In the middle of the dining room table

Nut roast , Goose, Chicken, Lamb, Beef or Turkey

The centrepiece of the Christmas Lunch

Every vegetable imaginable surrounding it

Gravy boats, Sauces, Napkins and the special silver makes it a

Right royal feast

And for afters – if there’s room – a

Lovely pudding….but enjoy your main course first!

the preparation for the festivities

has been a little different this year

but it hasn’t stopped

little uns writing off to mr claus

all is quiet on the street outside

but if you listen beyond the double glazing

you might hear the sound of a sleigh bell or two

while vegetables are being peeled and chopped

in preparation for tomorrows feast

and in the distance – little elves are busy

making sure the wrapped up gifts

get to the right house

in time for Christmas day

Somewhere up here , there’s a

Number of sheep, celebrating the holidays

Of course – among the white stuff you’ll only spot em

When they move about

Yet, at the moment – they’re blending in

Shepherds keep an eye on the

length of the pastures grass as

over time – where the sheep are feasting

pastures grass gets shorter as they

enjoy uninterrupted festive feasts

Robin egg blue

Wintery Christmas Baubles

Just the colour for Christmas celebrations

icy blue to match conditions outside

note – this colour also has something akin with a festive feathered friend

going about their business – landing on tree, grass roof and fence

living in a nearby nest, tending to the young uns

except – you won’t see them this celebration, maybe next.

I

At one end of the spectrum

warm and inviting, and sometimes hot

when looked at in places

warnings about

when you have to be aware

II

Rich ripe fruit

signal to the gardener

I’m ready to be picked

making their way

into pastries and puddings

or in some cases salads soups and stews

III

Hardly Missed

the first of the primaries

sticking out in the crowd

you couldn’t miss them

highlighting emotion

or even mistakes

IV

Moving at speed

Hard to miss

as it moves through traffic

to save a life

V

Jolly Man with a white beard

sends festive greetings to one and all

with gifts left under the decorated tree

to be opened on the morning

now, have you been naughty or nice ?

Christmas Lights

Bauble Ornament in a real Christmas tree

Coming out each year

Happily brightening up the festive tree

Red and Blue Baubles lit up by the fairy lights

Its what makes the glitter twinkle you know

Soon , the children will be

Taking a look underneath the tree. but for now they’re

Making a moment of the decorations

And watching the lights bounce around the branches

Santa’s not going to miss this festive delight, that makes everybody smile

#fowc #food #christmas #leftovers

Salford, 26th December 2019

By the time the pans were in the sink

undertakings of the Christmas leftovers were being sorted out

bird of the day stripped down to its carcass and

boxed up – and placed in the refridgerator

like the vegetables left behind from the feast

everyone knew what was for tomorrows dinner

Sizzle – went the pan – as meat and vegetables combined

quickly in motion with the aid of a bit of oil and butter

unlike the meal before it – this had a flavour all of its own

encompassing all its ingredients and perhaps one or two more

as the smell of the concoction – drifted on the cold winter air – leaving the

kitchen and wafting under the noses of everyone nearby

#Christmas #Hidden #Sweets

7th January 2019

I received an extra present yesterday.

I’d been wandering what dad was going on about when he mentioned an extra present at the end of Christmas time

I’d enjoyed seeing the brightly coloured baubles on the Christmas tree, especially the new larger ones. They were twinkly inside. I just guessed they were part of the decoration

Time came and each of the baubles came off the branches of the tree

and Dad told me of his secret….The twinkly baubles actually contained SWEETS. The foil wrapping reflected the lights off the tree

and in one of the big round baubles , all coloured red was my special surprise – a bag of vanilla fudge.

Stop press….it’s not just my dear old dad hiding stuff in baubles. My provider of hot chocolate has been at it too…delivered on 7th January. so now there’s another metal bauble for the Christmas tree.
