With champagne and plenty of gin, we welcomed the brand New Year in Fred got nissed as a pewt, and despite some dispute he wouldn’t leave to my chagrin! Old Freddie was drunk as a skunk, and clambered onto our top bunk But he fell to the floor - how he ranted and swore, I’m wary next time he gets drunk!

Though booze turns some men into romantics, look what they get for their antics. Love your witty limerick, Jan. Best wishes in Shadow's contest! Hugs, Carolyn

Having my son home was the only present I wanted, we had a very simple family christmas, been an amazing day until disaster struck and the dishwasher started to leak all over the kitchen floor, all three of us pulled together to deal with the mayhem, the dishwasher is now outside and I had to do about 85% of it by hand, hubby is getting the stragglers lol. a Christmas I will never forget for so many reasons!:-) hugs jan xx

Thanks Matthew I am not a new year fan and don't celebrate it and most certainly wont be getting drunk as a skunk, I rarely drink alcohol but I am also on a course of antibiotics and can't drink anyway. someone we were once friends with in a terrible state with alcohol issues, its really heartbreaking she is such a mess:-( hugs Jan xx

These were a treat Jan! You always delight with your Limericks. Have a great night! Merry Christmas! I know Santa delivered you just what you wanted...your son home! : ) xxoo

- A really funny one, Jan :) - I've heard: After one glass of alcohol ... one feels younger ... after two glasses ... one feels like a new man ... and after eight glasses ... one pee in the pants and crawls home :) - Luck in the contest - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

yeuk at 8 pints and peeing your pants, a horrid state to be in:-( hugs Jan xx

Haha that is so funny Jan, especially Fred getting nissed as a pewt, haha... Good luck in the competition, though I am sure you will get a top placement as it is full of humour with undertones of what over indulgence can do. Kindest thoughts Ann xx

Its a premiere contest so I'm not sure if it will appeal to Shadow or not but sadly there is a lot of over indulgence at this time of year:-( hugs Jan x

Lol! Jan , This is funny. Apt for the upcoming New Year! Freddie shouldn't have mixed Champagne and Gin. Good photo and videos as well. I wish you the best of luck in the contest. Merry Christmas my friend:-)Alexis

Makes me glad I don't drink much Alexis and I'm on antibiotics for another 6 days so I couldn't drink if I wanted to I see so many issues with drink - the police here have already arrested more for drink driving than last year and they will be busy with drink related incidents up to the new year. Sadly some folk just don;t know when to stop:-( hugs Jan, Hope youhad a wonderful time with your family:-) hugs Jan xx
