Well I'll be dashed!

Well I'll be dashed!
The builders are back.
With lots of white stones,
In a great big sack.

It's been three weeks,
Since they came here last,
Because the rain it fell,
And the wind did blast.

But they're back on track,
with ladders and mortar,
It'll soon be all done,
If I supply enough water!

The kettle is on,
To make them some tea,
Will they finish today,
We'll wait and we'll see.

It's looking quite good now,
Not dowdy and grey,
White pebbles and render,
All rubble's away.

I'm happy it's done,
It's been such a trial,
But now that I look,
I've started to smile.

It's looking quite smart,
T'was quite worth the wait,
Dressed up in it's finery,
And looking so great.

But, I must now admit,
It's been quite a test.
And now I can sit down,
And have a long rest.


  1. Greetings from Chester, UK. I enjoyed reading your poetic piece - well done. Well written with good rhymes.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

  2. Was it expensive? I need a wall pebble dashing

    1. We had several quotes, ranging from £1800 up to a whopping £4500! It pays to shop around.

  3. Fantastic news, I bet now you can breathe a sigh of relief to have things finished off and enjoy the end result! :)
