And so we’re off

We were up early, and I mean early. Even the bird wasn’t awake so all worms were safe in their casts.
We’d packed everything and prepared as best we could the preceding day, which included foody treats for MOH and pressies for my Mum.

The plan was to drive straight to the nursing home, where Hubby would drop me off and then go and do some ‘Us’ shopping for Christmas in Poole. He then intended to take Maggie for a much needed walk in Hamworthy Park and give her some quality time having been cooped up in the car for so long.

It’s difficult buying for my Mum, especially now, so I’ve got her a few goodies and a couple of crossword books as I know she enjoys doing them. I’ve written a poem for Christmas again this year and I laminated it on some matching backing card in the kit I made her Christmas Card from. I posted that by recorded delivery as it’s a One -off just in case we didn’t get to see her because of the bad weather.

I have another unique gift for her though, and that is a sea shell I picked up some time ago.
We’ve given it a coat of varnish to preserve it, as we have the others I’ve found in various stages of decomposition.
This is the only one I have found complete, and my logic is if Mum can’t come to the beach  we’ll take the beach to her.

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.
