Do you like my little owl?
I bought him from Marks and Spencer this morning. I couldn't not. Look at that little flat face.
Blondie Daughter (just turned 10) is "not sure whether or not" she believes in Father Christmas. "Well, if you don't mind, I shall keep leaving him a mince pie and glass of Baileys" I say, "because I absolutely do." She really, really wants to believe but her friends keep telling her otherwise. Big displays in shops emblazoned with 'Stocking Filler' signs don't help my cause. Just a thought.
