Up at Six

Up at six, wash, walk dog,
Breakfast, make picnic,
Load up, final check,
On the road by the half hour.

First stop,
One hundred and twenty seven miles,
Potty break or three, cup of roadside tea.
Be there by eleven.

Next stop, an hour away,
Lunch perhaps and a potty break,
Arrive by 2.30, meet agent,
This one of main interest.

Final viewing, four to five pm,
Another hour of driving,
Hope weather holds, not hot or cold,
No diversion this week please.

Paperwork trail, directions, details,
Route plotted, time allowed,
Shared driving, watering dog,
Admiring the view? I wish.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
