JJ - Happy Birthday Lizzie for the 19th


I don't often write much
But I'm a co-author here
I don't seem to get time
(But it's more out of fear)

For this is the realm
Of Her Ladyship Lizzie
Who's short, German and bossy
And really quite dizzy

She's got a hubby, 3 sons
And 2 very mad dogs
And up in her eyrie
A collection of frogs

Her broomstick's a beauty
Which she polishes at night
So it gleams and it twinkles
For when she takes flight

If a shadow goes past you
At a really great speed
Don't panic, dear friends
But you need to take heed!

It'll be Lizzie, you see
With the wind in her hair
Trolley loaded on broomstick
On her way to a fair

Where she bargains and haggles
And the stallholders wail
For she barters them down
Until they really go pale

At the prices she pays
For the treasures she's found
She has an eye for a bargain
(And a nose like a hound)

She'll take them back to her eyrie
Where she'll preen and she'll gloat
And she'll pull up the drawbridge
On her very deep moat

She'll post pics on her blog
Of her latest new treasure
She loves them, you see
And it gives her great pleasure

She does all sorts of crafting
While she's up in her eyrie
And she's so good at it all
That it makes me quite teary

She has a real flair
For the things that she does
And the gifts that she makes
Give the new owner a buzz

See, she's kind and she's caring
And she's really quite sweet
(It took guts to say that
And my heart's missed a beat)

Well, I think I'm in trouble
And my time's at an end
So I'll finish by saying
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZZIE, MY FRIEND

JJ xx

I am not sure whether I should kill JJ or kiss her, lolol. I can't believe she has written me a great big poem for my birthday! Thank you JJ, you are quite wonderful really ( even if I have to nag you everyday about certain things ). I am sitting here with a very drippy nose, sore throat, half deaf, sneezing my head off lol, and feeling like I have been steam rollered. Got the worst cold I have had in years, poo, bad timing or what?

Thank you for all your birthday wishes, you lovely lovely people, I wish I could have you all here for a big birthday party. I do hope that I will meet some of you one day, perhaps at our cottage in France. That would be awesome. Now I shall return to my cosy spot on the settee, snuggle under the lankie, cuddle my doggies and have a nice cup of tea, made by my darling husband. Hopefully back to my normal self by Sunday ( gotta go to a boot fair ).
