There are lots of Christmas lights glowing in the night of our neighbourhood.....just asking to be admired and just itching to inspire the imaginations and feed the excitement of the season for the little ones.
So with dinner enjoyed and little bodies bathed and clad in cosy pyjama's we eagerly wait....for the sun to dim, just enough, to set off on our starlit adventure....out into the warm night to find the next lot of lights and glowing houses we haven't yet seen.
We walk far with much pointing and little cries of "Sanar" (Santa) and "pitty" (pretty) ... and bigger cries of "look Mum over here" and....."I don't want to go home".
Oh there is enough for plenty more night time sauntering yet.
And just now, tonight, two little bodies have curled into bed and drifted easily off into sleep....I wonder what colours they are dreaming of?
