Ooohh thankyou,thankyou I would like to thank my Mother for giving birth to me, my father for having the decency to leave before I inherited his lack of christmas style,my darling children for the tireless effort they put into erecting and destroying the Christmas tree and Baby Jesus for being born thus allowing me one day of the year where I have qualified for a prize. I thank you all for voting for me <oscar winning sobbing>
Please donate my choccie winnings Santasmissy as I am on a blardy diet (at piggin Christmas) and if it comes through my door I will shamelessly scoff it all and maybe nip a bit off the postmans finger as he gingerly pushes it through. Thanks again,it was a fab little comp
Congrats to everyone as all the trees look fabulous and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas
Well even though I didn't win I enjoyed taking part! And my tree was looked at far more than I thought - we were expecting to go to my sister's in Aberystwyth for Christmas, but my dad (elderly, Alzheimers in care home) died on 22nd, so sister has gone to Mum in Kent, other sister and dp (who were also going to aberystwyth) have come to us. I have had to arrange Christmas here in 3 days - but we have had full Christmas dinner etc, and the tree has been well looked at. Am just a bit sad as when I was a kid my Dad would have been the one putting the (same) lights on it. They originally belonged to his aunt I think. Anyway they bring back good memories for me, but also slightly sad now.
Am hoping my 7 year old ds will have similar memories in the future.
