Merry Christmas from Downunder


Christmas is on its way!

and I'd just like to say...

I hope you have a hoppy time,

with colourful friends

and friendly family.

May you laugh like a kookaburra,

sing like a lyrebird,

 chatter like a dolphin.

and be as cute as a platypus.

I hope your tables are full of tasty treats

and yummy foods that remind you of home.

May your days be filled with beauty,

big smiles,

relaxing times,

and much happiness.

Wishing you lots of sunshine from downunder 



and a very, very, merry, merry Christmas!!
