Default Who's going home for Christmas? (And a Poem by me!)

It's pratically here already, I thinking we may have a white one this year.

A poem I just composed:

From Dubai to Heathrow, we may be greeted by snow, the roads will be gritted and traffic so slow.

Radio 1's the familiar sound, as we drive home, where family and pets can be found.

Piping hot stew and warm crusty bread, no more AC the log fire instead.

Slippers on, the cat's on your lap, the dog's by your feet and he's taking a nap.

Jack Frost is outside as we look out the window, the Christmas Tree's glistening, we're back home for Chrimbo.

The big day arrives and we open our pressies, we tuck in to dinner then off for some bevvies.

Back for the Queens speech and a nap on the sofa, tomorrow's Boxing Day and Christmas will be over.

New years has arrived, the countdown is here, Big Ben strikes 12 and we let off a cheer.

And now it's all over, it's time to return, to the land of sand dunes and some serious sun burn.
