All Children Deserve an Advent Calendar.  Edit

The Christmas after S was born, I was on maternity leave from work. I was on a minimal income. I was doing okay, day-to-day, but the thought of Christmas was terrifying. It was the first year I would be responsible for someone else’s Christmas, the first year I would be cooking Christmas dinner. I had never even cooked a proper roast dinner before; I didn’t know where to start… but I had a feeling it was going to decimate my bank account.

At the time, we had a Homestart volunteer who visited weekly. The Homestart co-ordinator kept in touch to make sure we were ok, with phone calls from time to time. One day I had a call from Homestart: they were liaising with the Trussell Trust to organise Christmas food parcels to their families, and wondered if I would like one.
