The Royal Family

We met the Royal Family
About four years ago
Not from a great distance
But right up close, you know.

It was an unplanned meeting
I must say, I was impressed
They looked so poised and regal
(While I felt under-dressed!)

We were on our best behaviour
And promised not to touch
It was sure was nice to meet ‘em
But they didn’t say too much…

Red Shoes

Went to Uluru on a family trip
And escaped the winter blues
Returned with many happy snaps
And a pair of new-look shoes.

Red’s not my usual colour
I never choose it in the store
But this red is oh-so-natural
Courtesy of the great outdoors.

These are now my favourite shoes
The red look completely rocks
But, somehow, I’m not a fan
Of the matching socks…

 
 

Packing Light?

We were packing for a trip
And needed to save space
My hubby and I decided
That we would share a case…
I’m not known for packing light
I do pack lots of stuff!
But, I like to be prepared…
Too much is never “enough”.
So, my hubby had a question
After he surveyed our case
“Is that all you’re taking?!” 
With a shocked look on his face 😮
I had a quiet chuckle then
But didn’t tell him why…
You see, I left all that space
For the “stuff” I planned to buy 😉
 
 

Wrinkles – or Holidays?

Lunched with friends one Sunday
Many things we did discuss
Work, plans, family life..
Age catching up with us.
We’re all approaching fifty
(I must say, we’re mildly shocked)
We don’t want life to pass us by
We want to say life “rocked”.
We spoke of bands we want to see
Of trips that will be great
Wanting to enjoy weekends –
We agreed housework can wait!
A sunny Saturday at the beach 🏖
 
Life’s far too short to worry
About hair that’s turning grey
And when it comes to “fine lines”
We might get to them, one day.
Fight the visible signs of ageing?
We’d rather save our dough 💰
There are so many places to be
And things to do, you know.
One friend nicely summed it up
“Wrinkles – or holidays?”
Given any chance, I’ll pack my bag
And head off – lead the way!
