As the holiday celebrations get under way, the NFF wants to feature YOU on our social media!
Our unique lifestyle sometimes demands an amazing sense of humour, and we want to share your less than ‘picture-perfect’ stories. Eligible story entries* will go into the hat to win a £100 Amazon gift card. If you have a printable ‘funny’ about holiday mishaps then please let us know: surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Advent-Capers
We will be posting a story every weekday from 9th to 20th December. Follow us to read all about it: Facebook; Instagram; Twitter
Here is an example of what we are looking for:
‘Elf on the shelf – a regular occurrence in our household from the 1st December.. Buddy the elf comes to visit and each day is found in a different place up to something naughty. He returns back to the North Pole every night to report on the children’s behaviour (an amazing parenting technique to regulate (or attempt to regulate) behaviour). What isn’t represented in this photo is the hours of work and effort that go into planning and organising what this naughty elf is going to do every day; the blind panic that hits you in the morning when you wake up and you remember that you forgot to put him out the night before – resulting in you creeping down the stairs, praying desperately that the kids don’t wake up (or god forbid haven’t woken up and are already downstairs and noticed) whilst you go to position said elf; the pressure that comes from Instagraming/Facebook posting the latest position of said elf to trump the children’s friends elves; the sheer relief that sweeps over parents on Christmas Eve when said elf returns to the North Pole for another year on to return in 330 odd days!!!!’
