Chopper Claus

We’ve just come back from yet another church fete (their hold on our social life is becoming rather noticeable) but this was one with a difference. For Father Christmas paid a visit, flying in by helicopter. Growing up in Leicestershire Santa would pitch up  on our street hitching a ride in a battered Mini Metro, so this was a change to say the least.

Needless to say Lawrence loved it, although not as much as the red fire truck that was there to entertain the kids (and fathers). But the best bit of all was the large muddy puddle that he managed to sniff out and jump into before I could stop him. He now resembles something out of the Somme, so I’m rather fortunate his mother has departed for the weekend…
