Very proud !





I know we have all heard that phrase 'proud Mummy' but today I was a very proud daughter.For nearly 30 years now my Dad has been taking Santa around our village in his vintage car which the local children call 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'. He has owned the car since I was a child and rebuilt it all himself.He always gets all stressed out worrying that the car will not perform or he will be late but he has always done it and today was no exception.I had arranged to go over and cook lunch while he was out and as I drove to his house I caught the car coming down the high street,Santa sitting in the back waving. He stops along the way at designated points and gives the children bags of sweets. I just came over all proud and emotional when he came down the road and I had to stop the car and take a photo.Here he is driving and then back at home relieved it was all over.

Such a lovely post Denise! I can imagine how emotional you felt seeing him coming down the road with Santa as a passenger. This calls for a double page layout of it's own!
