There’s Always One

If we were having a coffee  tonight, wouldn’t it have Bailey’s in it?!  Anyway, twas the night before Christmas…

And the week before for Christmas had dragged.  At work, whenever someone sent work to do, the overwhelming feeling was, “Really, did you have to?”  Unfortunately someone carried on doing that until Friday which was really inconsiderate.  Does everyone get that lack of motivation when they have a break coming?

We were saying that in the office actually, that the thing most people were looking forward to was the break.

Because not much has happened, I decided to write about a very first world problem, and that is the gifting of chocolates and sweets.

Take a look at this:

This is a tub of Cadbury’s Roses.  Who on earth in their packaging development department, thought that a not quite circular, not quite hexagonal, not quite tubular tub with a massive lip on the top was a good idea? I mean, how the hell are you supposed to wrap it neatly?

The other thing is that there’s always one you don’t like.  In my family, it used to be the coffee cremes but now it’s either the Bounty in a box of Celebrations or else the non-individually branded coconut ones.

I guess if my only problem this Christmas is with boxes of chocolates I’m pretty blessed.  Last year’s festivities sucked and, considering it’s my favourite times of year, that made it even worse.  So yeah, I’m looking forward to this year.  We put up the Christmas tree earlier (Moo helped):

But we still have wrapping to do, so best get to it.

Feinging joy and surprise at the gifts we despise over mulled wine with you
On the 25th day of the 12th month
The sleigh bells are in time ringing true
How we cling each Noel to that snowflake’s hope in hell
that it won’t end

Don’t let the bells end
Christmas time, just let them ring in peace.

Well the weather is cruel,
and the season of Yule warms the heart, but it still hurts.
You’ve got your career, spent the best part of last year apart and it still hurts
So that’s why I pray each and every Christmas day that it won’t end

Don’t let the bells end
Christmas time, just let them ring in peace.

Christmas time, don’t let the bells end
Christmas time, don’t let the bells end

Dust underneath the mistletoe leaves when you’re not here,
You went away upon boxing day,
Now how the hell am I gonna make it into the New Year.

Christmas time, don’t let the bells end
Christmas time, don’t let the bells end

Christmas time, don’t let the bells end
Christmas time, just let them ring in peace.

Christmas time, don’t let the bells end
Christmas time, don’t let the bells end

    I don’t have any English chocolate this year, and I used to work for Cadbury, when we lived in England.
