Like when presents come from Santa other people have to buy them then he gives them to you. The big meannie. Annd my dad allows that. He surprises me. Then we went to Rufford Park Santa trail. Instructions:   Santa and his elves are celebrating the 12 days of Christmas at the North Pole, but as they came through the park they lost all their directions. Following clues, find your way through the park to the mill and collect your reward. What had he left, for all this effort, a fantastic Twirlywoo toy? No, one bit of chocolate.

When I was a lad at school around 13 years old, our Maths teacher used to call me Wol. At the end of the year as we were moving up a class I plucked up courage to ask why he called me Wol. He told meit was thename of the deslexic owl in Winnie the Pooh. With my Harry Potter glasses he said I looked like the Wise Old Owl in the Winnie the Pooh stories.


Being the vain person I am I took it as a compliment
