The trees went up on the first of December,
seems so long ago, I can hardly remember
Yes they are real, from a nice local grower,
my friend brought them down, as I’d asked on the blower.
Festive friendly fodder, we ate much and plenty
and now for the use ups to greet 2020.
The cranberry sauce became a nice sorbet,
with clementine, sloe gin, brought joy to a buffet.
The chestnuts whizzed down with caramel and cream,
swiftly became an impressive ice cream.
A mince pie meringue thing that couldn’t be bettered,
tasted divine ……and was simply endeavoured.
Left over brussels in a bloomin’ great fry up.
The brie-bready thingy, an absolute riot
An hour or so tucked up in my sauna.
(it seats 3-4, it’s tucked in a corner)
The warmth and the quiet started me thinking,
it’s been quite a while, post twinkling, an inkling?
To whizz up a post, and sent hugs and smiles,
a real heartfelt thank you, across all the miles.
If I lob together these few bits and pieces
I might well included a few ice cream kisses
The sorbet, the ice creams, a bit of a wheeze,
will be done again because of their ease.
A happy new year, wish you joy, wish you plenty
And every thing good for the years’ 2020.
