A warm up to the festive season.

SantaDear family and friends,Chimney Santa IT'S ME!!!!!!

As you can see, Christmas is approaching really fast, so I thought I'd give you this one to be getting on with.
What will YOU be giving the guy who slides down your chimney this year? A big kiss? Really....really, Rob and Roy, Brent and Serge, I wasn't aware that you had such preferences.
That Anna would be waiting at the bottom of the chimney to violate him was clear, and Tim was looking forward to having a couple of hours off-duty, but Santa's chestnuts got roasted, and that was the end of that!
Janet was upset, because she thought it would be a young guy in disguise, but on coming down the chimney, she had been able to have a quick look at his stomach, and realised that Santa was no dream guy!
Ruth and Brent ain't got no time to bother with fairy tales like Santa, but Roy spent all the week up till now, on bended knees, praying finally for that clockwork train set Santa had promised 65 years ago!
Rob went off for a spin on his new motorbike, thinking that being Dutch, Santa had already passed by their chimney on the 7th December. He had, but crafty old Santa had noticed Winifred, and had sneaked back on the 24th whilst Rob was out on his bike! The two daughters were out skating over a frozen dyke somewhere, so a ball of a time was had by all!Reindeer
Serge and Martine, together with Elodie, heard the noise of Santa's sleighs outside, in their mountain village home, and Serge very kindly opend the chimney grating as wide as possible. He couldn't know that it wasn't Santa coming, but an avalanche. We're still digging!
Brian and Joan, together with Helen and Big and little Ben stayed up late, at least they wanted too, but Helen fell asleep around 1930pm which was contagious. When Helen woke up, around 10pm, she muttered something about "silly old buggar won't come anyway - I'm going to bed" and off she went, leaving mum and dad wondering what the younger generations were coming to, and called up the chimney to Santa - "B----- off you silly old clot, we're all in bed. Come earlier next year!"
Only Jan - marquis du Galipot, stayed firmly at his post. Apparantly he's been having an affair with Santa for years, according to the foul-mouthed rumour makers, who are jealous that Jan always gets one bar of chocolate more, every year!Santa
I had to finish off with that one, 'cos this is a fairy tale!

Have a nice time anyway-clean the chimney out now (think about Santa's piles) and over eat and drink as usual.
Santa's SleighHappy Christmas to ya!
