Day #355Title: Going Round The Bend
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I have a confession to make. I hate the run-up to Christmas. For starters, December has such short daylight hours, and you’re lucky to find any sun at all on some days. Thank goodness it’s the Winter Solstice tomorrow – things can only get lighter from then on. And then there’s the insane knots people tie themselves in, during their frenzied shopping, for all those “essentials” for the Christmas period. It’s only a couple of days when the shops are shut, but some folks seem to get a seige mentality and insist on stocking up with weeks’ worth of provisions. Not to mention the angst caused by not knowing what to get as presents, or wondering if you’ve spent too much. To be honest, I’ll be glad when it’s all over and I can relax and spend some time with friends. So, there you are. My little rant is over. Sorry to be a Scrooge about it all. Bah, Humbug!

  • Im driving home for christmas
    Oh, I cant wait to see those faces
    Im driving home for christmas, yea
    Well Im moving down that line
    And its been so long
    But I will be there
    I sing this song
    To pass the time away
    Driving in my car
    Driving home for christmas

    Its gonna take some time
    But Ill get there
    Top to toe in tailbacks
    Oh, I got red lights on the run
    But soon therell be a freeway
    Get my feet on holy ground

    So I sing for you
    Though you cant hear me
    When I get trough
    And feel you near me
    I am driving home for christmas
    Driving home for christmas
    With a thousand memories

    I take look at the driver next to me
    Hes just the same
    Just the same

    Top to toe in tailbacks
    Oh, I got red lights on the run
    Im driving home for christmas, yea
    Get my feet on holy ground
    So I sing for you
    Though you cant hear me
    When I get trough
    And feel you near me
    Driving in my car
    Driving home for christmas
    Driving home for christmas
    With a thousand memories
