Last Minute Christmas

Last minute Christmas
Oh what a to do
The shops are just crazy
The traffic is too
The queues are horrendous
The congestion a mess
Why leave it so late
And get in a stress?

But that’s how it happens
Every year without fail
You plan oh so calmly
To shop, cook to entail
That peace and serenity
Sees the preps done timely
But does it happen that way
Don’t be daft – not to me!

So last minute Christmas
All done in a rush
And wrapped in the small hours
When the house is all hush
And the cake and the pudding
Cooked on the last day
But dowsed in much brandy
To take all cares away!

 

The Christmas Cake

Take a 100 grams of flour
And add a little more
Take some sugar from the cupboard
Add fruit and eggs all raw
Then stir it up together
With spoons of happiness
And add the last ingredients
For a cake that’s truly blessed

The special last ingredients
A dashing of pure love
With cups of hope and kindness bright
Lest wishes from above
Add joy and family spirit
Compassion and sweet care
And mix and blend it all as one
For the best of Christmas fayre

Then put it in the oven warm
To bake for a long time
To cook where sweet aromas waft
For something quite sublime
Then top with frosted icing
And decorate with cheer
To wish each a Merry Christmas
And a blessed Happy New Year
