Following an extremely busy day, the kids and I ventured out on what became a ‘Santa hunt’. Whilst Santa would usually make a visit to our house, this year we were a little preoccupied with dance rehearsals, hair appointments, shopping sprees and all kinds of crazy capers. After finally finishing for the day, we then hopped into the Mini and had our very own adventure hunting for Santa. There was absoloutly no way on this Earth that I letting my little ones miss out on a visit from the big man.
After following Santa’s usual route we eventually came across his sleigh, it was pretty hard to miss given that it gave Blackpool illuminations a run for it’s money, that and the Christmas music (which was blaring incredibly loudly from his sleigh) was a bit of a give away.
After parking up on a random pavement, the kids swiftly unbuckled their belts and made their way to the sleigh whilst jumping with glee. It doesn’t matter how old you may be, there is something rather magical about meeting Santa, even if you should happen to know Santa on a personal basis. We made sure to fill the collection buckets with plenty of change and were given lollipops and photo opportunities in return. The kids had a fabulous five minutes with Santa and it was well worth the effort. Having collected my bumper copy of the Radio Times and having seen Santa I am officially ready for Christmas.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
