What’s that noise? Is it Santa coming down the chimney? Well, actually, at a little after 600am it’s two excited children scurrying down the stairs to find out what Father Christmas has brought, and a third now awakened by them and expecting to get fed.
Feeding duties done, it’s a case of throwing on a nightdress (!) Yes, really! It can be pretty chilly early in the mornings. I sleep nude (doesn’t everyone?) but there are mornings, such as this morning or weekends when I toss on a nightdress to keep me warm until the central heating properly kicks in.
