To Do.....

There is still a crack in the toilet after the "chase the rat" incident,
And we need Lino laying on the kitchen floor.
The grandfather clock in the living room has never ticked a tock since it arrived six years ago
And the front windows of the cottage need painting before summer.
The hot water tank needs an electrician's overhaul
The Berlingo is ready for it's MOT
And Bosoms has to fenced after all the badgers will be running amok on the field very soon.

The hens need worming
Albert needs a dose too
And William's anal glands are in need of a squeeze on the kitchen table under a strong spotlight of course
Oh I have just remembered, several of the spotlights need changing.

I am overdue for a dentist review,
The rubbish in the outhouse needs a trip to the tip,
And it's almost Chris' birthday
I need to sort out his "surprise" and have no idea what to do as yet

Normal " stuff" .......we all have it to do it
Jobs need to be ticked off, and things need to be done
So this morning , sat at the kitchen table with a coffee I have made my BIG LIST of " to dos"
It covers a whole sheet of A4

I have just re read it.......
Sigh
I need another mug of coffee.............

Oh no....not the kitchen table thing again!

  8. "Normal " stuff" .......we all have it to do it" erm no...I've never had to squeeze any animals arse, on the kitchen table or anywhere else...nor have I had to worm hens, or even a dog and I've certainly never ring fenced any Bosoms of any sort...you list is rather longer and eclectic than most me thinks..

  16. I write a long list and then add a couple of things that I've already done so that I can cross them off straight away ... makes me feel better even if it is stupid!

  17. What is this thing called making lists - in my house lists are made to be ignored.

  20. I must say squeezing a dog's anal glands on the kitchen table is something that never gets on my lists.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Priorities John, priorities.
    Our vet told us that canned pumpkin (with only pumpkin and no spices)can help with that whole anal gland thingy!! It is bulky and can help to push against the sac on the way out!! There! May help. Also weight may be an issue as with Sophie over the winter....gained a few pounds of fat which prevents the gland from working properly. I'll let you know how it goes from this end (no pun intended!!).

  22. We all have lists, but I have never EVER had a list like that :)

  24. definitely not the kitchen table thing again :D

    well all I can say is you better get cracking on that "to do" list as I had ought on my own list...I did get the recycle stuff taken to the thrift store and the filing done...then every thing just bogged down :D

  25. Does a scotch egg go with coffee? I might give it a go now you've got me hooked, you egg pusher you. I'll be hanging round on street corners in Chagford asking for "a few pence for a scotch one mate?"
