Darrell was the first to wake up on this glorious Christmas morning, and upon seeing our stockings had been filled and were now bulging with presents, he soon set about bouncing on me and Nigel until we woke up too!
We took it in turns to open our presents off Father Christmas first …. Darrell was overjoyed with his little set of drawers for his collected treasures and couldn’t believe how Father Christmas knew exactly what he wanted …. and welled up a little….
Nigel was next and was rendered speechless (momentarily) when he saw that Father Christmas had left him a Nigel sized Quad Bike, heaven help us when he is let loose in the garden!
And then it was my turn, but somehow I managed to open both my presents at the same time ….. I felt incredibly blessed as Father Christmas left me the most perfect paint box and a new Wolves Mug to replace my broken one …. I hope that by having my pre match Bovril in it before every match will bring Mick and the boys a bit more luck in the coming few months.
It was Darrell’s turn again …. to reveal a brilliant lava lamp that he can plug into his computer at work, just what he wanted, but even better he said!
…. and Nigel got a little wooden mouse, which he has now put in his crib to be near Baby Jesus.
We then opened a few presents that we had been given by our friends ….Sandra had given us a mahooooosive packet of mini bags of Eric and Friends chocolate biscuits
….. we thought we could take one bag a day when we are back at work for a most excellent mid morning snack and share them with Sandra.
And our friend George, who was adopted in the summer by Jackie and Lewis to live in posh Hampshire sent us the most overwhemlming presents …. there were monkey slippers for Darrell and myself ….
…… which are exquisite and soooooo comfy ….
….. and a tiny chocolate teddy for Nigel (also now with Baby Jesus in Nigel’s crib) We are all truly blessed in a Winter Wonderland type way AND we are so very lucky to have such wonderful friends. We have a few more presents to open, a mahoooosive turkey to stuff, sprouts to cook to an inch of their lives and family to visit ….. but we don’t want to keep you away from your special day, so we will tell you about our festive adventures over the next few days ….. so HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone xxxxxxx HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
