That was Christmas…

Christmas is over, decorations away

Santa left stuff for the kids to play

New games and gifts have replenished the stocks

But after a day kids are back on xbox

I’ve eaten the chocolates, cakes and crisps

Think i’ve shrunk my clothes they won’t fit past my hips

I’ve lovely new boots that I can’t parade

As I daren’t go the shops till the husband’s been paid

I nearly got choked and everything stinks

Never give 13 year olds gift sets of Lynx

Ask kids what’s the highlight and here’s what they’ll say

When Nan showed her bag saying it’s by F.U.C.K
