The Week Before Christmas; And a Plan Reveal
Twas the week before Christmas, and all through our gaff,
Was strewn parts of our bathroom; a bath tap, a bath.
The tiling’s been finished and grouted, with care,
In the hope that a shower screen soon would hang there.
The toilet’s been fitted and plumbed to the mains,
While full flush (or half flush) now runs down the drains.
Yet dressed in our PJ’s, awake through the night,
We still run down the stairs just to go for a… tinkle.
When from downstairs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Out of the bedroom I flew far too fast,
Tripping over the carpet, the bath tap, the bath.
The moon in the window, of the hallway below,
Lit a vision of Brian, who’d just stubbed his toe.
The shower screen (unbroken) lay flat on the floor,
The mess is so bad, WE CAN’T TAKE ANY MORE.
To cut short this story, the house is a mess,
The bathroom (unfinished) is causing much stress.
But I’ve drawn up a plan, so please, do not worry!
Just, don’t think that we’ll get to this stage in a hurry!
If you like what you see, then please, let me know,
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a ‘HO HO’.
Merry Christmas everyone,
Much love, Malcolm (and Brian!) xx
