Thank You… A MADs Poem… (contains alcohol…naturally)

Thank you ALL for getting me to the finals of the MADs,

Thanks for crying with me, laughing and re-tweeting.
Thank you for letting me bang on about my uterus all day,
Thank you Tanqueray for helping with the healing…

Thanks to my downstairs loo for giving me 5-MINUTES BASTARD PEACE.

Thank you to my husband for putting a lock on it.
Thank you to CBeebies for my 4 o’clock sit down,
Thanks to Peppa for distracting her while I scoff chocolate…

Thanks very much to Spanx for separating my legs from my actual arse.

Thank you secret underwear for hiding my boob-sags.
Thank you twitter and facebook for being my 5am blurry-eyed friend.
Thank you lovely Instagram for filtering out my eye-bags.

Thank you to my daughter for being a f@*king awesome little dude.
Thanks for the hours you spend playing with that tea-set.
Thank you little lady for all the blogging material you provide,
And thank the shitting universe she can’t read yet…

So thanks to every one of you who enjoys my random rants,
Thank you for every comment, every tweet, every grin.
Thanks to everyone who tells me my blog makes them pee their pants,
Let’s just say I owe you all a gin.
