The geekdaughter is very shy of Father Christmas. The few times she’s met him so far, she has tended to hide herself and refuse to look at him. This year she got very worried about him coming into her bedroom whilst she was asleep, so I told her he would go to wherever her stocking was. She decided that she would prefer her stocking to be in the lounge, rather than her bedroom. So before she went to bed she helped me set everything up.
When I asked her what we should leave out for Father Christmas she was very definite that we should leave him a Christmas cracker. And a carrot for Rudolph. I added the little drop of whiskey, as the dear old man needs something to keep him going, doesn’t he?
So we’re all ready for Santa. I just hope he does bring her the new bike she’s been asking for. Or else there’s going to be trouble…!
