Silly Sunday with Pompoms

pineapples, humour, poetry, pompoms

Penelope PomPom was cool

She didn’t like following the rules

She still wanted to be naughty

Despite being past forty

And just loved acting the fool

***

She kept herself looking good

The envy of the Mums in the hood

With her spiky green hair

And bright pink outerwear

She worked it like nobody could!

***

Her kids just thought her the best

She could twerk and floss with the rest

Their friends would come running

When they saw Penny coming

She would always make them less stressed.

Penelope Pompom has turned the corner and is enjoying life again – maybe a bit too much. 🙂

 

Silly Saturday with Penelope Pompom

pineapple art, humour, poetryOnce Penny had hit middle age

She found it hard to engage

Finding lumps in her custard

Or a ham sandwich without mustard

would sent her off in a rage!

 

Penny once sweet and so calm

Now caused her family alarm

Being so spiky and sour

Miserable and dour

Her twins thought she’s cause them some harm

 

Off to the doctor to find out the cause

Of Penelope’s new character flaws

The hot flushes and stress

Weight gain and night sweats

The symptoms must be menopause!

 

Penny felt cut to the quick

No wonder she always felt sick

Always crabby and tearful

Het up and fearful

This menopause was like a cruel trick

 

She took the kids out for the day

Off down Shelbyville way

The sand and the sea

And her friends’ company

Kept her bad temper at bay!

I took my lovely friend for a surpise day out – we had FUN.

Friends who you can be silly with are precious!

Pineapples from my Garden

Cathy from NanaCathy, knowing my penchant for pineapples kindly sent me a photo of a pineapple door wreath made out of sunflowers, so instead of doing the digging and the weeding as intended, of course I had to have a play. Thank you Cathy for the inspiration, it was fun! 😀

Luckily the weather has been glorious this Easter here in the UK and I have been blissfully gardening each day, so some digging and weeding got done eventually.

Most of my garden is still waiting for much needed attention, but there are little cameos here and there that I love

Self sown cerinthe survived the winter under the espalier pears

cerinthe and espalier pears

Early morning sun through the amalanchier sings spring!

and the randomly planted Brompton Stocks, wallflowers and other self-seeded joys are really perking up in the sunshinewallflowers

I do hope you have been able to enjoy a garden somewhere this Easter.

Pop along to see what other gardeners have been up to at Rambling in the Garden.

Silly Saturday with Mrs Moss

Mrs Moss and her dog Lichen

Mrs Moss was up with the lark

Taking Lichen her dog to the park

They walked everywhere

To get lots of fresh air

And didn’t get home til ‘twas dark!

 

Mossie was a sturdy old stick

Very rarely did she get sick

At seventy years old

Fit, adventurous and bold

She can even still do a high kick!

 

Out and about every day

Visiting places and pals on the way

She was going to tea

With the Shelbys by the sea

And was buying some cake on the way.

So happy to be joining up with Judy Martin again for a Silly Saturday collaboration. I sent  Judy the photo of Mrs Moss and her little dog Lichen and once again she has created a fun story in rhyme for her.

Pop across to see Judy’s new blog and find a link to her book ‘Rhymes of the Times’ and more humorous takes on daily  life.

Our previous Silly Saturdays include Maggie the Pole Dancer, and here she is in racier mode
