Last Saturday (Dec 7) was the christmas parade in central Wellington.
We learnt two things that day. Esme is a proper Batsford and gets MASS EXCITES about Christmas and Alfie is Kevin the teenager with numerous comments about being bored and wanting to go home.
After the parade everyone files over the bridge, alongside a group of lads tightrope (ok, ratchet strap) walking, to the park where they had a big stage and santa and songs and Christmas.
It was a lovely afternoon, even though doing it all in sunshine is very odd and hearing an antipodean santa singing just had me waiting for a rendition of Kevin Bloody Wilsons 'Hey, Santa Claus You C*nt'.
