MAGPIE TALES # 162 – Heaven and Hell

“My god you ….kids!”
“What the hell has happened here?”
“Your father and I saved up to have a weekend away, just the two of us to relax, we’ve worked hard, we saved and we left you two in charge?”
“I come home, WE come home to this?”
“Just look at the place, where is the wall. What did you do with the wall? WHERE the hell is the rest of the wall?”
“What the hell is Mogs doing on the stove next to a hot frypan?”
“You could have had the decency to tidy up before we got home, look at the bowl of porridge…is it porridge or oatmeal, I didn’t buy oatmeal?”
“George did we buy oatmeal?”
“AT any rate why is left there?”
“I can’t trust you two for a damn minute can I and can you PLEASE explain what the hell are those white balls all over the garden?”

Sister and brother looked at each other and shrugged.

“Jill, no need to worry tellin’ her about the storm approaching, I think it just hit”.

Our day trawling round the Furniture Shops

And so I be in a writing mood or should I perhaps say mode

Today we ventured furniture shopping to adorn our humble abode

Alas we found nothing that took our fancy so

We came back empty handed not parting with our dough


All we want is a simple buffet not the buffet that means food

A cabinet for kitchen we hunted for and we determinedly perused

Some were made of Australian oak, some were laminate

We baulked at prices, workmanship, it was more than we could take


So we are empty handed not a buffet to our name

And we shall hunt again next week and hopefully strike our claim

For how hard is to shop for one, tis harder you than you think

At least now home and feet put up I can have a bloody drink!
