      That's where you trick them! Grab any old box and stuff it with filling and hide the soft toy inside! :)

      Great tip! I spent about twenty minutes trying to wrap a dressing gown before getting fed up and just tying a ribbon round it. :D

      Haha! Thankfully they didn't turn him green! It's more the over-sized ears that gave him the Yoda look! I will try to get a picture up later, do we already have a pet thread?

  9. So much work!!! They should not be allowed to call this a holiday...

  10. Why is it that when you have to read a book in a certain amount of time, it seems to take so much longer than usual? :/

    1. Inver

      Inver

      Yes I have noticed that too.

    2. Hayley

      Hayley
