Someone just told 
under all green and gold
looking close you'll see
sitting inside the tree
someone you know
wearing a festive bow

so please look really close
do you recognize those
happy gray auntie-mouse
and someone new in the house
now I think you can see
Anna and baby-mouse Bree

we've loved meeting you here
friends from further and near
reading stories telling a tale
written in little mouse scale
Riverland we call the place
bringing smile on your face

now I think it's the time
to end this little rhyme
of a happy gray auntie-mouse
and someone new in the house
who else could they be
but Anna and baby-mouse Bree
both now happily waving you 
goodbye but see you soon too!

Hello dear Anna and baby mouse! I do hope to see you soon again even the Christmas days are less and less. This December has been the best ever getting to know you and all your friends in Riverland and reading your lovely stories! Tell my dear friend Mia, that she should be a writer - and in English - amazing! Happy days to Riverland! x Teje

Hi Anna and baby Bree and everyone in Riverland, I had a lovely December reading this little story every day. I think Riverland is a magical village and it was so fun to meet you all.
If Mia writes any story books, I'll be the first in line to order a copy!!
Merry, Merry Christmas from Anne and family xxx (big thank you to Mia for sharing your adventures)

What a wonderful poem Anna, I'm really going to miss these daily visits, I do hope it won't be too long until we hear from you again.
What a beautiful little baby mouse too with the most perfect name.
I hope everyone in Riverland had a fabulous Christmas, best wishes for 2016 to you all!

P.S. Please tell Mia she is an absolute star! ⭐️

Mia said...

Hello dear Beth,

Thanks you! I blogged more than ever :) in December, but please do not feel overwhelmed by all of it, just "Christmas calendar" posts really.

Happy weekend soon!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
