As a writer, this wintry adventure was also a wonderful source of creative inspiration and has helped renew and invigorate my ‘story bank’ for future Whimsy Wood tales.

In the world of ‘Whimsy Wood’ itself, you’ll be relieved to know that ‘Posie Pixie’ did manage to get her Christmas tree up and decorated in time for the festive celebrations! With the help of her furry friend ‘Florence Fox’!

As you can imagine, ‘Whimsy Wood’ was a hive of activity over the festive spell, with carol singing from Mr and Mrs Dusty the dormice and their 6 children. Then there was a huge get together on Christmas Eve night in the big glade within the wood, where all the ‘Whimsy Wood’ folk exchanged their presents to one another. A drop or two of mulled snowberry wine was consumed of course and plenty of snowberry pies were eaten at this annual Christmas Eve get together.

Dr Tustle the tawny owl wasn’t too busy over the festive spell which was a relief. He just needed to visit Dillon and Dingle, Mr and Mrs Dusty the dormice’s twin boys on Christmas Day morning, as they’d sprained their tails from hanging upside down off the Dustys’ Christmas tree! Mrs Dusty was not pleased with them I can tell you!

Mr Bilberry the blackbird, Whimsy Wood’s trusty postman, was thankful for the extra bank holidays over the festive spell! Poor fella was worn out with delivering leaf letters, cards and parcels! Mr Bilberry did think to himself that it’s no wonder Santa delivers presents on one night only each year!

Well that’s all from me and the Whimsy Wood folk for now. I’ll bring you some more news from the world of Whimsy Wood soon. For now we’d like to wish you all a wonderfully whimsical New Year!
