My alarm clock was set to go off at eight When I lurched out of bed oh heck I was late Forgot to move on the clock for an hour I was late for work – no time for a shower I dashed to get dressed at the speed of light My son was laughing - he could see my plight I ran to the bathroom to clean my teeth and face My car keys were hiding, not in their usual place Ran to the car in my receptionist attire To my horror I found I had a flat tyre Got out the jack and changed the spare wheel Jumped in the car how the tyres did squeal Drove to the office into the parking lot But why it was empty – oh no I forgot…. Bank holiday the first week of May BOTHERATION was all I could say Drove home slowly, just like a snail Just in time to open the mail Then I did: The washing and ironing, cleaning and cooking, (had a few chocolates when no one was looking) the weeding and hoeing, planted some seeds that needed sowing, washed the car and mowed the lawn then to the hairdresser to have my hair shorn, sat down with a book and had a cup of tea - need a bit of time relaxation for me, Then I washed and dried the dishes, cleaned out and fed the kid’s goldfishes bathed the kids and made them a snack got in the shower and rubbed my aching back adjusted the alarm for the right time in the morning crawled into bed and then started snoring Tomorrow when I go back into work I won’t tell them my error or I’ll look a jerk! 05~11~15 Fictional write for Contest: Today I Accomplished Sponsor Sara Kendrick

Only women can concentrate on three things at a time,and not one.We are multi -taskers sweet bun: ).Favouring this poem dear Jan.It put up a smile on my face.The worst thing I ever did was going out wearing my bed slippers instead of myshoes.With my skirt and bed slippers I was quite a catch : ) lol
