16   EWAN'S ADVENT MESSAGE:       Due to all the excitement mum and brother Rory whipped up about yesterday being an exciting day Christmaswise I thought it was Christmas Day. But Santa left me no presents. I was guttered. Grandad had told me many times about the little boy Santa forgot. I sat at the bottom of the stairs all gloomy as mum and dad got us ready for nursery. Then at nursery everything changed. It was Christmas. There were my favourite loads of balloons. Millions and millions. There were lots of LED coloured lights too. There was music and lots of food and jelly. And more music and games and loads of LED lights and more balloons and Santa did come and bring me a present. A…MAZING So this is Christmas. The morning no presents show was just a wind up. But then I learnt this was not Christmas Day at all. Just Nursery Christmas Party Day. Wow! If that is so how exciting will Christmas Day be?                        

17   GEORGE'S ADVENT MESSAGE:         We are still on this Christmas holiday thing at Centre Parks. I am still chilling, that’s all there is to do really. Me and Cousin Fin (don’t know whether Aunty Jayne and Uncle Steve approve of me calling him that), just chill together. Sister Freya loves it with so much for her to do. I’m jealous. Had a swim. That was cool. Well, no the water was warm, but you know what I mean. Then I met Santa for the first time. What a weird bloke he is. Very extravert in a red suit and big bushy beard. Best be careful what I say, though, I’ve heard it rumoured he’s omnipotent and sensitive, so if you upset him he leaves you nothing. He gave me a taster pressy. I just hope he does a bit better on the day.

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
