To Saint Nick, we’re just saying no…

Post cricket subjection and pre dinner, Greg’s Mum switched over to Carols By Candlelight and laughingly commented that I was CLEARLY not a fan of the Wiggles and their Christmas exploits. Shuddering, I confirmed that I was clearly not and that I would definitely NOT be subjecting their future grandkids to such a fate.

Amused, she remarked that that was what Grandparents were for, though her mood changed and she sat aghast when I mentioned not teaching these theoretical children about Santa either.

This afternoon, whilst drowning in masses of dried cranberries and fruit cake mixture I idly began wondering about the ‘to Santa or not to Santa’ question. When I was a child, unless I knew the person under the suit, I thought Santa was a massive pedophile and was… Not a fan, shall we say, of climbing into a strange man’s lap.

And then this evening I came across THIS little gem from the bowels of the internet:

Crack head Santa: So Supernatural it hurts. From Alberts EYE @ flickr

Crack head Santa: So Supernatural it hurts. From Albert's EYE @ flickr

Decision made. Operation: Aggressively refrain from teaching conjectured kids that Santa exists? Engaged.

Funky Fabrix – Patterns for drooling upon

AUGH FUNKY FABRIX! Why you gotta tease me so, with your pages upon pages of fabulous patternry? And why do you have to be IN AUSTRALIA so that your shipping is not ludicrous and your prices need not be converted. At least when I hit up Reprodepot, Fabric Tales or Super Buzzy they have the decency to not spell their name in an obnoxious fashion, and put enough detractors in that I can more easily talk myself out of purchases.

Well, slightly more easily. Just. In a sit-on-your-hands kind of fashion…

BUT NO, Funky Fabrix have the audacity to be for all intents and purposes: LOCAL. The cheek! xD

1. Kokka – Dala Horses Red 2. Russian Nesting Dolls & Daisies Brown 3. Large Whimsy Doozie Brown 4. Pet Deer Brown 5. Moorish Blooms Aqua 6. Garden Party – Chocolate Damask

I can’t work out if the Moorish Blooms are a historical iconography nod, or if they’re just called that because YOU WANT MOOOOORE!
