Post 800

I didn’t know what to write about today, so posted a couple of ‘shorts’ earlier, then discovered this would be my 800th entry. I couldn’t let that go by without some form of landmark.
Despite my ‘old age’, I haven’t really done very much or visited far and away places, not that I have regrets, just that earlier in my life I either had no inclination or money!

My first trip abroad was our honeymoon in Amsterdam in 1991. I was so excited about having a passport and going to another country, the wedding took second billing (though our wedding night was a hoot!). We went back in 1993 and that was my first trip on a plane, so you can see I was a bit of a late starter in the traveling stakes.
eurodisneyHubby and I have been to Eurodisney, and we were probably two of the biggest kids in our party of three coach loads from work. We had a Social Club and got massive subsidies, so a weekend away (cabin on overnight ferry, one night Eurodisney hotel, 1 and a half days entrance and return ferry trip) all for the price of ยฃ30 a head was exceptional value. I had my silhouette cut out and framed (which is packed away here somewhere) as a memento.

We have also been to Dublin, and had to pay a visit here, even though I don’t like the stuff.

I went on a business trip to Europe, this being Luxembourg, Geneva and Milan then back to London in 4 days. I didn’t see much of Luxembourg, but I did see this

I was also lucky to see one of these for real on a whale watch in Kaikoura:

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.

  4. Good heavens, you HAVE been to some beautiful and memorable places in the world. And I think reviewing back through them is a lovely way to celebrate your posting anniversary. But wow! 800??? You are one prolific writer. Congratulations for your resplendent efforts. Perhaps you should plan a trip to celebrate? ๐Ÿ˜›

    • We’d like to, which is why we got Maggie jabbed up for her doggy passport last year (if things had worked out differently, there was a possibility of spending a week or so abroad with friends) . There are places on the canals and rivers we want to explore once the weather improves. At least we won’t have to worry about packing!

  5. Congrats on 800 posts! I languish at just over 300.

    Also? I am so glad to hear I am not the only one who visited the Guinness factory who didn’t like the product (though I happily partake of other libations)!
