It was a step into the unknown, one of many that shouldn’t falter or cause anyone to lose their resolve. No-one had anticipated it, and there was the rub. No plan in place.
Now a State of Emergency was choking on red tape. Decisions had been made, but it was like trying to wring blood out of a stone. Backbiting, backstabbing and back tracking had all left their mark.
Time was running out and stress levels had overtaken common sense. Her manque handling of negotiations began to weigh against her, so in desperation and with a clenched jaw, she called a general election in the hope of passing the buck.

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.
