PostSubject: Merry Christmas and a happy new year!   December 28th 2010, 2:58 pm

Merry Christmas and a happy new year,
Mums on the Baileys Dads on the beer,
Grans had way too much sherry,
And the mils kicking up a fuss.
I think we’ll break the habit,
And have it for just the kids and us.
Grandad pops a cracker,
The plastic menace flies into the soup,
Someone must have switch the gravy with the coffee,
And mils potatoes taste like warmed up gloop.
After dinner is finally over,
We gather around the tree,
I watch the kid’s delighted faces,
As another load of junk piles up around me.
Think of the trees, think of the waste,
Think of the poor old bin men,
Who will no doubt need a giant digger?
To combat the Christmas waste.
When the toys are played with,
And kids are safely in bed,
I snuggle up on the sofa,
And wonder about something,
My dear old mother once said.
Christmas is a time for giving,
But also a time for family’s to share.
So I turns on me faithful laptop,
And starts to click away,
Alas the answer to all me troubles,
I give me mother in law away!

Grins, MidnightW! It took a while before "mils" registered but you brought that home in the ending. Kids love Christmas gifts: the rest of the day is for quality family time. Few of us actually achieve that. Nice write. H x

lol Harklight's exactly right, I didn't know what "mils" meant at first either but caught it at the end and then it all hit me at once, too funny Midnightwriter. Smile
