"Oh dear, we're running low on teabags ! We'll have to buy them at 10c each from Géant Casino !"
A few minutes later the postman knocked on the door with three packages. "Nothing to sign", he said.
The first contained chocolate. Cadbury's chocolate for the children.
The second contained stuffing, mince pies and a Christmas pudding. Both from one of Pat's sisters.
The third contained ... A big box of PG Tips !
Yippeee ! Reprieved !
And we have decided that as soon as we can it'll be Christmas again. We have crackers left, too.
