Apple Crumble


It was such a lovely weekend, and as usual, I played host,

We had visitors to lunch and so I cooked a Sunday roast,

My guests had plates stuffed full of food, but I was very good,

I had no roast potatoes and just one small Yorkshire Pud,

My tummy wasn’t happy; I could hear a distant rumble,

And lurking in the oven was a golden apple crumble

My husband said “You having some?” I took a little peek,

It looked gorgeous, I decided that I’d diet another week,

The crumble didn’t last long when it landed on my plate,

With lots of clotted cream on top, it really tasted great,

And then I heard a funny noise, whilst finishing up the cream,

My trousers were protesting, and they’d ripped right at the seam

Then I remembered my new product; my brand new shiny ‘Bosch’

Isn’t it a nuisance when clothes shrink whilst in the wash?
