Some people are gobsmacked, others surprised or amazed, but how many are truly astonished?
Such is the single word prompt today.
I don’t think I have ever had this effect on anyone. Sure I’ve surprised a few people, but astonish them? That would be a No.
As for anyone having that effect on me? Maybe.
However, I do remember an absolutely amazing coincidence coming out of Amsterdam’s Centraal Station on May 11th 1991 when the barrel organ starting playing just as I cleared the gates.
It was my first time ever out of the country and we were on our honeymoon.
I think you could definitely say I was astonished then as I felt like a Queen/Million Bucks though Hubby assured me he hadn’t planned it (but wished he had).
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.
