DAY 67. GROUNDHOG DAY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s hard coming up with new ideas every day  so I hope you will forgive me if I post something you may have already seen.  As far as I’m aware, it only had one view at the time so I think it’s worth posting again.

I’m a great one for making lists.  If I can’t sleep at night, I get out of bed and make a list of everything that’s on my mind.

I’ve even been known to make notes on a bog roll – no wonder the supermarkets are running out of loo paper!

Right now my life is list-less.  My diary for 2020 is full of crossings out. Yours too. The only things on it are Zoom dates, live theatre streamings and food deliveries. Every day is like groundhog day.

Here’s a list I wrote BC – Before Covid – of things to do before it’s too late. It’s was written very much with tongue in  cheek.  However, I look at it now and think what I would give just to be able to have a swim in the Med – let alone water ski!

TO DO

Should I dye my hair red

and paint my toenails blue

I need to make a to do list

There’s still such a lot to do

I’ve never abseiled

Or inter-railed

Or paddled a canoe

I need to make a to do list

There’s still such a lot to do

I’ve never walked a tightrope

Or even stood on my head

I’ve never danced the tango

Or water skied on the Med

I’ve never had a piercing

Not even a tattoo

I need to make a to do list

There’s such a lot to do

I’ve never bungeed from a plane

Or captained a yacht crew

I need to make a to do list

There’s such a lot to do

And what about a menage a trois

A cougar I could be

Or better still an early night

watching a DVD

I think I will go back to bed

and have a cup of tea.

I’m taking a break from blogging this weekend. Will be back on Monday. Stay well.

  1. Worth reposting, Andrea. I hadn’t read it before. We need this humour now. I have tried but I can’t imagine you with red hair. Bx
