Since arriving in Australia we have lost many of our small family traditions such as the annual trip to see Santa in Milton Keynes shopping center. We are about to have our third Christmas here in Oz and have started a few new family traditions.
After a coffee and ice cream we walked to David Jones and queued for about 1 1/2 hours to see the big red man! We were suffering severe caffeine lows as we stood in the long queue. There was a mum standing near us with a take away cup of coffee in her hand. The smell of the coffee wafting towards us was so tempting and it was all I could do to stop Mr B from vaulting over the barrier and snatching the cup from her hand!
He started dipping his fingers in my glass of water and grinning. He knew he was up to no good. When we laughed and said "No" in a very non-assertive voice he got more daring and within minutes we were all soaked!
