Today was our last day at work before Christmas so we had a party for the children. There was ‘Crimbo-limbo’, an amazing festive feast, music and lots of games. There was even an incredible Grotto. But there was one thing missing – Father Christmas.
It’s a very busy time of year for Saint Nick and as a result he was having trouble getting to us in time for the party.
I like to help out whenever I can so we told Santa not to worry and that I’d take care of things for him.
I very much enjoyed my brief role as gift-giver extraordinaire. A few of the children seemed surprised to find that Father Christmas was a wheelchair-using woman who shouted ‘Biscuit’, but most of them just enjoyed the festive atmosphere, the presents and the mystery of it all.
