The anticipation and excitement of Christmas Day at Chateau Castle Greyskull is both palpable and tangible, everything is done except for writing our letters to Santa ….
…… and this year Darrell and Nigel have been told to think very carefully because they can only ask for two very small things …. although, no doubt, there will be a few extra surprises in their stockings ….
Nigel has put a great deal of thought into his letter, spending a lot of time alone in his room robustly pondering ….. it seems that the events of the past few days have helped greatly with his decision …. and so …. he has asked Santa for a calculator to help with his stock control of coffee stirrers and Jubbly’s, tubs of Frank’s ice-cream and wooden ice cream spatulas and he has also asked if he can be in a Nativity Play next Christmas ….. he knows it will be a long wait for him to tread the boards…. but he says it will be worth it, giving him an ample sufficiency of time to research his role.
…… he asked for some string, because he says he can never find any when he needs it and it’s always useful to have on you and he also asked for a mud face mask because he says the winter weather and central heating has played havoc with his complexion! What is he like?
All I want for Christmas is to see the look on Darrell and Nigel’s faces when I reveal the mahoooosive trip of a life time I have planned for them ….. and if there is any wishes spare I wouldn’t mind a few cooking utensils and a planner for our trip!
Our letters to Santa are now safely placed in our posh festive felt envelope, a pre Christmas present from Vinnie and Aunty Jan….. all that remains to be done now is to light our candle in the garden, followed by a hot bath, mug of milky num nums (snowman soup) and then an early night ……. HAPPY CHRISTMAS …..
