Wash Day Blues

We all get those wash days blues
Ironing clothes and washing shoes
I wish that I could iron quicker
Baggy shorts and blooming knickers

When you think you’re near the end
In comes your son and his best friend
He grabs the shirt that you've just done
And just discards the other one

The hairs on your neck begin to raise
And a few choice words were put in place
The door slams as he goes out
I’m sure he is off to sit and pout

I know the shirt must be worn some day
But at least wait till I've put it away
Hours pass the ironing done
Sitting relaxing just for once

Peace and calm is all around
When I hear the door handle's clicking sound
In comes my son and sits right down
Then he murmured a little sound

I love you mum you work so hard
Ironing clothes to brushing the yard
Never mind son I love you to
We'll put it down to the wash day blues

Hope your Saturday was more fun than mine or did you have to get down to those chores too?

Lots of Love Arwedd xx

  3. Sick with a stinking cold only making meals, washing up, feeding and cleaning my rescue pigeons, picking some wild ramps, feeding cats and injecting the diabetic one. I needed rest and sleep today.

  5. Nice to know we all have those days. Ironing is my one pet hate. But unless we all want to look like scruff bags it's something I have to do.

    1. Ironing is the very worst of the chores to be donw. If I could afford to pay anyone to do anything it would be that. Haha.

  6. I got up to date with the ironing yesterday, I'm on my third load of washing today so I'll have another pile of ironing to do again soon.

  7. Ironing done yesterday, crocheting done today - I'm determined to finish it. Getting a bit bog-eyed now though.
