And A Merry, Merry Christmas.

Today I wish you plenty of tomorrows. Snow, sprouts and pigs in blankets. I wish you a snuggly lie in and children who wake at the crack of dawn desperate to see what’s in their stockings. I wish you sherry and fights with your sister over gets to keep the silliest of Christmas cracker gifts. I wish you a turkey that isn’t dry as a bone and roast potatoes you would sell your grandmother for. Kisses under the mistletoe and tangerines in the bottom of your stocking. I wish you socks and jumpers you wouldn’t wear in a million years and fifteen denier American tan tights from your Auntie Mabel. This is the only time of year when you can get away with wearing ugly christmas sweaters as the likelihood of everyone else doing the same thing is very high. I can’t wait to see what my jumper will be this year. I wish you Tv repeats galore and Hollywood Christmases you will never, ever tire of. I wish you nuts and chocolate and dates and sugared almonds. I wish you cries of delight and private moments to remember all your yesterdays. I wish you hope for tomorrow. I wish you piles and piles of books to make you smile. Board games to cause world war three and children so tired they drop to sleep in your arms…
I wish you all of this. And I wish you a wonderful life.
Happy Christmas Housekeepers.
