19   EWAN’S ADVENT MESSAGE: I’m beginning to question the genuiness of this guy, Santa or Father Christmas. First we visit a toy shop and Dad buys stuff and says it has to go to Santa. Like when presents come from Santa other people have to buy them then he gives them to you. The big meannie. And my dad allows that. He surprises me. I thought he was made of smarter stuff than that.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 teeny tiny bit of chocolate. Bah, humbug.

20  GEORGE’S ADVENT MESSAGE: If babies as young as seven months old had memories I would be sitting here living in the past thinking what a great time I was having this time last year with a holiday, not just a holiday but a Christmas holiday with all the trimmings at Centre Parks. Really loving it. As I didn’t have a memory, unfortunately it is still S*** thinking I probably was there enjoying my Mum’s maternity leave. No such fun this year, pure hard work, for me at nursery whilst Mum and Dad are off having time of their life at work revelling in the Christmas spirit.Roll on Easter
