SCENE: The kids end-of-year Christmas party starring Mr G as Santa. Scrag quivers with fear and clings to his mummy, refusing to go anywhere near The Bearded One.
HEARD: "Mummy Santa Claus got my daddy's shoes...!"
I could not believe my ears. From a distance Scrag spotted his daddy's shoes on Santa's feet and accused Santa of stealing them!
SCENE: Teacher thankyou gifts, last day of school. Look at our pretty boxes. Don't they look expensive?
Oops. Looks like I've overdone it on the gift-buying again. He would have been happy with $20 bucks worth of the latest school fad gears and a whole lotta peace and love.
