Its nearly here the Christmas Wonderland time.
I thought I’d give you my story of believing in Father Christmas.
Yes Father Christmas!😄
**Well, what can I say…. I loved Christmas time, They were pretty cold if I could remember right, no double glazing for us. Single panes and some where loose. Yes there were gaps where the putty had fallen out ,*** i remember the glass rattling in the wind. The house and gardens where in a bit of a poor state of repair so I remember. Once a year the grass got cut by one of the local farm labourers. It was the tallest grass and patch of weeds I’d ever seen. My Mum was the only parent we had living at home since my Dad left home when I was 6 years old. Hey ho , memories hey… We lived in a fairly large semi detached house or it seemed to feel like a very large one at the time to a small boy. It was also a scary place to try and sleep in especially if I’d been left in at night alone in a darkened house with only my younger brother in my room and my sister with her learning disabilities in her own locked bedroom. My mum had to keep her locked in her room as she was fairly wild and would run away at any given time.
Yes I remember one particular night calling to our next door neighbours ‘ George & Mary’s because I heard noises, it turned out that when the neighbour came back the house with me, something had fallen of the window sill in the separate toilet room were by the window was open..It was still creepy .
Back to Christmas,
Christmas is wonderful for children and for adults too but it massively changed for me when I learned there was NO Father Christmas.
Hells bells how could my Mum lie to me like this.??.😄😂
All those Christmas meals I use to create with My Mum , we use to bake for hours making mince pies and sandwiches.Having flour and pastry everywhere even on my nose haha. The lavish spread laid out , don’t forget the the glass of Sherry too for Santa and milk his Bloody Reindeers ! Sorry .. I wasn’t impressed when I learnt there was No Santa..😂
So everyone I knew , told me this story of make believe. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it while it lasted 😄. Christmas’s now I generally do like them , this year I’m waiting for the magic dust to fall It’s getting there .. erm maybe I’ve got to just Believe!. Or once the Christmas tree goes up it might be different 👍👍🌟😄.
I’ve had some presents in my mind and I’ve ordered a couple but they haven’t landed yet. If they land after Christmas , so be it. I guess it’s the thought that counts 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄.
Loving you all
I have some really Golden memories of my mum and that’s great..I do miss her, never mind life goes on and I’m trying to make my magical mark in life ..
Hope your time coming up to Christmas is fantastic 🌟👍😘, it’s the best part I reckon .
Loving you all.
Hugs and glitter 😄✨✨✨✨
