Christmas in words – part 1

In our next few posts, we will be putting the spirit of Christmas into words with a round up of our favourite things about the festive season…

The frazzle of the family
the sizzle of the goose,
loading children up on chocolate
and letting them run loose;
the diplomacy of receiving
and the searching for receipts…

Good book, good fire, good lunch
– Merry Christmas to me.
