Christmas when I was a child was a mixed bag of emotions and incidents. My parents, particularly my dad, loved Xmas. Every year, we would receive a large Xmas bag full of toys. The toys would be from jumble sales and not wrapped, but did I care? No. I didn’t even notice the difference until I went into care, and found the oddity of wrapped presents – I thought I was well posh then!
