Christmas Junk


Christmas junk!

That’s what my head is full of

How can I be expected to remember the stamps?

I have a million other Christmas things going on!


Remember to take the kids to the Christmas disco

Remember to make the angel costume

Remember to write the Christmas cards

Remember to book the panto

Christmas junk is what I call it

All the other things to do

on top of being a busy mum and wife

But I am sorry, I forgot the stamps


I did remember to order the presents

I did put up the Christmas lights

I did buy the wrapping paper

write to Santa, decorate the tree

go to the Grotto, order the turkey

But I am sorry, I forgot the stamps


My head is in Christmas Land

I’m working full speed ahead

to make this the best Christmas ever

But until the day when the big man comes

I will forget to iron your shirts

I will forget to find your tie

I will forget to make your tea

and I will forget to buy your stamps!


The Post Office is down the road

Background: I really did forget to buy the stamps for my husband's Christmas cards. I let him know about all the other things I'd done to prepare for Christmas!!! It makes us laugh now!!
