I’m Christmassy and a teeny bit excited…but not drunk, I just like the pic!…because I’ve put together some funny Christmas poems over the last couple of days and compiled a mini anthology called It’s Christmas! (Out tomorrow 19/11/14 or possibly late today.)
From Tommy Turkey: Legend to Party Animal Pete it’s been great fun and even if no one ever buys it, borrows it or even glances at the cover on Amazon I’ve had a fab couple of Christmassy indulgent days – I even ate my first panatone of the winter to be festive!
Yes, it was DELICIOUS! I wish that I could claim that it was homemade and I am a brilliant cook but hey, I can write and my sister got the culinary skills – seems fair to me!
A few years ago she sent us her homemade mince pies all the from Canada to the UK…mince pies travel well. (and if she happens to read this she can always take the last line as a walloping great big hint ;-)X
Tomorrow I’ll be back to non season related work…might sing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer to start the day…nope, I’m not a great singer, yep, you want my sister for singing ability! Athough be warned: I painted her recorder with nail varnish once because I was fed up with the screeching that her playing inspired so she can’t do EVERYTHING!
Heehee Naughty? Moi (innocent face!!) Her revenge: She started to ply the clarinet AND the guitar – or Guitaaaaaaaaaargh!
Have fun peeps
Joanne (only 36 days until Christmas…I just KNEW you’d wanna know!!)
The temperatures seem to have dipped so it’s a woolly jumper kind of a day – I can do creative and woolly though so it’s all good!
This is a haiku I wrote today inspired by the leafy chaos in the park, I thought that I’d share it…
Strong beau, sweep me up
Murmured the leaves to the broom
Lost beau was a rake!
And huge thanks to Morgen Bailey who has used one of my “spread the word” poems: It can be found via this link:
I am editing a short story at the moment that’s based in Spring and I sent a children’s Christmas story ready for upload in December to an editor this afternoon.
Talk about season hopping!
Have a great week, stay warm or cool depending on where you are and with joy I can tell you that there are only 51 days left until Christmas…ho, ho, ho! (Don’t groan!!)
