Sunday Strange microfiction challenge

I rather like this painting Jane, there seems to be a lot going on over breakfast!

It wasn’t much fun having to stay in bed all the time, but she was nearly over her ailment, and at least had been allowed to have Jack and Kit for company.
She said her prayers every night to thank God for surviving another day and again every morning when breakfast was presented as her appetite was finally beginning to return.
Once again,  she had boiled eggs with toast soldiers and a weak milky cup of tea.
Putting her hands together, she recited her thanks for the food in front of her, thanked the cook for preparing it, and looking up to make sure the maid had vacated the room, thanked Jack and Kit for eating it, as she hated milky tea and boiled eggs in particular.

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
