Just Coffee, Thanks!

Up early and we broke our fast
With friends who sent us to there,
And not a bad place for a blast,
Or having quite a do there!

Then on to sports shops; got a strap
A broken one replacing,
With extra watch thrown in to cap
A good deal in the making.

Three straps and watch were so much less
Than Amazon were asking
For just one strap, so I confess
In satisfaction basking.

Spring cover for the trampoline
Was next on the agenda;
Spare trampoline is on the scene —
For that I am a vendor!

I only hope the cover will
Enable me to sell it
For enough to meet that bill,
And make, on rest, as well bit!

Took Loki on the lead to range
Flea market’s wide expanses,
It felt more than a little strange
To curb his wild advances.

Dried fruit and nuts galore I got
For favourite breakfast making,
I do confess it is a lot
My breakfasts now are taking.

We have enough kids to be going on with — just the coffee will be fine. Or are the kids a menu item?

Where one sits and noshes.

And part of what keeps the kids out of hair . . .

Later, the aquisision of more flea food and anti-pong. Note the price of long socks — R40 for 3 pairs!

    It’s like that sign seen outside traditional purveyors of meat on British high streets: FAMILY BUTCHER. Rather ambiguous, I always think, a butcher for families or of families? Ditto a secondhand shop: a specialist in indicators for portable timepieces or perhaps a sideline for those butchers of families?!
