Dawn of a New Day

We have had a day off from house hunting, enjoying the company of our friend and our dogs as we sat on the docks in Bristol over a bacon and egg sarnie watching the world go by (and wishing we were going with them) .

Tonight it is the WC final, and all three of us are bored (both dogs are asleep), so much so that an early night is looking as tempting as last night when we gave up on the third/fourth place playoff between Holland and Brazil.

My brother called from NZ on Friday and I was on the phone for almost an hour. He has boosted our spirits, wishes he was closer, and if he could ensure we would qualify for citizenship/residency, we would be on the plane tomorrow. However, we have too much against us (no qualifications, too old, not enough money to name just a few) to take such a chance which is more than likely to result in us being deported with nothing, even though he and his wife would fight for us (more money, which neither he or us have).
He has however encouraged us to pursue another line, and knows that Hubby and I work well as a team and have never let anything totally defeat us.  EVER.

Our friend is being equally supportive, and we are here for a while to follow up our enquiries. I am so lucky to have three such wonderful men in my life.  🙂


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
