Woke up this morning - had a dreadful shock I had not set the alarm on my clock Swore until the air turned blue - I’d missed my job interview! My family think I’m a laughing stock Got phoned this morning everything’s fine - Was offered a job by a friend of mine Any hours I choose I simply can’t lose I’m a ‘secret shopper’ my job’s divine! Contest- it was one of those mornings. Sponsor Sara Kendrick 03~05~16

Very witty, Jan:) I too hate being late, thus I'm usually extra early, and I don't rely on alarm clocks, they give you a false sense of security! hugs // paul

I've overslept many a morning for work. Thankfully, my boss was very tolerant. Thanks for reading about Fanny. What does it mean to you British? Best wishes in the contest. / M
