Well, that song is about a boy called Billy and his quest for a wife
I remember my Dad used to sing it when we were young
but it was never the same – it always seemed to have different verses
some involved tickling and others asking could the girl do this and that around the home
Sometimes he was just Billy Boy other times Charming Billy
So after a little digging I found out there are different versions
This one is more like Dad’s version
but there are others
Whats this all about you ask?
Where’ve I been and what have I been doing?
I’ve been at home concentrating on ‘wifely duties’ bringing things back to normal again
which has involved taking advantage of sunny weather and doing some ironing

These are my summer uniform – shorts and tshirts!
Getting in the swing of all the declutter and tidy the cupboards challenges
going on in blogland
Gill at That British Woman is particularly keen on this one.
The kitchen was my choice this week
These two cupboards in particular
They weren’t that bad just a case of rearranging
and returning so I could see where things were
One of Dh’s good friends harvested some of his lemon for me
They are all sqeezed and now I have a good stock of my depleted ice cube size blocks
in the freezer for my morning drink
A lot of time has been spent on making gifts for later in the year
Two sets of dishcloths knitted for a special friend who appreciates them
Some little beaded angels and also some ‘thong’ type bookmarks
and I’ve also started on fingerless mittens for friends overseas
‘Cose when Christmas comes around it’s cold wherre they live.
After all that I spent some time outside eating and reading and taking it easy lol
Now this room (which has totally got out of hand ) is on the list for next week
We lifted the bed for a reason and it just became a dumping ground
Its been so convenient to open the door and store things on the floor instead of putting them awaye
Think I’m going to need a few tea breaks while I’m doing it lol
Edited to add:
Good on ya Mum – you’re the only one
that noticed my unintentional mistake
Yes, photo no. 3 is an ‘after’ shot.
I’d loaded them all on the blog and even published before I realised what I had done.
And of course by then I’d deleted the ‘before’ one both from the camera and the computer:((
