Now here is a truly MAGNANIMOUS man! And if you don’t know what that wonderful word means yet, go to my Wicked Word page right now for my last Wicked Word for the year!

It’s time for me to sign off now for Christmas – the tree is up and twinkling, but there are still mince pies to make, presents to wrap, stockings to put out for Santa, cards to write, friends to visit, LOTS of yummy food to cook and best of all, precious time to spend with my beautiful daughters, my wonderful husband and my very special cocker spaniel Bobby!

So a very happy festive season to all my fabulous friends and fans – I look forward to many happy visits to see you all next year! And remember, if you’ve got time on your hands, there’s a fabulous story to write for my Most Unusual Christmas Story Competition!!

I’ll be back and blogging in the New Year! Merry Christmas!

The Dog Blog returns…with an IF poem!

Woof! Hello all you humans out there! I cannot believe that my mum was about to close the IF competition tomorrow without letting me put in an entry! So I said to her this morning: “Mum, it makes me ineffably sad to contemplate a poetry competition without an entry from the greatest cocker spaniel in the world!” (If you don’t know what ineffably means, you haven’t seen my mum’s latest Wicked Word!). So finally Mum relented…and to thank her, I’ve composed a poem all about her and me!!

If I could be my mum

And my mum could be my pet

I’d always scratch her tum

And I’d NEVER call the vet!

I’d let her eat my supper

And sleep upon my bed

And never wake her up, or

Put shampoo on her head!!

Bobby (a.k.a. The Punk Cocker)

So that’s my entry, so there!! I can’t wait to read the ten winning entries on Thursday! Do you think I just might win? PLEASE?


Wow! 83 entries into my IF competition…and counting!

Well, I think Thursday is going to be a very long hard day! So far you’ve entered a whopping 83 fabulous poems into my IF competition! Just today and tomorrow left till the competition closes, and I have to knuckle down to the very difficult task of judging the top ten…and the even more difficult task of finding the winner! You’ve all worked so hard, on such fantastic poems, that it’s not going to be easy. But it will be great fun! Thank you for your enthusiasm, your talent and your dedication to writing wonderful poems!

The clock is ticking!!
