The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 16/17

Thanks Linda

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “vol.” Find a word with “vol” in it, and use it in your post. Have fun!

Way back in 1985 I invited my Mum and Dad up for Sunday lunch, unbeknown to them that I was in fact doing a buffet for 30 or so people to celebrate their 35th Wedding Anniversary.
I was baking and freezing for weeks, but made a point of a vast volume of prawn
vol-au-vents as my Mum was rather partial to them.

I’d baked a special fruit cake which my boss had iced for me, topping it with red sugar craft carnations as these were the flowers Dad always gave her on their anniversary.
It was a wonderful day, the only time I have known my Dad at a loss for words.

Lovely memories.

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.
