The Christmas Email πŸŽ„

T’was the night before Christmas, I’m peeling the sprouts,
I’ll regret it tomorrow of that I’ve no doubts.
I’ve spent hours wrapping pressies for under the tree.
Everyones socially distancing so it’s up to me.
This year’s been a bummer so I thought let’s spread the joy
(cough) Here’s our news which is bound to annoy.
Lets start with grandpa well he’s loosing the plot
he’s been stalking the estate quite a lot.
Since they said he can drive no more,
he’s been acting like a bear with a head that’s sore!
Hubby has been busy washing hands and making masks
when people get too close he takes them to task.
Jerome, Cathy and Hermione are fine,
in and out of school all the time.
Fighting over computer, laptop and tablet …all of them mine!
We’ve all had to isolate at different times ,
we’ve done as we’re told to avoid fines!
We’re all sick of watching the neighbours breaking the rules.
How will we ever be rid of this Covid surrounded by fools.
The chickens stopped laying last week,
the hamsters are missing we’ve not heard a squeak.
We’ve had our fair share of hospitals and Ambulances too.
But to be fair in lockdown there’s not much to do!
My goodness is that the time,
I must get this sent then open the wine.
Merry Christmas to you and your bubble,
let’s hope 2021 is less trouble.
The Vaccine is coming we’ll all grow two heads..I don’t really care, in 100years we’ll all be dead!

    A strange holiday for sure. I agree that until everyone follows the rules, we are all unsafe. Hoping you are well.

        Hi Willow! We’re doing fine as can be. this has been a year and them some. T not recovering like we had hoped from back surgery. the engine in our main car blew up…and we have been dealing with a serious health issue with Winston…our 7 year old bull mastiff mix. Vet still doesn’t know what is wrong but he keeps losing weight. 😟 That said, i must count our blessings. we have managed so far to avoid contact with the virus. And each day is a new day that is not promised, but that i’m grateful for. Just feeling a bit tired is all. Hope you are doing well. recovering past your own health issues this year. i think we’re all ready to turn the corner! β€οΈπŸ’œβ€οΈ
