''The past two years have been so difficult for my family and myself due to lockdown and the fact that I was unable to earn enough money. In 2020 I was unable to buy presents for my 4 little children and the excuse I used at that time was to convince them was 'lockdown' measure and restrictions mean Santa was unable to travel to deliver presents. Luckily this year I was able to buy presents and we spent Christmas Eve with other friends''
