Eloise’s stocking cost about £21 and Lily’s cost about £5. I didn’t put much in Lily’s at all mainly because she is 23 months old and couldn’t give a shit about Christmas. We have had family over the past few days and she wouldn’t open even one of her presents. Eloise has a game in hers which bumped the total of hers up a lot, but she has wanted this game for a while and asked Father Christmas for it which he found for £14 in Game (he only paid £10 because he borrowed some money off Ben’s game card). The Moana DVD is second hand so cost a couple of quid.
As for Christmas Eve boxes, I do like to put together a little box with a film, book, reindeer food and some hot chocolate in but with moving house I just didn’t get round to it so they had a Lush bath instead which was filled with glitter and now my bath looks like a unicorn has shat in it.
They have left Father Christmas an Aldi Spiced Salted Caramel Mince Pie, a regular sized carrot and a micro carrot along with a glass of milk (although I’m sure he would have preferred something a little stronger). Their stockings are waiting on the end of their beds. Well, I say stockings, Eloise has a stocking. Lily has a creepy retro elf thing that used to be Ben’s, with pockets down the front of his trousers and also an arse pocket. You literally have to reach into his pants to get the presents out. Weird.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
