George Aged 4 – Countdown to Christmas Blog – 2 sleeps to Christmas.
Can you believe that in my long drawn out driving home for Christmas there is now just 2 sleeps to go to get me home for Christmas.
What I should have done is started my drive home for Christmas on 1st December and travelled to a destination closer to home each day until Christmas Day 25th December. That would be a real true adventurous driving home for Christmas. The real spirit of Driving Home for Christmas.

Welcome to Santa’s grotto, little fishes, please come in, and meet the real-life Santa Klaus, It’s really, really him!
Deep beneath the shimmering blue sea, it’s almost Christmas Eve, and Shelly the shark is VERY excited. She puts on her Santa suit and turns her cave into a festive Christmas grotto. Then she waits for all the little fishes to come in. They seem strangely reluctant . . . But Sid the squid thinks all his Christmases have come at once! Will Sid get taken in by Shark’s Santa disguise – or will he be in for a big surprise?
A hilarious underwater Christmas romp from the creators of Mince Spies.
