Best singing voices everyone – to be sung to Away in A Manger
Christmas in Australia
is just round the bend
I have prepped and stressed out
and now hope this will end
We shall have our nibbilies
when they first walk in the door
then we’ll offer them a drink
one or two or maybe more
We shall sit at the table and crack
our bon-bons plastic toys and
paper hats silly jokes and
lot’s of noise
I’ll stress ’bout the turkey and also the pork
is it cooked through
is it done right
please test with your fork
I’ll consume too much alcohol
I know this to be true
and I’ll get all melancholy
just looking at you
the entree will come first
do not know what they’ll bring
I’m sure it’ll be delightful
and we’ll gladly tuck in
the potatoes will be crunchy
the pumpkin cooked just right
the mushy peas and salads
tasty morsels every bite
Then we have our pudding
lashings of custard if you please
then there’s trifle laced with alcohol
oh our belts will surely squeeze
The wine will flow freely
the laughs will get loud
there’ll be memories of
past years and how we imbibed
The presents will we open we
will goo and we will will gaa
we shall say oh you shouldn’t have
you really went too far
BUT secretly we are happy
for the presents that they gave
we’re delighted and thankful
and each one is our fave
The Carols will be playing
in the background soft and sweet
we shall eat drink and be merry
and later fall asleep
Yes this day is for families
and ones that you love
if I start to get teary
I will blame the egg-nog
The festivities will be finished
the kitchen is a mess
the dishes piled up high
but at least no more stress
Then Christmas day is over and
our tummies will be full and we
daren’t go and weigh ourselves
no that would be cruel
So enjoy your celebrations
whatever you may do have
and cry or laugh hysterically
for you’re entitled too

I wish a very MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of my Followers and readers.
Some of you have been with me since I began this journey, others who are new to my ramblings.
To all that have pressed LIKE, to all of you that have VISITED and SUPPORTED me on this wild ride of prolific writing (I don’t….do I?) when I first began in July. I had no idea when a friend of mine said “You like writing so much why don’t you start your own blog site”. I also had no idea that I would have an audience ..in fact any audience (I know it’s tiny compared to some, but more than I ever thought I would have). So to those that have made that possible – I thank you.
For those that may check their Stats (hands up I know you do).
July 21 visits and 7 posts.
August 117 visits and 14 posts.
September 830 visits and 33 posts.
October 1,206 visits and 34 posts.
November 1,032 visits and 24 posts.
December 1,851 visits and 69 posts…. I did mention I was a prolific writer (went on a bit) did I not?
Good grief that means I have passed the 5000th visitor – Sings – “Celebrate Good Times…Come On”!
I have made friends on here, (sorry if that sounds cliche), but it is the truth….virtual though they are (for most of you).
I have read some amazing stories and equally some outstanding poetry.
I have giggled, cursed, empathised, rolled my eyes, blushed and shed a tear through laughter or sorrow. I have seen amazing photography, I have witnessed people’s lives through their words and discovered truly talented and heart warming people.
So diverse the writers on here with so many stories yet told.
To those that I follow – I hope that I have been supportive and shown that I do care about what you write and grant me the sanity to continue 🙂
Tomorrow will be a hectic one… but when the family has left and the rooms are quiet, I shall be back on here helping RoS for C4C along with many others who have volunteered some time to help those that are alone and want to reach out to someone to hopefully bring them a little cheer… now that’s what Christmas is ALL ABOUT. 🙂
Take Care everyone, stay safe and may your Christmas Day be filled with wonderment, joy and mostly love.
Let’s see how long I will stay away for..knowing me..not long at all 🙂
