Santa woz 'ere

We left him a glass of milk, a mince pie and some carrots for the reindeer:

Then 5.30am saw the poor baby being gently but determinedly woken by her sisters, to see if he had been:

And he had! I'm always amazed that the reindeer leave the carrot tops behind. Fussy creatures, they must be.

Well, some people opened their gifts very slowly and wonderingly savoured each one:

Whilst others rushed through theirs frantically, shaking with excitement:

Then there were new toys to play with...

Potions to make...

Disks to install...

and battleships to bomb:

I was hoping for a new camera, but is seems that Santa thinks my old one will have to do, for now. Very wise of him, no doubt. Ah well, there's always next year. Ho ho ho!

I think that disk installing picture is one of the most lovely Christmas pictures I've seen on any blog. Glad you've been having fun.

Ditto to Allie - your family Xmas snaps exude something very precious indeed.

Oh thanks Allie! Yes, it was a special moment, though it seems there's always someone leaning over her, making the PC bend to her will these days! ;-)

Thanks Merry. You're very kind to say so.

I like the disk installing picture. It reminds me of Christmas 1989 when I was loading the computer game Shinobi on my Amstrad CPC 6128. Shinobi came on a very strange looking 3 inch disk that had to be inserted into the disk drive every time you wanted to play it because, like most home computers of the era, the Amstrad CPC 6128 didn't have a hard drive.

Thanks all :-)

Huge congratulations to you Paula - the photos looked lovely. I would have commented there but this felt like the wrong language in which to do so! xx
