Last night I took Big Bird and my Mum to our local Christmas Bingo. Bingo has been really good for Big Bird,she has really come on well with her high numbers since we started to play. Don’t get me wrong we are not serious Bingo Players we go once a month to a local one,we heard about it through Big Birds school and she loves going. Last night was the Christmas Bingo so the prizes where extra good. Halfway through the night I looked at my mum and said “Its not going to be our night”then out of the blue I glanced down at Big Birds bingo card and saw she needed one number and before I had time to tell my mum 52 was drawn and me and Big Bird were shouting “BINGO”
Well Big Birds face was a picture,she was chuffed to bits with winning I took her to the front to pick a prize. They had 5 lovely hampers to choose from and I knew as soon as we walked up there which one she would pick. It had to be the one with the Thorntons big Chocolate Santa in it. She didn’t care about the rest of the stuff in it,it was all about the chocolate Santa.
The Hamper contained:
- Big Thorntons Chocolate Santa –For Big Bird who has promised to share it with her brother
- Bottle of wine –For Daddybird
- Tin of Shortbread –For Mummybird
- A Christmas Cake –Which we decided Nanny/My Mum could have,as she walked away with nothing!!!
As a treat for all the children last night they had one game of Bingo for all the children to play. It was a fab idea because one child won a big chocolate selection box and because it was Christmas they didn’t want to send any of the children home empty handed so they gave all the children in the room a smaller selection box. When we arrived home Big Bird couldn’t wait to show Daddybird what she had won and because Little Bird was in bed asleep she showed him in the morning with the promise she would share it all with him. Bless her they do love each other sometimes,it must be the Christmas spirit in the air.
