COUNTDOWN TO MOVING (7)

COUNTDOWN TO MOVING:

Seven days to go
Before the big day.
With the sun high in the sky
I went shopping today.

I needed a bed for my new apartment,
Saw one yesterday that took my eye.
So decided overnight
That would be the one I would buy.

I paid the assistant,
Arranged to have it delivered on moving day,
Must have a comfortable bed,
My weary head to lay.

That done and dusted,
I espied a cabinet for my pc.
Well, If I was having a new home,
So must my pc.

Had a coffee before walking home,
Got a change of address form .
Spent the afternoon filling it in.
Not feeling as forlorn.

Suddenly realising that Spring
Is not far away.
A new home, blossom on the trees
And son John flying to the UK.

Life is at last looking up
At the end of today.
With a prayer of gratitude,
In my bed I will lay.

    1. Busy yes, but exciting no as I don't have a soul to hep me on the day of the move .

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog for Patricia Wood's guest post, Yvonne. You must be looking foward to spring as much as I am. But, even though my tulips and even my gladiolus are peeking through the ground, we expect about 5 inches of snow this weekend.

    Congratulations on your upcoming move. That can be a big upheaval in your life, but it sounds like you're ready.

  10. Yes Gregg, good to have found a place but to be honest am scared of moving to where I don't know anyone, and still my kids won't help me.
    Good to hear from you.
