1 a.m.I jump on Daddy Richard’s head and shout: “IT’S CHRISTMAS!”
Santa has BEEN!
Evidence #1: sticky bun is GONE!
Evidence #2: knock out drops in sherry mean Daddy Richard is slumped beside large pile of presents. I KNEW Father Christmas would not drink and drive!
“Wurgle!” says daddy. “Go back to bed, Millennium! It’s too early to be Christmas!”
Bother! Forgot to consider side effects of knock out drops.
2 a.m.I jump on Daddy Richard’s head and shout “IT’S CHRISTMAS!”
See 1 a.m.
...except an elephant
3 a.m.Manage to drag Daddy Richard to shower and stick his head under for five minutes.
When he splutters to consciousness he is VERY UN-CHRISTMASY. May have to consider NOT giving him present this year.
4 a.m.Find note sticky-taped to Daddy Richard’s head. It reads:
“Dear Millennium, let your daddy sleep, love from Father Christmas.”
Must think about this.
4.10 a.m.Find second note sticky-taped to Daddy’s head.
“I meant for more than 10 minutes. F.C.”
Handwriting suspiciously like Daddy Alex’s – I will keep this for analysis later.
5 a.m.I jump on Daddy Richard’s head and shout: “IT’S CHRISTMAS!”
Am surprised to discover that it is in fact just a load of pillows!
Daddy sleeping on balcony. He has turned blue. Decide to warm him up. Make him nice cup of tea and pour it over him. Daddy VERY GRATEFUL!
6 a.m.I jump on Daddy Richard’s head and shout: “IT’S CHRISTMAS!”
“Yes, Millennium, indeed it is,” he says. “Shall we go and see…”
There's a QUOTE from Mr Billy as Dr Who that is appropriate for today... but I cannot remember what it is!
Now GO AND WATCH "The Runaway Bride" on DOCTOR WHO!
