On Sunday, 21st December (seem’s like ages ago) we took the boys on the Santa Cruise at Ratho Canal.
Amazingly, Jack remembered going last year and even showed us where he sat previously.
To be honest, it was much the same as last year. The cartoons on the way up the canal were the same, outdated ones (Rosie and Jim — what child now knows who Rosie and Jim are!) and Jack got very bored declaring that it was taking
too long. Which was pretty much how Ed and I were feeling.
When Santa did arrive, it was the exact same jokes and routine as last year, same manky Santa suit and just a bit old and tired. To be honest, Jack appeared to enjoy his very short Santa visit at his nursery party to this one.
Jack did, however, get a certificate from Santa for best boy singer on the boat which he was really pleased with.
After, we went down to the Ratho Park for our Sunday dinner, little did we know it was the only Christmas dinner we were going to have this year as Christmas day was a complete write off food wise!
So in summary — the Santa Cruise was pants (as verified by Jack!)
