A wee bit sad,
Little things that make this housewife cheer,
Washing on the line
Because the weather’s fine,
Might be sad but grinning ear to ear. 🙂
Knickers in the breeze,
Drying day to please,
Simple pleasures really are my thing,
Another load is on,
Some sunshine, can’t go wrong,
Writing silly ditties in between.
Sun just rocks my socks,
Getting my rocks off,
Washing, scrubbing, sad act that I am,
Fluttering in the air,
Like laundry hung out there,
Playing housewife just because I can.
Very simply true,
‘Tween you ‘n’ me, we two,
Teaching keeps me busy all term time, so
When holidays roll round,
Or on weekends, I’ll be found,
Doing what all other housewives do.
Catching up on chores,
Risking kids be bored
By thankless tasks that make their eyeballs roll,
Think that I’m a fool?
Well, here’s the golden rule,
Bribe them, sugar spoonful, that’s the goal.
They’ll thank me come the day
They learned how to play
Working in the sunshine, way cool gig,
For in between each bout
We’re running all about
Learning garden games; they love ‘Pole Tig’.
So yeah, chores can be some fun
And when the chores are done
Mary Poppins’ bag holds every trick
A charm or two inside,
Stretch it open wide,
Imagination, smiles that make kids tick.
No lament from me,
‘Cause I have got the key,
Brighter days are here along with Spring,
Pegging out the days,
Working while we play,
Mummy’s home from school. I guess part-time.
