Today’s prompt is: Your worst Christmas.
Christmas Day was on a Saturday, so I had to work Christmas Eve, even though we were allowed to leave the office early.
I felt dreadful, left earlier than everyone else and collapsed into bed the minute I got home.
I was violently sick and couldn’t even keep water down.
Then the other end decided to join in.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Hubby cooked the Christmas Dinner, a succulent duckling with all the trimmings.
The smell made me throw up and the sight of food turned my stomach.
I never got to sample a single bite.
All his efforts gone to waste, making me feel even worse than whatever bug had decided to visit with such lousy timing.
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.
