George Aged 4 – Countdown to Christmas Blog – 15 sleeps to Christmas.
Hi George, here: “I sing this song, To pass the time away, Driving in my car, Christmas, It’s gonna take some time but I’ll get there… Driving Home For Christmas”. They’re words from the Christmas Song ‘Driving Home For Christmas’.
I went to the toilet this morning and there was no toilet paper. I thought, “Funny. It’s fortunate my bum does not need wiping. I guess the Tesco man’s due to deliver tonight. I am switched on enough to know that pandemics cause shortages of toilet paper.
I walked into the lounge and realised what had happened. There was loads of the toilet rolls all rolled out and in massive heaps around the Lounge. During the night, our two Elves on the Shelf had messed with our toilet rolls and spread them everywhere.
They are so very, very, mischievous. They are unbelievably naughty!
What I can’t understand is Mum and Dad seem to just go with the mess they make.
Four and a half years of life experiences have taught me, when it comes to messing with toilet rolls, you just don’t go there. In pandemic times they are such a limited and valuable resource.
Those elves will get their comeuppance, probably after me and Sister Freya have gone to school. I suspect Mum will tell them to pack their cases and hoppit.
You should have seen me yesterday a real “bobby-dazzler” going to school dressed up to my eyes in my Christmas jumper. I looked so cool, even I thought I could not look more Christmassy Cool.
Yes, another big marker in my Countdown to Christmas. I had to look good and be all set for my Christmas Song recording at school.
Now keep calm please. Don’t get all over excited like Grandad did. He thought I was recording a Christmas record to become Christmas No.1 on the Christmas Charts. We had to scrape him off the ceiling. He said I would never have to work in my life as the royalties from the recording I would receive every Christmas would keep me in Harribos (my favourite sweets) for the rest of my life and it would finance my living expense and all my needs.
After I had calmed him down I got him to understand that we were recording some Christmas songs on to the internet at school for a few of our parents to enjoy. The income from it would not even be enough to buy me a Tunnocks Penny Tea Cake.
I think we are singing ‘Wiggly Nativity’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’
In “Wiggly Nativity” there are 10 songs:
1) A Wriggly Nativity
2) Donkey Plodding
3) Knock On Another Door
4) Rockabye Jesus
5) Dancing About In The Straw
6) Twinkling Stars
7) Skip Skip Skippity Hop
9) Bumping Up And Down On A Camel
10) A Wriggly Nativity (Reprise)
I’m a bit disappointed there’s no “When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney” or “Santa Clause Is Coming To Town”, or “Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer”. And of course the biggest disappointment is that “Driving Home For Christmas” is not in it.
But I guess we can’t have everything we want, not even at Christmas.
So, wish me luck on that one or is it break a leg, that the theatricals say. As I think about it I do not know whether to call it a recording, a show, a nativity, a Christmas Concert or a Pantomime.
I guess it will end up a Pantomime if me and my mates have our way. Oh yes it will…
See you tomorrow!
