6 Christmas cast-offs that are definitely lying around your house right now
Pink Roses, Fudge bars, cracker crap…

1. A half-eaten Fudge bar

The Fudge bar is the undisputed red-wrappered stepchild of the selection box.

There’s definitely a discarded one lying on a sideboard or under the couch right now.

There might even be a full one in a selection box.

To be honest, you’ll be glad of it come 2 January.

2. Plastic ties

On Christmas morning there was a frenzied need to break these open and release to delicious toys inside.

Now, they lie discarded, a mere plaything for bored cats.

5. Mystery batteries

Are they old or new? Did you take them out of something or are they ready to go into something.

6. You

You were going to get off the couch, but Mary Poppins is about to start.

Maybe you’ll have a Strawberry Dream after all. They’re not that bad…
