Tuesday Photo Challenge – Lift

Frank gives us a superb photo of the Falkirk Wheel, a type of lock Hubby and I would have loved to encounter when we had the boat.
There are many forms of lift that come to mind…….. giving someone a lift home, the lifts in a building, lifting something up, having a face lift, or lifting one’s spirits.

I’m usually a cheerful soul, but when I’m down, I’m really down as there’s no middle level.
Last year when things started going down the tubes with an increase in our river licence and a massive hike in mooring fees, other financial worries were also beginning to amass and I ‘lost it’ in the launderette.
Our friends knew things were tight already, but had no idea just how much until that day.
They went off shopping and she came back with a bunch of daffs. That was almost enough to set me off again, but in a nice way.
Such a simple gesture, but it raised my spirits no end.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. I’ve never seen a Falkirk wheel. What an interesting contraption. I’m glad the daffodils gave you a lift and hope all worked out in the end.

  3. I have never seen anything like that — a Falkirk Wheel. I’ll have to use Google to see if anything like that can be found in this state (or the ones next door).
