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.
