Is it just me or is Santa on a bit of a go slow this year? I am sure that he's been in Italy round about 8.30 or 9.00 in previous years but he's only just stopped off in Rome.
We are ready for him now and Anna is just waiting her instruction to go to bed from the trackers.
We have left a bottle of water and some home made mince pies and cheese for Santa and some special food for the reindeer, made by crushing weetabix with little glittery stars. I wonder what Nigella would make of that.
She has also warned little Powder Puff, her hamster, that she may be disturbed tonight when Santa comes to call.
It looks like my poor husband is coming down with a horrid lurgy, which is all a bit too much deja vu from last year.
