A little ditty ….

Hi everyone,  it’s a lovely evening here after a bit of a drizzly day.
We’ve just had a nice walk with the dog so I’m hoping hubby will settle to watch the tv so I can go and craft for a couple of hours!

All you ladies that say you’re married to such understanding men are very lucky, my husband needs a hobby of his own I think so that he’s not wanting to spend all his spare time with me. I’m desperately trying to get him interested in something that will be very time consuming lol!!

I’ve had this little poem on my computer for about 10 years, it says author unknown and I’ve no idea where I got it from but I thought I would share it with you;

An ode to my crafty wife

She learned to stamp on Monday
Her embossing was quite fine
She forgot to make the dinner
So we went out to dine

She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
She says they are a must
They really are quite lovely
But she forgot to dust

On Wednesday it was birthday cards
She says that chalking’s fun
Pens and inks and watercolours
But the laundry wasn’t done

Her craft class was on Thursday
Using blue and green and red
She must have been so engrossed
That she never made the bed

It was shaker cards on Friday
Using techniques she just adores
But she never seemed to notice
The crumbs on all the floors

I found a maid on Saturday
My week is now complete
My wife can craft the hours away
The house will still be neat

It’s already round to Sunday
And my forehead’s feeling damp
I cursed, I raved, and I ranted ….
The Maid has learned to stamp!!!

Isn’t it great!!
I hope that made you smile   …and enjoy the rest of your evening everyone
