19           EWAN’S ADVENT MESSAGE:

Christmas has been put on hold in our house this weekend because Mum went away to celebrate Fairy Godmother Becky getting old. Why is it that when it is mine or Brother Rory’s birthday we are given a 2 hour party but if its Mum or her friends they get a two day holiday to celebrate their birthday. Anyway, whatever, Christmas appears to be on hold in our house.

 

20           GEORGE’S ADVENT MESSAGE:

I was thinking:

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Ev’rywhere you go;

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Toys in ev’ry store

But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be

On your own front door.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Ev’rywhere you go;

There’s a tree next to our telly, with one in the park as welly,

The sturdy kind that doesn’t mind the snow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas;

 

Wow! I think I just wrote a Christmas song. But I’m so excited. We’ve put up our Christmas Tree. Well Mum and Sister Freya have. There was a restriction order on my. My access to the tree has been restricted. There are some amazing things hung on it. This needs a carefully thought out strategy.
