For Those – Poem

For all of those lost,
For those yet to be found,
Just think of the cost,
Not the value of the pound.
Think of the others, mid-search,
As you want for nought else,
Easily able to leave them in the lurch,
As all but an icy heart melts.
Struggling to smile for the day,
When so much is lacking,
Unable to stop the tears falling away,
And the internal clock clacking.
There’s still one door left of advent,
Less than an hour before the deadline,
Time for more lies to invent,
To convince all the others that I am just fine.
For those that once shared,
Sat beside me on the morning,
And did nothing but care.
For those that one day may,
Celebrate without mourning,
To bring a smile. One day.

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas…

Via Flickr:
… friends and family gave to me, twelve cards to recycle, eleven pots of food and drink, ten to six alarm, nine charity bags, eight minty yummies, seven travel brochures, six bottles to drink, five shopping bags, four classic films, three mince pies, two rubbish bags and a cracker for next year!

Well, that’s Christmas over with for another year. Normal service will now resume on this blog!

Have a happy 2012!

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas…

… my stomach emptied these, eleven pots of food and drink, ten to six alarm, nine charity bags, eight minty yummies, seven travel brochures, six bottles to drink, five shopping bags, four classic films, three mince pies, two rubbish bags and a cracker for next year!

Time to throw out all the rubbish! I have eaten and drunk so much this year. Although, I haven’t drunk as much as I normally would over Christmas!

Only one day left and then Christmas is officially over for another year!

Smiles,

… time dictated to me, to be up at this hour, nine charity bags, eight minty yummies, seven travel brochures, six bottles to drink, five shopping bags, four classic films, three mince pies, two rubbish bags and a cracker for next year!

Oh, and there it depressingly is! Ten minutes to seven and I’m already up and had my breakfast! Nooooo! Extra sympathy for any of those that went back to work/school/etc before today!

Happy New Year!

… my true love helped me to, make nine bags of charity, eight minty yummies, seven travel brochures, six bottles to drink, five shopping bags, four classic films, three mince pies, two rubbish bags and a cracker for next year!

And there it is: recycling all the stuff I’ve gathered over the year. Just need to get them to the charity shops now!

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without After Eight Mints – other brands are available. One day left before the year truly starts (aka work!).

On the Seventh Day of Christmas…

I spent the day with, seven holiday brochures, six brand new bottles, five shopping bags, four classic films, three mince pies, two bags of rubbish and cracker for next year!

It seems I always start planning a holiday in the few weeks after Christmas, so I went and got the brochures, now to plan the excursions!

Merry Sunny Christmas!
