MUM!!!

MUM!!!

I’ve lost my sheet for food-tech

Have you done me that note?

I can’t find my shoes or my jumper or my coat

No lettuce in my sandwich, please and don’t give me fruit

By the way, it’s hockey and I’ve lost one boot

I need a pound and a cheque and my library book’s due back

Still not found it Mum, yes I’VE CHECKED ON THE RACK

Here’s your kit and your letters, clothes and your food

Don’t give me that look, it’s very, very rude

I love you both, you’re wonderful, now please be on your way,

I’m exhausted already and it’s time to start MY day!

Cathy is the author of the best-selling romantic comedies Ivy Lane, Appleby farm, Conditional Love, Wickham Hall and The Plumberry School of Comfort Food. She lives in a Nottinghamshire village with her family and Pearl, the Cockerpoo. Her recent career as a full-time writer of light-hearted romantic fiction has come as somewhat of a lovely surprise after spending eighteen years running her own marketing agency. However, she has always been an avid reader, hiding her book under the duvet and reading by torchlight. Luckily her husband has now bought her a Kindle with a light, so that’s the end of all that palaver.
