In these trying times of austerity (blame the government, though I’m sure it’s not affecting them as much as it is us!) we are having to tighten our belts and watch our spending. But with Christmas fast approaching, this can cause more worry and anxiety as your children won’t even understand what austerity means and why should they suffer?
