WHEN SANTA GOT STUCK UP ......... A ROPE?

Dear Friends,

I know that most of you think that I only put in an appearance once a year but I'm afraid to say that the recession has hit us hard here at the North Pole and as well as Mother Christmas having to take in washing, the elves are having to sweep chimneys (not a bad thing when you consider there's less soot on my back, my beard is no longer as black and my nose is no longer tickling) and I'm having to moonlight as a store Santa.

Normally a job left to men who once a year don a red suit and false beard, this year you may well have sat on the knee, whispered in the ear of the real Father Christmas - no bad thing given the antics of this poor soul who far from getting stuck up the chimney, hoh, hoh, hoh, managed to get stuck up a rope.



My love to you all whether you have been good or bad, naughty or nice,

I'm glad St. Nick was able to land! I'd hate to have disappointed all the children.
