I'm posting and running because I really should be in bed... I AM TIRED!! I swear!
I've just been over at Lise's blog (http://howtobeadomesticdisgrace.blogspot.com/2011/12/when-cosy-traditions-go-bad.html) reading all about the decoration Rory has recently chosen for this Christmas... and it made me think of a decoration we have!
Look! He opens his freaky mouth up and nashes it up and down!!!
Does anyone else have one of these Nutcrackesque soliders among the ranks of their Christmas Decorations? Or any other scary/weird decorations that come out every year?
Oh... I just thought.. If you really want to see scary/weird/traditional then you need to see this. I made this little beauty when I was about 2 or 3 I think, so it must be at least 26 years old. And yet, somehow it still exists and I found it hanging around in one of my boxes of Christmas decorations so I've got it out and photographed it just for you to enjoy! Behold, loo roll Santa!
He's quite old now so his cotton wool beard has disappeared... Poor sod. I guess that's what too many Christmas sherries will do to you! I like the fact there is also a Gateway sticker/label attached to his feet... that supermarket doesn't even exist any more!!!
Ho ho ho and happy weekend to you all. I'm off to sit in the bath water my son peed in and got out of over 5 hours ago. I may add some hot water. See how indulgent I feel.
