An Optimistic Christmas 1976

They say you know your child very early on, their character, their nature, I didn’t but in hindsight I do, optimism and positive vibes should always be encouraged when seen.

Many many years ago, it was Christmas time, hubby and I had scrimped and saved for bicycles, for our two boys.

We decided to leave them downstairs by the tree, next morning our bedroom door burst open and there was Stephen and Jonathon at the end of our bed.

Stephen said excitedly,

“Father Xmas has been, he hasn’t left us any toys, but he has left us a very nice orange in our sock”.

Oh dear sweet boy. All was well when we went downstairs of course, but that was a positive attitude, even then, he was six years old.

Merry Christmas Love Pammy!
