A Work Mother

‘Twas my birthday recently
The big 5-0 is drawing near
I’m an “oldie” where I work
That much is very clear!

My colleagues are barely 20
(You can do the sums…)
Just the other day, they said
“You could be our Mum!”

I hope I can be useful, and
Make them feel inspired
I just wish I had their energy
Instead of feeling tired!

Tea?

I like a coffee now and then
But I drink much more tea
I like it made a certain way
Oh, my children pick on me!

Milk in first, I take it weak
You should hear my daughter
“Mum, that’s not a cup of tea
What you’ve got is dirty water!”

The taunting goes on and on
How I wish it would stop…
“Mum doesn’t dunk her tea bags
She waves them over the top!”

They always say they’re joking
But, I just don’t buy it…
So, I’ll take my cup of tea
And go sit somewhere quiet!

The Plane Trip (or “Being a Spoilsport!”)

We boarded a domestic flight
Found our seats in a short while
My hubby asked “Want the middle?
Or would you prefer the aisle?”

I glanced upon the window seat
There sat a blonde goddess
Tanned, thin, full of grace…
And wearing a short dress.

I turned to my dear husband
Replied with a wry smile
“How about I take the middle
And you, hon, take the aisle?”

We settled down into our seats
And as I fastened up my buckle
I glanced at her, then at him
And had a quiet chuckle.

New Year’s Resolutions 2019

So many resolutions
Which should I choose?
Drink far more water
But much less booze?

Eat plenty of vegies
And less junk food?
Reduce stress levels
To improve my mood?

Cut down on waste
To be more “green”?
Re-do the garden
Keep the house clean?

Do more exercise
To work on my health?
Cut down on spending
To work on my wealth?

Be more organised
To get “stuff” done
Hang on a minute…
These are no fun!!

Oh, those resolutions
Are making me queasy
Perhaps I’ll resolve
To take this year easy

To spend more time
Relaxing by the beach
Now there’s a life goal
I’ll be happy to reach!
