One Year On

This time last year, I was on crutches.
This year, I have just got back from walking the dog.
Well, I say ‘just’, when in truth I have walked the dog, emptied our loo cassette and swept through the boat whilst Hubby’s been doing the laundry.

Valentine’s Day for us is like any normal day. We don’t ‘do’ cards (unless I’ve made one), chocolates or flowers as a rule as we are angered by the profiteering that goes on at this time. Anyway, we don’t need a Special Day to say ‘I Love You’. Every day is special and full of love, just varying degrees!
Hubby insisted I treat myself to a bunch of daffs for 99p a couple of weeks ago.
They were tiny tight green torpedo buds and the label said guaranteed to last 5 days. Well, mine lasted 10, so definitely good value for money.

By the Space Ship tree they are yellow and white, and it looks like there will be a huge show of daffodils in a week or so as the bright green blades are like miniature spears pointing up to the sky.

We may have a take out to celebrate the day, but it’s more than likely I’ll cook something, though I did promise a hot breakfast this morning. With midday approaching, I shall combine the two and if this beautiful sunshine holds, we shall be walking along the lock this afternoon.
Who knows, we may find our way to the tea rooms and settle down for a coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Now that is definitely a treat!

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.

    Totally agree with the sentiments expressed. Why should we let commercialism dictate that we only celebrate on one day a year? If you only express appreciation for someone annually on a specified day, I would have to question the relationship! Have a wonderful day (well at least what’s left of it where you are! 🙂
