Christmas is here!! and now it’s gone!
Well that went quick!, all these weeks of buildup and stress and while I’m sat typing this it’s all finished!
Winding the clock back, we all went up to Ray’s Farm yesterday as Father Christmas was popping before setting off on his epic voyage! You could have heard a pin drop. He is very much the real thing!!! there was Bev, her Mom, Elly and Sam, Beaver, Sam, Jessica and Ben and also Judy together with Dan and Nanny and Grandad! Then back to ours for a good drink before unloading the Vectra full of Toys. (I’m not kidding either!)
Poor old Lexi was desperate to get to sleep before 9pm but no matter how tight she scrunched her eyes up, it just wouldn’t work!!! It didn’t help when she kept hearing sleigh bells from the bottom of the stairs either!
6:00am Sharp, a little voice “I’ve been sleeping all night, so it must be Christmas” and by 6:02 we were on the stairs and guess what! HE’D BEEN!! Poor little Harri who was fast asleep was dragged out of her cot to get very excited about the boxes!!!
Lexi thought all Harri’s toys were brill too and occasionally let her play with them!
I must remember to thank Father Christmas for attaching everything with little bits of twisty wire and sticks of plastic and then sellotaping over them aswell just to make it even harder!! Oh yeah don’t wake up on Christmas morning without at least 30 AA batteries, I only had 28 and we’ve run out!!
Then Judy and Abbi popped up with even more boxes and the day was just too much for Harri who conked out to bed!!!
Then off down to Nanny and Grandads for a feast fit for about 12 hungry rugby players. That followed by Sherry and Guinness, and then I conked out!!!
Were all sat around now watching shite on the telly and descending into the who’s going to put the kids to bed argument, I’m desperately trying to be “relaxed” but I can’t see me lasting the whole night without having a “Bezerk”
I’ll let you know how it goes, if you don’t hear from me in a while, draw your own conclusion!!!
