Well, it's certainly cold outside, children, and snowing, so snuggle up, and I'll tell you about when Tish visited a certain gentleman with a long white beard who lives beyond the North Pole... Tish was very angry. She stood pointing and shaking her finger at Kitty. Tish was so angry at her Pussycat that she was actually swearing at him: “You are a stupid silly, Pussycat. Sugar, sugar, sugar. Fut, fut, fut.” (Mamma always said ‘Sugar' when she was angry – and Papa always said ‘Fut.') “You will only get tinned pilchards for dinner.

Holding Dolly under her arm she turned to face the West, and lifted her jumper and vest, to bare her magic Silver Tummy Button. Holding her bottom tight – in case it fell off – she twisted her Silver Tummy Button one full turn to the Right, saying the magic rhyme, “Hold my bottom firm As Button I turn. Wish be mine At this time. I wish I could take Dolly to Father Christmas to get mended, and then come back.” Absolutely in an instant, she was standing in front of the biggest building she had ever seen.
