Our day in numbers #Prose4T

By | December 5, 2013

One, Two.
Come on my pair of pickles, I love you.

Three, Four.
Time to rush out the door.

Five, Six.
Off to school, hope the lessons are a good mix.

Seven, Eight.
Phew! We’re not late.

Nine, Ten.
Kiss, hug, off you go then.

Eleven, Twelve.
Kids in their schools, I’m off to delve
(Into the delights of a food shop)

Thirteen, Fourteen.
All done, time for a mocha, no caffeine.

Fifteen, Sixteen.
Blog time at my little screen.

Seventeen, Eighteen.
Home. Housework and no rest for the washing machine.

Nineteen, Twenty.
School run time, we’ve done plenty,

Twenty one, Twenty two.
Schools out, a hug, snack time and “how was school for you?”

Twenty three, Twenty four.
Home, sweet home, through our front door.

Funny – the old “one two, buckle my shoe” rhyme is often
the one playing through my head as I race through the day’s
routine. I like your take on it. It lends a neat, if predictable
and slightly insane rhythm to the telling of the day, which is
probably spot on I imagine! 😉

Thanks, I think you’re definitely right about the rhythm and it’s description!

I do not do school runs (yet) but I often struggle to get
out of the house on time to do the nursery run and then rush off to
work. I may write my own version of it to sing when I wheel the
buggy across Edinburgh 🙂

That would be fab if you did 🙂 I did the childminder-station-train-tube-work bit for a while, felt like I was forever chasing my tail! Miss the £ but not the commute.

Thanks lovely, I need to find some reading time, it’s been zero with D being off poorly. Lots of cuddles though 🙂

Fab! I love how it amounts to how many hours there are in a
day! This is great 🙂 Thanks for linking to Prose for Thought
