BEING DIFFERENT…MAKES YOU SUPER!

I’m shifting from my Sherlock goodies, to spotlight a special book today. It’s about a Little Owl Autism… The book shows us that it’s okay to be different, rather it’s a child that suffers from a hearing loss, needs a wheelchair, or is blind, everyone has a special ability that makes us Super! I for one was picked on as a kid, for having thick glasses. What you look like shouldn’t matter, and this amazing book proves it! It’s a must own!

Age wise… I’d say this book’s geared more towards kids 7 and up, you adults might enjoy it too though, as I have!

Wishing you Sherlock Fans a Very Happy Holiday!

Because I’ve been so extremely slow about posting anything of late, just working too much is to blame. I thought I would share some extra Sherlock goodies today, to celebrate this amazing holiday! Happy Holiday’s to all of you, and I hope to post more in the upcoming weeks, as my London trip nears.

Christmas Stories…

I’ve been working on a selection of Sherlock December Ficlets from 2017, by mydogwatson… But I ran out of time, Christmas was here before I could post all of those stories, so I’ll post the complete collection below from 2017 as a Holiday gift! I hope to post more stories from this amazing writer soon!

Note some of these stories I’ve already posted, but I wanted to post these in order, from start to finish!

I also want to send out a BIG THANK YOU to all of my friends that sent me Christmas goodies! My friend Megan spoiled me with a Sherlock Pocket Watch, which I may use for a female Mycroft costume… I’m trying to work off all of the cake first, to design the costume! Megan also sent me these very cool Sherlock pillow covers, she spoils me! Lea sent me the latest Benedict Cumberbatch Christmas card, which I’ll cherish! And Teri sent me another cool Sherlock card too, of the boys celebrating Christmas together! And Tami also sent me a Christmas Card! Much love to all of you and happiness to all of you!

THIN ICE

The Victorian adventure continue between Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, as Mike Stamford tries to play matchmaker once more! This is part of the mydogwatson‘s Sherlock December Ficlets of 2017! She also has a new series that can be found here:  2018 Advent Ficlet Challenge and as always, leave mydogwatson some comments, she’d love to hear from you! [Art by arashicat at deviantart.com!]

A Teaser from Thin Ice, the full story can be found here: Thin Ice

I did not move from the divan. I was alone in the parlour, save for the uneasy company of my own darkening mood.

It was impossible not to hear Watson up in his room, whistling a cheerful tune as he divested himself of his second-best suit and donned…well, I could not imagine what he might be donning, actually.

I had reacted with equanimity early this morning when Watson announced that he would not be in for luncheon, as Stamford had invited him to take the meal with him at his club and Watson had accepted, despite the inconvenience caused to me. Apparently, my important plans for the day were of no consequence. It happened that my scrapbooks were in dire need of updating and Watson was a dab hand with a brush and pot of glue. I credit his surgeon’s fingers for the fact that he always made a much neater job than myself of pasting items of significance into my alphabetised volumes.

But no, apparently it was more important to go eat mediocre beef and soggy Brussel sprouts with Stamford than it was to sit in our cosy rooms and assist me.

The news had quite spoiled breakfast, which was usually a time when I could freely indulge in a bit of observing and then cataloguing a variety of Watsonian expressions, while he was engaged with the Times and the marmalade. But with his announcement, my mood soured, which he did not even seem to notice. Things had not improved one whit after his return from the club, when he cavalierly announced that after being gone for two hours and seventeen minutes over luncheon [that a small stain on his left cuff proved to have been as mediocre as predicted] he would be going out yet again this evening.
