    At my house anyway. One minute to midnight and my children aren't asleep yet. When will Father Christmas be able to fill the stockings?

    Honestly, I'm knackered, need to go to bed and don't want to play this game tonight:mad:

    Your best bet is to tell them the truth now, get some sleep and wash their sobs out of their pillows in the morning.

    Sadly, father Christmas was stopped at Dover and fined for the 9 illegals pulling his sled (the reindeer!)...

    They already know but are still young and selfish enough to want to go along with the game. I'm not doing it next year!

    I've got to be up early to get a giant turkey in the oven too:(.

    My sympathies...it could be worse you could be listening to the drunken, snoring lump on my sofa

    Well I'm about to become a snoring lump in my bed. The deed has been done but the stockings are on doorknobs this year.

    Make 'em wait until AFTER Christmas dinner before they can open their pressies....that'll learn 'em :D

    I trust it was one you bought this afternoon when they were knocking them out at half price in Tesco, yet still had more than enough left over to be flogging thirty quid turkeys for less than a fiver when they re-open on Sunday.

    What's it all about?

    I bet they'll be up in a couple of hours.

    You weren't far wrong :). Still, it's now blissfully quiet as they're happily examining their haul so I can sit here and up my caffeine intake for a few minutes.

    Ah the joys of being old
    I went to bed when I liked
    Got up when I wanted to and could have a sane and relaxed intake of caffeine.
    I'm not even going to have to start cooking for another couple of hours

    Nobody looking at your own threads so you have to hijack another?

    Merry Christmas - our toddler slept in but I think next year will be a different story!
