This year will be the first Cristmas that the kids are aware of. They are quite excited for obvious reasons - Santa and his gifts. Naisha's quite clear she wants a 'Barbie with a stick and a star' - a wand in normal parlance. I've resigned myself to her Barbie fixation. Hrit keeps vacillating between a tractor and a trolley, a guitar (when he saw one during carol practise), a badminton racket and God knows what else. I hope they're happy with the gifts 'santa' gets them. Am quite anxious actually.
