On the first thread of Christmas
It was still mid June
Do you think this might be posting too soon?

On the second thread of Christmas
I feared I had to moan
I thought I might be on my own

On the third thread of Christmas
I felt a little cross
My DD says Can she bring her horse?

On the fourth thread of Christmas
I thought Id better buy
At least a lovely ham and turkey pie

On the fifth thread of Christmas
We were a couple more
My sister and my brother in law

On the sixth thread of Christmas
I knew that I would need
A duvet and some extra sheets

On the seventh thread of Christmas
I went up to the loft
but the Christmas tree was eaten by moths

On the eighth thread of Christmas
Before getting ready to go out
I thought Id better put on the sprouts

On the ninth thread of Christmas
The grocery order came
But it wasnt the one Id booked in my name

On the tenth thread of Christmas
I went to peel the spuds
But the whole lot turned out to be duds

On the eleventh thread of Christmas
My guests started to arrive
Were we really going to be TWENTY FIVE?

On the twelfth thread of Christmas
I went to get the booze
Packed it in a suitcase
And went off on a two week CRUISE.

Well it has felt like November here today so I don't feel I have enough time to get everything done.
I usually leave sprouts until October so Thank you for the reminder.

GrannyGravy13 Tue 18-Jun-19 09:41:56

Mawbroon I was trying to be funny........obviously I have had an epic fail!!!!! 不不不不

MawBroonsback Tue 18-Jun-19 09:44:09

By referring to me as Phoenix?

GrannyGravy13 Tue 18-Jun-19 10:07:18

Oh Mawbroon. I have no defence I am so sorry

Well actually in my defence.........AD who is pregnant has been throwing up all night and now has a migraine, consequently guest bathroom lavatory is blocked, I had to get GC to pre-school(including pack lunches)!!

Mr. Gravy is now in bathroom with rods and magic fluid!!!

Our AS and wife are here until the weekend when he flies overseas for his next deployment, so juggling bathrooms.

Roll on Monday we will have our house back- and I shall be sad and lonely.

Phew shopping is looking a breeze!!!!

MawBroonsback Tue 18-Jun-19 10:11:05

Good luck to Mr Dynorod smile
