Here’s to a stress-free Christmas!

It’s been a while, but I’m sure you’ve been so busy you’ve barely noticed. Anyway, I’m back but will be changing course: I’m working on a book of humorous verses, some of which will be posted here from time to time. This one, which comes with warm season’s greetings, is about my stress-free Christmas – hope yours is too.


She’s a secret that is murky:

She has never stuffed a turkey;

Christmas pudding and mince pies?

That’s the stuff she simply buys.

She looks forward with great glee

To a Christmas that’s stress-free,

Which, of this there is no doubt,

Means, quite frankly, eating out;

This is why she is so merry

(Though her hubby blames the sherry),

Knowing they will have a ball;

Merry Christmas, one and all!

  1. A christmas wish in rhyme, I’m surprised you have the time But knowing your not averse To writing things in verse I know your little ditties Which Are so very witty Will give you pleasure in the making But now my hand is shaking Because in making my reply I will really have to try To cross my T’s and dot my I’s As my faults will catch your eye My best wishes for next year I send with Christmas cheer To Last the whole year through For Vincent and for you. All my love and best wishes to you both David Sent from my iPad

  2. Nice to see you back here. I have been happy to see you have been reading some of my posts. Making the holidays stress-free sounds like a good plan. I have come to appreciate it that my husband and daughter pitch in when I am preparing a holiday meal. This year I am a bit out of commission with a bad cold. So I am pretty much sitting on the sidelines appreciating others efforts. Having quiet holidays is very appealing to me. Hope yours are restful and enjoyable.

    • Many thanks, Deborah; it’s nice to be back. Yes, I am having a peaceful Christmas and am about to go for a nice walk in the surrounding mountains with friends. I hope your cold goes soon – my British-born contemporaries swear by hot toddies (not sure if you have similar remedies in the States). x 
