Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

I haven't written to you in a really really long time but this year I have a very special request. I am desperate.  I have not been able to find what I want anywhere and I need some help.

Please, please, please, please can I have some jeans that fit? You know - those ones that stay up without a belt and super glue and don't regularly fall down showing your arse to the whole world.

I don't think it's much to ask and I have been a (fairly) good girl this year and well I don't really want to trouble Him Upstairs. Cos the chance is he's more into robes and wings and stuff and I reckon on your 364 days off you probably ditch that red gear and wear faded denims. You probably look really cool - a bit like a trendy Kenny Rogers. Only with Reindeer and an unhealthy interest in elves.

Thanks - I'll leave out a really big mince pie.

Big Kisses,



  1. I thought you could get jeans in all sorts of different fittings these days. They've gone a bit like coffee - too much choice! Gone are the days when one only had to decide between Nescafe and Maxwell House.
    As you can probably tell, it's a while since I've bought jeans. I have an old pair that get used for gardening or decorating in, but aren't suitable for wearing in the street due to having holes in embarrassing places.
    I'd post a picture, but I'd probably be arrested.
    Good luck with Santa, and have a Happy Christmas.

  2. Well that's true Martin but now all but the "high waisted" jeans all fall down and trying to find "high waisted" is like trying to find a needle in a haystack - they used to be the norm but have been replaced by "sits on the waist" - which is actually "below the waist" and leads to the ungainly habit of constantly hitching up one's jeans...
    You see - it's a hard life being a woman with these fashion dilemmas!!! After my last failed purchased of jeans a few weeks ago I think I'm going to quit searching altogether if Santa doesn't deliver; I am of the age I successfully make the transfer into crimpolene:))

    Those jeans of yours sound very dubious - I hope you have high garden fences!!

    A Happy Christmas to you too:))


I am always delighted to receive comments!

Less is More (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)

I've been practising my haikus, which you may recall, I'm not particularly good at. However, I wanted to address the woke issue in a...
