Surprise, surprise!


No matter, like everything else, the problem of the holey socks passed with the night, and Santa, in his usual cheery way, made sure that all the presents were placed under the Christmas trees for the children, their parents and friends. Once done, he turned for home, tired but happy that the trip had gone extremely well, the earlier debacle notwithstanding, and crept quietly upstairs to do one last thing, deliver presents to his two grandchildren.
Imagine his shock and surprise when he went into their bedroom to fill their Christmas stockings, and found, hanging off the mantlepiece, the nice new pair he’d bought specially, and laid out for the trip he’d just finished!
