A Gin Day
It’s a day that started badly
The kind of day that you can’t win.
It’s a day that has you asking
‘Can my cornflakes come with gin?’
You see I love my dear sweet boy,
But can’t abide his evil twin.
Till he returns from where he’s hiding,
I’ll be day-dreaming of gin.
I’m sure the treatment I’m being given,
Is deserved of mortal sin.
Thus the time that I am having,
Makes me ponder pre-noon gin.
And yet it seems as if it’s all my fault,
‘You’d like to put ME in the bin?’
Well, ha that sounds, not half so bad
Just chuck me in some gin.
Alas I know I need to ride it out,
And take it on the chin,
I’m not alone, won’t be without
My loyal, good friend gin.
But what’s this; A yes, co-operation?
A loving, charming grin?
He’s back, all’s well, let’s not despair,
Mind you let’s keep the gin :)

Oh yes we all have those days! Sometimes the only reason I don’t touch the vodka is because I have to drive later that day.
Oh this sounds familiar! Wine in my case though x
Ha! Love this Katie!
Thanks Morgana x
Aren’t most days gin days? Or wine days….or certainly chocolate days!
Yep actually – i should probably adapt the title to just ‘A Day’
Yep, I think I am currently having a night and day just like that! Great song! Can we have a cherry, happy gin song too? We can call it #BritMumsSoundtrack
I love this post! Great start to BadMumsClub xx
Fab poem – loving the #BritMumsSoundtrack idea too! If I didn’t have to drive for school pick-up, I’d be drinking in the shower. x
Gin in the bin. Sounds alright to me ;) xx
ha me too! x
I bloody hate gin! But if I change that word to wine or beer then I am totally with you! x
lol yep either would do Jess :)
You, my dear Katie, are a bloody genius! Love this poem so much.
Thanks Alison :)
hehehe, love this! Whenever they threaten to send me into the hall in retaliation to my threats I always think I’d quite like 31 minutes in the hall with my bottle of Hendricks! x
er yep that sounds like utter bliss! x
isn’t this every day… ?
Shhhh i’m trying to keep up my semi respectable rep ;)
Oh this is so wicked! Love it :)
:)) ta Dean x
Every day is a wine day in this house ; )
High five! x
I hate gin. But it sometimes feel the same about vodka, Jaegermeister, rum or fizz. ;) especially after the week I have had x
Don’t worry that all works also – although you are weird for not liking gin ;)
Love it. I often have wishful thinking gin on coco pops mornings. …..
Every other day though I’m not a gin person.
LOVE it! I spend my day dreaming of chocolate though – sodding dairy intolerant toddler! x
Haha that’s awesome, most days seem that in our house lately
I’m the same as Katie, gin makes me blue-vodka, wine, bubbles, I’m there-hilarious poem!
all kinds of awesomness!
Oh my girl has pushed me close to the edge so many times. She frustrates me so much! I love her but jeez. She can’t half push my buttons x
I use wine and chocolate to help me cope with the tantrums and craziness. There are days I want to start drinking at 4pm. :)
No gin for me either, but throw in some chocolate cake and you’ve got it nailed!
