Ho Ho Ho...Santa is Busy

28 comments


Well, I’ve been incredibly busy this November/December with my Santa bookings.
And, I’ve been flying all over the place.Lots of company doos, Family parties, restaurants, , hotels etc etc….Tomorrow morning I have to be in Belvedere(South East London/Kent ) by 8 am to visit a little girl and take her to school with mum and dad! That could be interesting!
But, what a smashing charity job I did today…..elderly people from sheltered housing complexes had a Christmas lunch arranged by a couple of Companies’ Basildon Branches and Age Matters. What a great time Santa had. lots of Dancing singing…..jokes etc.Oh, not to mention a few pinches of Santas bottom!! In all the family events I’ve done this year, that hasn’t happened once’ but,I certainly had to keep an eye on these elderly ladies !
But, it was great fun and I got much more pleasure doing that ‘freebie’ for charity than any of the jobs that pay(although it comes in handy)
Here are som pics of Santa on his rounds this year! None of today’s event though.
Please don’t forget to leave a carrot or parsnip out for the Reindeer….they get very hungry pulling that heavy sleigh, you know!!
Oh, and maybe a mince pie or 3 for Santa!

Ho Ho Ho…..Merry Christmas to you all !
From
Santa Paul

You look the part and very obviously take the job seriously.
Who will look after your garden when you return to Lapland after Christmas.!!

Oh,Santa..how lovely you look ! and I love the little girl enjoying the magic of it all..:o) The Reindeers are looking well fed,and ready for the off soon..So glad you enjoyed the day as much as those bottom pinching ladies..Age is no deterrent for a naughty twinkling of the eye,Paul :o) I've added this to Favourites ..Wishing you and your Family a wonderful Christmas in your new home..:o)

Ha ha....yes, I'm on my guard for O A P inchers !
Oh, I won't be able to go back to Lapland Brian.....too much to do in my new garden! Starting straight after Christmas with some hugely overgrown shrubs right next to the house which need cutting down/grubbing out so I can put a shed on the area. The current shed which is falling down is in the sunniest spot of the garden so a real waste.
Thanks Bloomer....that was a nice booking but a long watch to go...All the way to Porchester near Portsmouth(approx 125 miles)

Santa, what a smart suit you have! I so like the pictures with the reindeer.

What a really lovely thing to do at Christmas and I am sure the children leave you with very happy smiles.

Merry Christmas Paul and I hope that the 'other' Father Christmas is good to you too!

Excellent Paul' you make a great Santa and its so nice to see the bag of carrots. If you will call at our house your reindeer shall have as many as they can eat.

Thanks very much Sandra, Karen,Steragram,Wildrose,Tt, Seaburn,Bathgate and Tt.
Yes, I thoroughly enjoy it although lots of travelling this year.yes, do remind your young family members to leave a carrot or any root vegetable out for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet ,Cupid, Donner, Blitzen...not forgetting Rudolph of course.It's very big job we have on 24th you know!!
The beard is real hair(Yak)
It's not only the children who raise a smile, it's so lovely to see the mums, Nan's, dads, grandad's faces too, when Santa speaks to the children and shows them the key to the Elves' workshop(We make most of the toys, you know, although, we do have to source some in from China!
I don't think Santa would risk a trip with a coachful of OAPs 3d.

I always leave a carrot, a mince pie and a glass of sherry for Santa and the Reindeer Paul!

And two lovely pictures given to santa!

Hello Santa Paul Merry Christmas you really do look lovely.

My Husband has now got a lovely white beard but not as long as yours.

Say hello to Rudolph from me.

19 Dec, 2014

 

I said hello to Rudolph SK, but he couldn't reply as he was munching on a carrot!
Well, my lovely white beard comes off!! I think it would itch too much to have it permanently

19 Dec, 2014

 

Wow ... what a lovely Santa you are Paul! Here's wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas. :o)))
