IMITATION is supposed to be the sincerest form of flattery so I am following Pip’s lead. and think you should do. In my head there is a tune, maybe something festive. Do play along – tune or no tune.

I need more time.
My hair was cut last week.
Pressies are done, not wrapped.
I need to buy a fridge .
And want to make gingerbread but
know I’ll be the only one to eat the LOT.
I have one more decoration to stitch.
And want the dependents to stop
watching DVDs at cinema volume
of their own accord.
I gave a six-pack to the fella who mows
He said VB was his brew.
There have been fights, not in a laneway,
in our house. That happens.
The teen got his school certificate.
Bed linen is mostly unwashed.
I gave up washing the dependents’ sheets this year.
I am paid weekly. Bless.
I think I heard Claire Bowditch on the wireless yesterday.
I ate breakfast at 5.30am and now want fruit toast.
I've been meaning to post about the Things You've Been Meaning To Do
I don’t know what angel chimes are.
I have been thinking about a pedicure – I’ve never had one.
There are always newspapers.
Nope. No chickens here either.
Nor vintage wallpaper.
And I like them too.
We have a dog and a banana tree.
Walls. Check.
Sore feet. Check. Sore neck. Check.
I don’t like Japanese food but then
I don’t know whether I’ve really tried it.
I want yellow SaltWater sandals.
I can’t fill a mug of tea to the top because I’ll spill it.
I hate answering my phone. Don’t phone. I’ll call you.
All out of work lunch ideas.
I have a diary of good ideas.
I have booked flights for a Melbourne holiday in March.
I thought I’d buy Frankie for the train trip home.
I am watching Ashes to Ashes season two.
Now I am done playing with Pip’s list and
hand it over to you.
