First Line Friday -December 22nd, 2017

Your line for this week is:

Alexi watched the snowfall with narrowed eyes.
If it kept up, they’d all be snowbound, and he could practically guarantee that the atmosphere in the house would be far from jolly the way his family carried on.
It was not his idea to invite them, but that of his lovely (if naive) wife who wanted to entertain the family for their first Christmas as a married couple.
The house was certainly big enough to accommodate them all, but he simply didn’t want them there for more than a day.
However, they had to arrive first, so maybe they would think twice about travelling in the first place and he could have his quiet Christmas afterall.

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.
