Cleaning the Kitchen
It is a bit of an epic, but it felt a very long day, needed a brandy at the end.
Cleaning the Kitchen
My sight is much improved so there was not any doubt
Dirty marks on kitchen units, should be sorted out
I got my cleaning products, plus appliance made for steaming’
Thought a few hours later, it would all be gleaming’
So I put a talking book on, getting really in my stride
Sorted through the cupboards, to tidy up inside
Plugged the steamer in, waited till it hissed
Very, very handy, to sort out bits you’d missed
Shifted anything, that could get in the way
Then opened up the nozzle, to give a little spray
Everything went dark ,all the lights went out
Fridge stopped humming, story halted, really could hear nowt
I tried flipping the fuse, didn’t have any luck
Baffled and confused, I was truly stuck
Phoned the electrician, all that he could say
Sorry I’m in Anglesey, which is quite far away
He told me some sparks names, had no numbers but don’t fret
With a bit of searching, you can find ‘em via net
Well that was a dilemma, as you probably know
Without electricity supply, google just won’t go
Dialling up the gardener, a very helpful chap
Said hang on for half a mo’, I’ll come and sort that crap
Well he made a splendid effort, tho’ gave up in the end
The next thing that I thought to do, was go and phone a friend
She and her husband, had excellent advice
Using your hairdryer, waft it over once or twice
A dilemma here also, as you already know
Without electricity, it will just refuse to blow
After checking upstairs sockets, I shouted out with glee
Could plug my extensions in, (alas I needed three)
Trailed them downstairs, spent ages wafting air
Into little plug holes, using tender loving care
After seven hours effort, flicked fuse up and it stayed
Bringing me an answer, to the payers I had made
Now my freezers on, network fine, and fridge is lit
So if the tiles get muck on them, I am just leaving it
They’ll get a wipe with something, maybe a dry cloth
As for the flippin’ steamer, well the darn things stayin’ off
