Nigel has been anxiously checking every day to see if Motor World, in our village, had put their Christmas Nativity display in the window ….. because that’s when he knows it’s really Christmas!
And finally yesterday WAS that day, you could almost hear his whoop of delight from Castle Greysquirrel when he spotted that an illuminated castle had appeared in one of the side windows, which took his little breath away, it was one of the most beautiful things constructed out of cardboard that he had ever seen …….
…… and then he rushed home to fetch Darrell to look and admire and share his joy and excitement ….. but there was more to come, a lot more …..
In the front window was an exact replica of our hostelry of choice ….. The Woodman which is just across the road from us …..
…….. and a copy of our village church ……. by then Nigel was almost beside himself.However, the best was saved till last ……
….. Nigel’s beloved knitted nativity figures had been relocated to a model of the church hall, which is at the side of the church ……….…… it was a little more crowded than usual …..
……. but no less magical to Nigel.
Darrell said that Nigel just went very, very quiet, only occasionally letting out a little sigh now and again that full of awe and wonder.
Darrell also said that this year Motor World had definitely pulled out all the stops, not only for Nigel but for the whole village …..
