Advent – Day 2

Merry Christmas image – from the collection of Julie Goucher, 2021

I know I visited Santa as a child because Mum told me. I didn’t think to ask where I saw Santa or how much it cost, because I always thought I had plenty of time to ask her.

Mum did tell me that I was fairly unimpressed and sat there waiting to go back to Mum. It is interesting that is pretty much how I have always felt about Christmas & since Mum’s passing I feel even less enthused. Being married to a Christmas baby makes that tricky, but at least one of us is excited!

I get my enjoyment from make a list of what I think I will buy for my significant other and managing to keep it a secret! He has been known to get down by the tree and shake all the presents!

Hubby on the other hand was never taken to see Santa and for that I feel quite sad, especially since he would have really enjoyed that.
