Joelle’s tales: Tell me a tale in 120 words: January 2018

Today’s prompt is:  A new year’s resolution you’ve never been able to keep.
Not being one for resolutions either past or present, the usual lose weight or give up smoking are probably the two most attempted ‘failures’.
In the end, quitting smoking turned out to be simple, and didn’t need the ringing in of the new year to succeed, just a marriage licence in 1991!
I’ve made promises to myself not to bite my nails, but since meeting Hubby, that hasn’t been an issue either.
Normally an easy going person, it takes a fair bit for me to lose it, so anger management is sort of half and half.
I’m going to go with Mug though.
I try my best not to let people take advantage of me, but hey, I’m a nice gal!

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! 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.

    I can see your hubby is making you take good care of you. I’m a nice gal too, but I’m tired of people taking advantage of me, so this year I decided to get rid of the ‘nice’ and be only a gal. 🙂

    Thanks for doing #TMAT120 again this year. 🙂 You are so lucky to have found the person in your life who brings out the best in you.

    It’s such a hard balance to keep between being a grumpy cactus and someone so kind that people often take advantage. Being a hard-nose has it’s downside, too.
