T’was the night before Christmas – the house wasn’t done
No chance for the poor Robitailles to have fun
Four months they had toiled by day and by night
Their clothing in tatters, their hair looked a fright.
They’d landscaped the garden with digger and truck
When it bogged in the driveway poor Eddie said f*…!
They built stronger muscles from shovelling dirt
Effective for weight loss but hell how it hurt!
The house was all painted in stylish BlackWhite
New tiles, new carpets - it changed overnight.
New showers, new toilets, a stone kitchen bench
Designed to delight the most fussy young wench.
And once the inside was all shiny and clean
They started on fencing, in Karaka green.
Bev painted for hours on trellis and tin
While Ed measured timber and put the posts in.
They’re on the last stages now – new steps and gates
Thankful for all of the help from their mates.
In the month after Christmas it goes on the market
(Assuming they handle the pace and don’t cark it.)
When the work is all done and they get a good price
They can rest and relax then – won’t that be nice?
Wishing all our blog readers a very Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season. See you back here in the New Year when new adventures await!
