Creche Xmas Party

Lovely summers evening in the Bay having fish and chip and then a vist from special guest Santa, Spider man and his friend Karate Man and the Chicken Guy.

We got a call from Santa today !!!!

This is a wonderful idea, you email your details and Santa calls your child back within 60sec and what your child asks for is recorded and then emailed to you.

So Cool, Max was so excited that he called us.

4th Day of Christmas

I think after I have spent time tinkering in the kitchen with all my wonderful new gadgets I may need a lie down with a Glass of something and my Twilight book.  This would be the perfect relaxing chair to do so. I not sure were I'll get the tree to hang it from as were a bit short on the sturdy trees in our garden.
