Blogmas Day 5 - Letter to Santa

IT has been years since I wrote a letter to Santa.

As a child I carefully trawled though catalogues looking for the perfect dolly, Barbie, board game or craft set.
And together with my sister we would write our letters and then leave them by the fire to be collected.
This year my two-year-old son wrote his first Santa letter and this experience wasn’t quite as magical as I imagined it would be.
Funnily enough he didn’t want to sit still and offer some ideas of what he would like to find under the tree on December 25.
He was more interested in having a pretend picnic.
Instead of waiting for his ideas we casually threw some suggestions at him and awaited a response.
So, his list includes a toy car, a book and some animals — he is very easily pleased.
When it came to adding stickers to the letter he seemed far more interested and happily applied 37 different little Christmas stickers to every available space on the paper.
And then many more to the envelope.
I hope Father Christmas appreciates his efforts!
We enjoyed a walk to the post box and my son thoroughly enjoyed posting his letter.
There’s only one thing on my list for this year — a coffee machine.
Two-year-olds are pretty tiring and I love a good caffeine hit in the morning.
I hope to find a shiny machine waiting under the tree and a selection of coffees to keep me going all day long on Christmas and well into 2017 too!
