Christmas is coming...

A temporary diversion from writing and transport problems because of the snow and ice.

This time every year I turn into a big kid again (temporarily) when the countdown to Santa begins (yes I know I'm a grown-up and I know the man in the big red suit doesn't really exist but it's better than moaning about all the miserable stuff. I'm a writer so imagination is allowed :) ).

So here's a link to put you in the Christmas spirit, NORAD Tracks Santa. You can click on the page for Santa's village- an alternative advent calendar...Hover your mouse over the building of the day and it will light up and the banner at the top will tell you what the building is. Click on it and a puzzle of some sort will come up- simple enough for a child to do and accompanied by Christmas music, probably courtesy of North Pole Radio at number 4...

Back to normality soon...


  1. I love the NORAD site. I've followed it for many a year!

  2. Yes, it is a regular joy for my year too.:)

  3. I have to confess I've never been on the NORAD site...until today.

    Sod work, I need to be sure Santa's ready for his 'flight'!

  4. I spent Christmas Eve two years ago following Santa via Norad as he flew around the world, Monkeynuts, so I don't think you have any worries. Enjoy the Norad site. :-)
