December Already

Well, December is here and it is officially the first day of winter, but what does December mean to you?

As a child I remember the excitement of the run up to Christmas and all the festive decorations in the shops. It was always snowing in my memories and everyone was happy and full of Christmas Cheer.

As I have got older I have realised how commercial it all is these days and that takes away some of the magic.  Also as an adult there is so much to do at this time of the year, and as a small business owner it is also very busy. So once again it is a juggling act to keep my customers happy and give the family a wonderful Christmas.

December's here already, but how can that be so
Summer has only just left us and now we're thinking snow!
Christmas gets ever nearer - I won't be ready in time
Presents to buy and food to cook -  oh and tickets for the Pantomine
It wasn't always this hectic, not when I was small
I just waited and waited for the day when Santa came to call

Life was simple in those days and everything was great
The hardest thing I had to do was, well, just sit and wait
But now that I'm a grown up, it isn't quite such fun
I'm starting to get worried 'bout the things still to be done
I'll make a list, so I wont forget - I really cannot risk it
I just have time for a cup of tea and maybe a chocolate biscuit.

I really quite enjoy it all - if I tell the truth
At least I have much more control, than I did in my youth
They'll eat just what I give them, and like the presents I make
And if they don't I'll shut them up with a great big slice of cake!

Happy December everyone!
