A shabby little Christmas with Mr Nylon!

After buying himself a coffee Mr Nylon entered the cottage and found himself in a room filled with shabby Christmas delight!
'Hmmm, not exactly my cup of tea', he thought, 'but I'm sure there would be some that would like it. Best thing about this place is that it's quiet.'

After taking a good look at his shabby surroundings Bri made himself as comfortable as he could on the pretty couch.
Looking rather pleased with himself he enjoyed a good magazine and his coffee in peace until he realised that something wasn't quite right.
'Maybe it's just a little too quiet', he thought...

Bri rushed back home to the welcoming arms of his (rather forgiving) family.

But where's the baby you ask?

Baby Peach is crawling as fast as she can when she spies a Christmas decoration on the floor.
That's no toy for a baby! I hear you say...oh, well, I guess it's not going to be peaceful for long!

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!

It wouldn't be Christmas without a little drama would it?!

Thank you for all your Christmas wishes, I hope you all have a very happy Christmas!
