Twiddle Thumbs - Not on Your Life!

Twiddle Thumbs?  Not on Your Life!

I’ve sorted the files.
They’re all up to date.
Then polished the wood
So clean as a slate!

Get the screens down for me
And I’ll wash the windows,
Clean it all just so good -
Sore now bone and sinew!

Those glass doors need a scrub.
Make balcony look clean.
About kitchen storage -
Needs cleaning NOW - I mean!

Washed all of the glass things
And polished the dresser -
Reset the old  hi-fi
To make it seem better.

Groceries delivered -
Most of them are in stock.
Friends daughter ‘s a good “sub”
Free days- not on a clock.  

I like to read, but I can’t just sit !
Get up and exercise!!!!
