I love you Mamma!!! Happy Birthday!!!

Yesterday I went to see Santa again. This time at White Post Farm.

He was in an open white marque. A tent I suppose. Weird, Santas do not usually reside in tents.  Do you think that is because of Covid-19

It was an excellent experience, again. Another part of my Christmas Countdown and I loved meeting him, again.

But it gave rise to major concerns. And I know Cousin Ewan has been here in previous years. I mean this problem I am about to divulge, although I know he has been to White Post Farm.

He and Cousin Rory were at White Post Farm seeing Santa when we were. I know we are banned from seeing them, aren’t we,  due to lockdown, but I believe that was an accidental see. But it was brilliant to see them!

But back to my concerns. I saw Santa last week. All very nice and amicable. Told him my name, address and full detailed list of what I wanted this Christmas. Full chapter and verse. Job done. Sit around open the advent calendars and countdown the number of sleeps until he delivers. Not quite as good as Amazon Prime Free Next Day Delivery. But I do not mind, I guess it’s more exciting.

So, saw Santa again yesterday. Thought it was just a case of thumbs up: “Alright Santa, remember me from last week. My order progressing Ok is it?”

I expected the thumbs up back, “Hi George. Yes, all done, dusted and ready to drop off.”

But instead, shock, horrors, I had to go through it all again: Name, Address, and the full comprehensive list of things I wanted! Bugger!

He had not remembered me, or my name, or any thing on my list or even meeting me.

It makes you worry doesn’t it? You give Santa all this info. He never takes notes or writes anything down. He’s an old man like Grandad and doesn’t retain any of it, just like Grandad. It’s frightening that Santa can’t even remember you, each time you see him you have to tell him who you are all over again. He just never recognises you.

What are the chances going to be of Santa, therefore, leaving me anything I ask for off my list?

Zero, I think.

Oh well, keep on keeping on! just as long as I get something. I had a long chat with him. Iasked him when it was his birthday. He gave a strane answer. “When I finish work.” He said.

Do you know he never even gave us a gift. Most Santas do, but he didn’t. I suspect he forgot he’d got to give us one. Old men do forget. Grandad does alot.

Ok! Keep Driving Home For Christmas – I’m sure Santa will sort it. I think there is a Mrs Claus that will sort him, though. Like Mamma always sorts Grandad, know what I mean?

See you tomorrow.
