Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve
it is so late
that even Mum and Dad
are fast asleep in bed

I stand at the top of the stairs

The house is warm
and the tree lights glow

I can smell mince pies
and anticipation

I make a wish

Christmas smells?

Ive noticed it too. At the monet I can smell the cauliflower cheese bubbling away in the oven. I think it's that anyway. Archie will probably say it's my jumper.
