Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

When Santa came down the cooker hood

with 2 comments

“Mummy, will Santa end up on the cooker?” asked DS the other week, looking dubiously at our oven’s extractor hood. “Will he land in a saucepan? And what if you’re cooking something?”


(It’ a valid, concern, I thought – I always seem to be cooking something these days).

“No, silly,” said DD, a veteran of how Santa gets into our Dubai villa (which is obviously sans chimneys). “He makes himself tiny and comes through the air-conditioning vents. Duh!”

Either way, I decided to thrill them both on Christmas morning with a picture of Santa caught on camera right next to the cooker, courtesy of (see below) Merry Christmas!

Caught in the act!
