Ilkeston Cam - Searching For Santa
w/e 08 December 2002


As we get ever nearer to the 25th, I thought it was about time I got my Christmas List to Santa. Wanting to hand it over to him personally I thought this would be a good place to start. With a window full of toys, it seemed a good bet that the red clad man would be inside.
No-one Home

I soon found his cabin but despite a roof full of presents and a couple of sacks inside (inset), I'm afraid there was no-one home.

Better try his residence at the retail outlet at South Normanton then, I thought, but even though the sign said "Queue here and be patient", I decided against joining the queue as he would not be here until the following day!
Centre Spot

This elusive man sure is a man of property but even at another abode at the Centre Spot in Derby, there was no sign of him. It appears that I was not the only one searching for him as someone else was peering through the door in his Grotto.
Empty Seat

Maybe he was around the corner in the Eagle Centre, I mused but even here he was conspicuous by his absence and his majestic seat was empty.
Found Him!

Success! At last I tracked him down at a supermarket in Spondon near Derby. Now. where did I put that list?
