A Wee Christmas story.


Thought with it being such a sad time in J-land I would relate this tale of the happenings of a neighbour on Christmas Eve.

My neighbour across the roads daughter was due to deliver her second baby on the 23rd of December. Nothing happened on Sunday but in the early hours of Christmas Eve she went into labour. At about 11am on Monday, Christmas Eve she gave birth to a son. Now this being her second baby and a ‘normal birth’ mother and baby were fine she was sent home at 3pm that day.

Unfortunately nobody told the car it was it was making such an important journey and it did the unthinkable and broke down on the way home from the hospital. Now just to keep the story right for the time of year the breakdown happened right outside and Inn that is actually called an Inn. My neighbours daughter promptly called her and she told here to go to the Inn and ask to shelter there till the breakdown service arrived but I’m afraid just to spoil the story she would not be persuaded to go to the inn she thought every one there would think she was just joking. The breakdown service did make an great effort and were there in no time at all and delivered the three of them home safe and sound.

When I was told this story on Monday night I was rolling about laughing as I could just have imagined the mother and baby going to the Inn for shelter on Christmas Eve. Glad to say Mum and baby are doing well and as we say all well that ends well. Till next time, Love
