Roses are red
Tulips are yellow
My car is dirty
My current mood is mellow.
Birds are chirpy
The sky is blue
Rodney is happy
And me too
The fence needs painting
The hallway as well
I can’t find a toy
In the fridge there’s a broken shelf
Hubby is ill
My children are great
Spud won’t go out
My house is in a clean state
There’s lots to do
Not enough hours in the day
But things are going wonderful
No time for work, just play!
Tuesdays are second
They make Mondays better,
Only in hindsight though
Then Wednesdays are greater.
Tuesdays tend to come around
Slow as a snail,
Not much goes on, I find
Mostly checking emails.
Before I know it
The evening has arrived,
The middle of the week
Has turned up right before my eyes.
My weeks fly by
Yet there are slow times too,
But I’m happy with this balance
Tuesdays, I’m pleased to see you.
While my family rest,
I try my best,
At wanting to work and write.
My home is my nest,
But as I type and press,
I’m tired and ready for night.
If I can write a little each day,
I can give myself leeway,
To call myself a writer.
It’s finding the middle
Of a hectic life, pickle!
But on I must. I’m a fighter.
The sun has many roles to play,
From earths pivot to ruler of all.
Then there’s the light maker, the ultimate protector,
Yet in the sky it always looks so small.
We take it for granted,
Without it we would not be here.
So imagine my surprise to look up and find,
A sunny moon appear!
My eldest finds crying,
The thing that helps him win.
But when he starts, I don’t agree,
And have to bear it and grin.
Sometimes I turn to shouting,
And putting him in his place.
It’s the only thing that stops
The tears from rolling down his face.
He goes straight to crying,
No attempt at negotiating or compromise.
I explain that adults do this,
For we can’t get our way by letting floods pour from our eyes.
Then I think if I cried every time I didn’t get my way,
Surely the world would be better?
We’d show emotions all the time
With our eyes getting wetter and wetter?
In a perfect world maybe?!
When my back feels good,
It’s great up and down my spine.
But for months I’ve had this pain,
A change to this, was about time!
Not for relaxing but for fixing,
So an appointment with a physio I got.
She really did work her wonders,
And got rid of the bunched up knots!
Then something happened later that evening,
Lately my fingers have been frozen to the core.
I sat there and all of a sudden they felt hot and normal,
Ah, relief. Goodbye pain, no more!
My body feels like everything’s working,
As it mostly should.
Next time I’ll never ignore my aches and pains,
The physio does extremely good!
Thank you to Laura at realign for sorting my back out. Greatly appreciated!
He begs for food
Though he has just eaten
‘Give me a treat mummy’
My victory has been beaten.
His eyes show cuteness
Yet his tummy shows round
I have to be careful
When he does nothing but hound.
He gets lots of cuddles
Play time too
But how do I stop
This cat from getting huge?!
