Kirsty down the Co-op says that her six-year-old daughter only wants two things for Christmas, but she really, really wants them. Not for her a Cupcake Shop pop-up play tent or a Princess Pony pencil case, no. All she wants for Christmas is a yo-yo and a balloon. So sweet!
Then I was walking through the quiet village street on Thursday evening when a skinny little Santa came towards me. Full gear, you know: red suit, red hat, white fur trim. I couldn't work out whether it was a boy or girl, but I can tell you that a four foot high Nightmare Before Christmas Santa Jack with white face and blacked out eyes and mouth looks kinda cute in Nike Air Max walking past a chip shop.
And finally here's a song (nothing to do with Christmas) which is currently high on my playlist and this is an abstract moment after all.... but a synthpop version of a classic Bauhaus song for a teen vampire film soundtrack? I don't care! It makes me smile too.
Santa Jack always looks cute in my book... Merry Christmas :o)ReplyDelete
He's definitely a one-off, I'll give him that. Merry Christmas to you too, Yve!Delete
Kirsty should enjoy it while it lasts. This year a yo-yo and a balloon, next year an iPad and iPhone!ReplyDelete
I suspect you're right... or perhaps what Kirsty failed to tell us was that it's actually one of thos hi-tech designer yo-yos and a hot-air balloon...?Delete
Oddly, that's all I want for Christmas, too.ReplyDelete
No problem, I'll fly a balloon over with a yo-yo attached - judging by the winds outside it might just get to you in time :-)Delete
I suspect that the song may be significantly better than the film!ReplyDelete
Hi CC and thanks for dropping by.Delete
I have this sneaking suspicion that you may well be right!
