Some of the reindeer had been a bit of a sticking point when it came to letting the Mother Christmases do deliveries, but Alice soon had that one sorted. She pointed out to them that the average weight of a woman was a lot less than a man, so they could go more quickly and with less effort. Well, that was good as far as it went, but then the Senior FC team realised that with the Mother Christmases joining in, we actually had more people doing deliveries than we had reindeer to pull them. They scratched their heads a bit over that one, because no-one wanted to discriminate any longer, but then decided that the best solution was for some sleighs to carry 2 deliverers and aim to park between houses so that one could do the left house and the other the right. So the average weight argument disappeared, and we now again have the problem of how to mollify the reindeer. -It will all come down to brussels sprouts in the end.
Rhodri says can I remind everyone that the entries for the prize quiz need to be in by 10th November and they can find the entry form by clicking on the 'Win a Prize' tab at the top of the page. He says he’s put enough clues on the site for everyone to have a good guess and they don’t have to buy anything, so I expect you all may as well try.
