Advent post No.4: looking forward to Christmas?

wendytrish

Wendy and her friend Trish are sickened by Christmas commercialism.
And this

is the last straw!
But then:

Benji charms a shopping crowd! Wendy’s specs mist up! All change.

That's actually rather sweet :)
Or cynical. Isn't Benji sweet? I love his mittens.
I'm a half glass full type so naturally I found it sweet :) Yes, Benji is lovely and I remember having mittens on a string :)
Blushes - I made a crib out of Lego once for an off-licence window - well, what 's wrong with a crib in an off-licence window?
Oh, what fun. Benji saw nothing wrong with it!
I love this. Thank you!

Posy is wonderful!
Oh boy! I remember laughing at that in 1982! I do love Posy.
Me too! I love the chorus of robins, with the ending 'ring out wild tills!'.
Think how old Benji would be now, gulp.
Benji would be midway between my sons, and I noticed the other day how grey the eldest is getting. Gulp, indeed.

John and I have adored Posy since I picked up one of her books at a second-hand bookstall. (Imagine giving away any of her books!!!) We pored over it all the way home in the bus and have bought all of her books since then.

The comment about finding a Posy book in the s/h bookshop was from me, Penny (SVH), but it won't let me tell you that... :)
I'm sorry if you have trouble commenting as I love to hear from you.

I was given signed copies of the first two Posy books as they came out and have most of the rest. My daughter followed Posy in the paper as soon as she could read and is still a huge fan.
This did make me chuckle. I can see myself in it, somehow!
That's Posy's great skill!
