I have been a little remiss.
Eva gave me her letter to Santa to post, and I confess, it hasn't yet made it in to the post box.
I have promised her I will post it today.
Don't worry - I didn't steam it open.
She did - when she realised that she did, after all, want the real hair extensions, and not, as originally asked for, the plastic ones.
I am only grateful that Santa is a man of many talents and he will of course know where to find real hair extensions that are 45 cm long, and that match Eva's hair colour, because I wouldn't have a clue where to start.
Thankfully Eva did realise that in the letter she hadn't told Santa her hair colour, so there is a P.S on the outside of the envelope.
'P.S My hair is dirty blonde'.
But you can't write that Eva, I said. Santa will think your hair is just plain old dirty, as in not clean.
'Don't be silly Mummy - dirty blonde is a hair colour. Even Father Christmas knows that.'
She proceeded to find me one of her favourite You Tube videos where they did in fact talk about 'dirty blonde hair'. I am unconvinced.
But You Tube domination in hair tutorials is, in fact, Eva's dream.
The fact that, having just turned 9, she is still light years away from being remotely allowed a You Tube account doesn't phase her.
She has been recording a few tutorials of her own anyway.
A little sign of things to come - she made story boards for the first video.
Just in case she lost her way mid-take.
That was never going to happen. Big Fizz Bomb Pop was able to wing it quite nicely.
Remember that name in years to come!!
Meanwhile Santa, we're in your hands.
