The short and the short of it

Eglantine made the news, and I didn't even have to show anyone my knickers (Phew, we all say).

Plus I got this in the post today:

Linkedy plink
Things to love about it include: I'm in it, it's all little and cute, it has a flickbook corner, where there's a dog jumping up and down and he - can't - get- the - bone -!! which is the funniest thing ever if you are five, Kate C is in it and so are lots of people I admire and adore, all royalties go to charity so everyone who wrote something in it is ostensibly nice. Like me, I am. My contribution is a bunch of six word stories. Remember when I was all about them? Well, I still am. Six words is a perfectly adequate quantity. I love Simmone Howell's little cartoon too. Made me LOL till I had to SMS an SOS. Hoo Hoo. (Gosh, if you've come for the ambience, you'll stay for the silly jokes. Like this one - Fred's latest and best to date. Why did the elephant stand on the marshmallow?







So he didn't get his feet wet in the hot chocolate?)

  2. I saw your mention in the paper. A blog I recognised! It was...surreal. And now I feel all awkward I've just made that confession ;)

  3. That Lili, she picks all the best stuff (it's her bloggy workshop, after all, where this one was quoted). Go you both. Good to see Jane S. has taken the time to catch up with the class acts.

  4. Did you see this article Pen? Nic found it last night. It irritated me from the very first sentence but I'll forgive it for giving you positive exposure.
