Who's Coming To Town?

I'm feeling rather chilled about Christmas. If I haven't already done it, it's not getting done.

I'm going to the supermarket later, to pick up a few items. But, I'm totally calm, I really am!

With that in mind, I thought about the stress that some mothers get into, over the Christmas meal. So I wrote this little ditty, that goes with the 'Santa Claus is Coming To Town' Christmas song.


She's making a list
She's checking it twice
She's bought the dessert
And she's put it on ice

Mommy dear is going to town

She's got a tall glass
She's filled it with gin
The sprouts are all peeled
And the Turkey's gone in

Mommy dear is going to town

She'll drink while they are sleeping
She'll eat while they're awake
She won't care if the Turkey's dry
She'll be pissed for goodness sake!

So you can pout all you want
She won't care if you cry
Just don't shout too loud
I'm telling you why

Hungover mum is coming to town

My Sunday Photo

This has been a hectic week for my little A. It's been something different everyday, as it is in all schools, in the run up to Christmas.

We've had a few wobbles, but overall he's coped quite well.

On top of that, due to his mental age, this is the first year he has really *got* Christmas.

So imagine his delight when he got to have breakfast with Santa in school:

Thanks to the school, for taking such a lovely photograph of him.

Tis The Season....

Well, apparently, to bash others!

All I seem to be reading, across social networks, is people complaining about how much other people spend on their children, or how little.

Quite frankly, I'm sick of it!

Why should it matter!? 

 Regardless of how much, or little, I spend on my children, I won't rub people's noses in it. For me, personally, Christmas is about family, about spending time with the ones I love the most. 

I don't have a lot of money, and I don't think Xmas is about that. I'm not going to judge someone for over-spending, or going a little crazy. It's their decision, and also their debt if they should choose to go down that road.

Along those same lines, let's stop the benefit bashing, just for the season?

If you are lucky enough to claim NO benefits, at all, then count yourself lucky. There are people that take advantage, of course! However, most are just trying to get by. 

Don't look down on the benefit system until you can say you claim nothing, including child benefit, family tax etc.

Just live and let live, even if just for the season.

Everyone can then have the Merriest of Christmases.

So Term Time Is Over....

TThe alarms are shut off
The lie ins can start.
Term time is over
No more time apart.

We can begin the big countdown
Til the fat man arrives
The season is in full flow
Bringing joy to our lives.

I'll stay in bed late
The boys will give me rest.
What, you don't think that's true!?
I'm sure they'll do their best!

Who am I kidding?
I'll be up before the sun
Children waking me, at the crack of dawn
Wanting to have fun.

I'll get through each day
In the jolliest of mood
I'll survive it, I'm sure.....
With alcohol and food
