Best laid plans of mice and men(women)

Woke today with all good intentions,

’To bake a cake’

The recipe was not at hand,

to check the web was my great plan,

Then on I go clicking here and there and found myself,

you guessed it here!

I replied to one, then another caught my eye,

So there I was with ‘man’s’ best plans ’

Enjoying life in RA land,

Finding out what ‘rocks ones boat’

Oh yes; its MTX of course,

Anyway enough’s enough,

so out I bed I got,

I’ve boiled the fruit,

it’s cooling now,

The coffee date all planned for 11

has shifted to maybe never,

As my get up and go

has got up and gone,

I’m back again to RA land.

Keep smiling it’s only 10.30 the rest of the day is yet to come….

Love Carol
