It's Holiday Time

I had intended to release a full album of my songs this year but I'm slow at recording and getting pneumonia in October stopped me in my tracks (literally!). So I can proffer only this as a Holiday offering. I wrote it on Christmas Day 1999 but it refers back to a Christmas in 1987 when my mother had just died, I'd had a pay cut at work and the hot water service and washing machine both conked out in the week before Christmas!  I hope that none of the things described in this song happen to you this holiday time!
