As an apology for the very dull post about tea towels (below), I thought the least I could do would be to provide this golden opportunity to win one (a nice one).
All you have to do (all, she says...) is write a limerick on the subject of dull presents/unwanted gifts/that kind of thing, and post it on the comments here, and the winner will receive this magnificent prize in about a week's time. I'm away triplet-minding from tomorrow afternoon until Monday, so I hope there will be some brilliant limericks to read (and there certainly were, the last time I did this) when I get back...
On the other hand, if no-one enters, I shan't have to buy the tea towel.

I was given a gift-wrapped boxReplyDelete
containing a pair of socks
I raised my head
and simply said
this is absolutely ....
No, sorry but I can't find a final rhyme.
"The last straw?"ReplyDelete
A sad (but true) tale :ReplyDelete
A friend I'd not seen for years
Sent me a collection of beers
But sad to state
Their sell-by date
Was a decade or two in arrears.
With her IQ not quite up to speedReplyDelete
And her brain-box the size of a bead,
Dotty stared with distaste
At the proffered book-case,
"Now I'll 'ave to buy somefink to read."
(Also sad but true.)
Okay - here goes!ReplyDelete
The present looked shiny and bright
And sparkled right through the night.
By morning it died -
The label had lied -
For the battery ran out of light.
Every year a gift wrapped box from my GranReplyDelete
To be greeted with delight , if I can
Opens to reveal
Needles and a large cotton reel
When all I really want is a man .
I know ... but it does at least rhyme !
Patsy - good (if unfinished) try!ReplyDelete
Alan - brilliant!
Joanna - I love it!
Rosemary - well done (can a battery run out of light?).
S&S - I love it, although it's a bit odd!
Reults to be announced...
Can't decide between Alan and Joanna. Both great, but I do love Joanna's last line.....Joanna by a short head if you threatened me with a gun.ReplyDelete
