First Line Friday -September 15th 2017

Thanks Dylan.

Our line for this week is:

“Well, I didn’t want tea anyway.” 

The tea had been left to grow cold by the bedside and she was sulking.
He sighed, taking the tray out of the room and went downstairs.
Drinking his own cuppa over breakfast, he waited for the expected thump on the floor demanding his attention.
He made allowances though, knowing how frustrated she was being laid up after her fall.
Complete bed rest the doctors had said. He’d always done the housework, shopping and cooking, so ‘keeping house’ wasn’t an issue. In fact, he quite enjoyed it, even more so now as she wasn’t forever getting in his way making snide criticisms.
He loved her unconditionally, in sickness and in health and all that, but there were times!
The thump knocked him out of his thoughts and he stood.
‘Yes dear?’ he called.
‘Where’s my tea Bill?’ she shrilled.

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
