Waiting....

I've  been waiting all day for a delivery
And its mid afternoon and still nothing has arrived
I've cleaned the fluff from under the bed, 
and there's enough of it to fill a small scatter cushion.
I've bleached the bathroom 
until my head swam with fumes
And 
I've unsucessfully tried to brush George's teeth because his 
halitosis is getting on my tits.

I hate waiting in for the delivery man
They are like a watched kettle

As Ive waited ,,and waited and waited
this wedding telegram from Rachel
Did make me smile

  6. Waiting always puts me into a fit of housecleaning as well.

    The telegram just about sums up the possibilities!

  9. I thought I had all bases covered, but I forgot those little domestic problems called 'pets'.

    Well done Rachel, your telegram is inspired and beautifully executed.

    1. As a blog reader I thought the dogs were so important, and Albert of course, but still had to bring in Chris and John. I loved yours too.

  16. Love the telegrams - still struggling with mine - but there is still some time left.
    Delivery men - don't mention them.

  17. Outstanding telegram. It's a shame that people hardly ever send telegrams these days. I have never sent nor received one.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. They are a thing of the past in the US, Janie. You can't send one for love nor money, as they cease to exist.

  22. Our deliveries have been delayed because of weather. Sometimes living in the middle of nowhere is not a good thing.

    I wish I knew how to send a telegram. Best wishes are coming your way,

  25. Aunt Rachel can't take any more of this. She's having a glass of sherry before breakfast to calm herself. xxx
