Woman manages not to put kid's letter to Santa on Facebook

A MOTHER has been praised for not taking a photo of her child’s letter to Father Christmas and posting it to Facebook.

Donna Sheridan resisted sharing daughter Emily’s letter despite it having a number of backwards letters and endearingly impossible requests.

The letter, written in green crayon and addressed to “Santa / Farther Cristmas” included items like “a dog the same as the one from Poor Patrol”, “world piece” and “a new (beter) brother”.

Friend Joanna Kramer said: “I’ve seen the letter and I can’t believe it. It’s got everything.

“The fact that she hasn’t posted it with a caption like ‘Yeah, so I guess my kid is pretty adorable’ or shared it in a mothers’ group she hasn’t looked at since last year is unbelievable.

“Donna is just a normal mum who loves her family. Today she did something extraordinary.”

What keeps you awake at night?

A. Money worries, wondering where your life is going.
B. Fretting about whether Princess Charlotte will inherit the pleasing good looks of Kate and Diana or turn out like a female Prince Charles.

When you heard about Prince Harry’s engagement what did you do?

A. Didn’t care or wished them well in a totally abstract sort of way.
B. Wept tears of joy as if it were my own child and sent a formal letter of congratulations that went straight in the palace shredder.

What is in your spare room?

A. An old PC, boxes of crap like Jeffrey Archer novels and a mattress.
B. £55,000-worth of overpriced royal tat accumulated over the years, including ‘limited edition’ plates, VHS tapes of Prince Andrew’s ‘fairytale’ wedding and a frankly disturbing lifelike Prince George doll.

You discover the Duchess of Cambridge recently wore a blue hat. What do you do?

How should the press cover royal news?

A. As an aside to real news.
B. In the style of the Daily Mail with an unending stream of articles about meaningless non-events written in a sickeningly twee style, for example, ‘That’s a BIG yawn for a little princess, Charlotte!’
