Out into the extremely mild night WITH NOT A SOUL IN SIGHT. Never seen the joint so empty of people!
So now we sit up in bed waiting for the children to hop up and rush to the tree to see if Santa has truly made it down the chimney with arms full of presents. The test will be to see if the carrots we left out for the reindeer have been eaten. I know you think that this is a flight of fancy on my part, but believe me that it is all as I relate. Right down to the Christmas tree with fairy lights. The thing is, you see, that the whole Rose family are Christmas FREAKS - led more than ably by Stephanie and Ally. Should be a great day when they hop up. Very sad that Dear Georgia is not here to complete the Christmas picture ...
I'll let you know what transpires.
