Advent Calendar

Oh no! My chocolate’s gone missing!
We checked in the toilet
We checked in the laundry
We checked in the bathroom sink
We checked in the car
We checked in the chimney
We found it in the outside bin
(I gave it to my brother!)

Little Lime loves eating cake-icing, doing maths and playing Minecraft. He is nearly 5 and a half years old.
