So, today's the children's Christmas Party. It's hard work, and great fun, all at the same time. And even though we may mumble and grumble and say never again... We've already asked the DJ to come back next year. We only had the one turn up, phew! And he never turned up till ten minutes before the party was due to start - and then took half an hour to set up! Luckily not too many people turned up that early!
The party seemed to go well, we had plenty of thank yous and hugs. And Father Christmas turned up and gave all of the children a present, as they'd ALL been good this year! We set up a little "grotto" in the corner of the hall for Father Christmas, which he seemed to enjoy, even though it tried to fall down on him... And, yes, my decision about the tacky seventies style Christmas lights was right, they looked the part in our grotto.
