I’d like to apologise for still not being up to date with my A2Z blog. ( I’m trying. I’m trying)
Here goes with the letter ‘N’ and Dublin wit at it’s best
For those of you not from Dublin, I’d like to explain about Nelly’s room. When I was growing up and an item could not be found and you asked someone had they seen it. A common smart arse response was ”Did you look up in Nelly’s room behind the wallpaper?” In other words, they hadn’t a clue where your lost shoe/sock/earring was and they couldn’t actually care less either 🙂 A lot of misplaced items remained forever behind the wallpaper in Nelly’s room.
Up in Nelly’s room behind the wallpaper
”I lost my specs, they can’t be found
I must have dropped them on the ground”
Me ma she’s such a scatterbrain
She probably left them on the train
”Did you look up in Nelly’s room behind the wallpaper?’
My shot at sarcasm did not escape her
We searched up high,
We searched down low
But we didn’t really have that far to go
As she left the room to go to bed
I spied them sitting on her head!
