I've missed my blogging friends over the last six weeks or so and hope this finds you all well. I can't wait to start catching up with all your news and musings. It has been pretty hectic and messy around here I can tell you, so much so I haven't managed to put pen to paper (or fingers on keys even) but I've written a little ditty to put you in the picture.
Oh for a bit of peace!
Just ten minutes to escape the mess
The banging the crashing the sawing the drilling
The comings and goings of men
Sparkies and chippies, plasterers and painters
Deliveries, and parking and skips full of rubbish
there's no end
Walls are knocked through and ceilings renewed as are the window and door
The kitchen ripped out and tiling removed and also a brand new floor
The hammering, the knocking, the chiselling, the dust
The dust - oh the dust - in the wake of the work
Finds its way to places unseen
in crevices in corners on ledges and sofas
On curtains and carpets and more
The dusting and polishing, the sweeping and Hoovering
Makes no difference it never looks clean.
Sniffing and sneezing, coughing and wheezing
That darn dust gets everywhere
No doubt about it I've definitely felt it
But knock it? - no - I'll not dare!
We've "lived" in our living room for five weeks or more
With two rooms of furniture and boxes to store
kitchen paraphernalia in all shapes and sizes
Where the crockpot and microwave came into their own
and meals were produced In various guises.
The kettle's worn out with the endless brews
Made for the builders who've invaded our home
I'm starting to see that proverbial light
At the end of the tunnel - yes please
The beginning of the end is almost in sight
But not without problems it seems.
Why oh why at the warehouse
when those boxes are packed
Do they not check that all is there
Saving us time in sending it back
So, my kitchen/diner is almost complete, just
A few finishing touches to make
I can't wait to move back into my new abode
And enjoy the PEACE
And Eat cake!
I'll be back again very soon.
