Excellent work everyone, including Sealpuppy and Elder who flawlessly guessed mine :D

The only one i might have made an educated guess at was Natalie, but after all she was my daughter....

And thanks once again to Alison for all the hard work organising it.

It was the German, Cestina - that's what made me think it was you. Likewise the French in No2 (Simone) by Mrs Redboots.
As for the others, I had no idea, but well done JS who guessed mine. I shall have to watch my language if I'm so predictable! :D

So... I had wondered if Alison was Grizel and Sealpuppy, Madge, but wasn't sure enough to post a guess!! I was wildly out on my guess for Abbeybufo, had thought Cestina was either Gisela or Natalie, but then she denied being Natalie... No matter! As always, I really enjoyed everyone's contributions; such fun to look out for each day's new post! Thank you to all the writers and to Alison for her hard work in organizing it all.

Thanks for all your hard work Alison, glad to know who was who ... and good on you Beecharmer for supplying some of the 'rest days'.

All very enjoyable and made the December days pass even more quickly than usual!

ETA I thought mine would be very easy to guess, so was surprised that no one did.

Wrong in my guesses of course, but thanks to everyone, especially Alison, for a lovely advent.

Thank you everyone for the stories and Alison again for the organisation, and really enjoyed them, was absolutely rubbish at guessing but that's half the fun of trying !

I was really surprised no one guessed mine, as I said they seem really obvious, but perhaps I haven't been as repetitive as I thought !

Nice to see some people writing that I haven't read before - Hoping maybe the bunnies have been woken up some of the authors might head over and restart the LGM Day girls monthly short drabbles on a topic? *drops plot bunny food all around authors and backs away carefully*

Plenty of bunnies, just not doing well at finding time to get the stuff out of my head and on to the computer. I'd love to see the Day Girls thing started up again, though.

I would definitely be interested in the day girls drabbles, I haven't written anything but the advent drabbles in a few years. It would be nice if the plot bunnies came back.

Thanks to you all. I always look forward to Advent on the CBB, I really don't like it in the real world at all.
